Sport Fishing in New Jersey



The waters of New Jersey play host to a wide variety of gamefish throughout the year. Whether you want to troll the canyons for Yellowfin and Bigeye Tuna, or drift the beaches for Fluke and Weakfish.
Canyon fishing targets large pelagic gamefish such as Yellowfin, Longfin, and Bigeye Tuna. These fish can range from 30 to 300 lbs. and are pound for pound the hardest fighting fish in the ocean. Also encountered on these trips are Blue and White Marlin, Swordfish, and Mahi-Mahi. These trips range from 24 to 36 hours, with some of the best fishing occurring at night.

On the inshore grounds Bluefin Tuna, Sharks, Stripers, Bluefish, Blackfish, Seabass, Fluke and Weakfish,Croakers will all make an appearance. This fishing can take place less than a mile off the beach, and is always enjoyable. In recent years the Striped Bass and Weakfish have made huge showings near the beaches, and has resulted in some of the best fishing in years. Bluefishing still provides some of the most exciting action inshore, and Blackfish and Sea Bass are still providing some of the tastiest fillets around.

Here's a list of fish that I have personally caught off the beaches of SJ.

Weakfish, Bluefish, Croaker, Flounder, Seabass, Porgy, Spot, Kingfish, Perch, Red Hake, Brown Shark, Black Drum, Tog and of course the almighty Striper.

"Junk" fish...Oystercracker, Sandshark, Sandusky, Eels and various Skates and Rays.

"Strange" catches include Stargazer, Lizardfish, Pompano, Needlefish and Red Drum.

I'm sure that there are others but I haven't caught them yet. By the way, the fall seems to be the best time to get the largest variety of fish.

Yes, yes and yes. Be sure to check size limits.
