Absecon Bay Sportsman Center

Absecon, NJ, U.S.A.

Endorsed by 11153 people

I established Absecon Bay Sportsman Center on July 1st 1985 when my wife Judy and I bought what was at the time simply Absecon Boat Yard, which provided docking, winter storage and limited repair service to the local boating population and a very limited selection of bait and tackle. Mostly catering to the extremely popular Summer Flounder fishing.

It has been a long haul, but I have transformed this into what I believe is the best total Fishing Center in Southern New Jersey. I specialize in Back Bay and Inshore Fishing and carry every type of Bait and Tackle which is necessary for this type of fishing.

I went out with my #1 Son yesterday and dropped the minnow traps.  With the terrible weather I really don't have much hope for many local minnows.  I do have a BIG load of Southern minnows headed this way so I should be in great shape for the opener. Take note that the Channel Markers are up in Absecon Channel and if you can manage to Stay between the Navigational Beacons you shouldn't have any trouble getting in or out of Absecon Creek any time.

Lucas kept the Drum Parade flowing yesterday, bringing in this 53# beauty.  Another Delaware By fish, the HOT Bite down there has everybody scrambling for Surf Clams.  All my Shell clams were gone yesterday, there was no Tuesday delivery.  The next possibility is that I pre-ordered a good load for Friday.  They should be here sometime about noon.  I do have a decent supply of Fresh Frozen Pints if you want to give them a try.
When you own a Bait and Tackle Shop, you never know what you will find when you open the cooler in the morning.  It looks like something that might have rolled off a Meat Wagon.  But seriously wherever these two Bay Hogs came from there seem to be plenty around to catch, especially in Delaware Bay.  If you are going to give them a try I have plenty of clams and hope to have more in tomorrow.
The Kids Bluefish Tournament is on, good luck to all.  The Sun is actually shining and a moderate wind from the South West is turning on the Heat Pump and it's going to be a warm one.  Not many boat reports for the last week or so, It's hard to give specific reports so it's time to get out and make some.  I've got plenty of Surf Clams and Fresh Bunker in stock along with everything else.  Stop by and take advantage of the 2018 Customer Appreciation SALE on the way out.  See you on the water.
