Absecon Bay Sportsman Center

Absecon, NJ, U.S.A.

Endorsed by 10871 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.

Never Forget ... On September 21, 1982, Al McReynolds met his buddy Pat Erdman for a night of surf fishing.  What came next is amazing.  I loved to fish, but had recently been married and was too busy trying to put food on the table.  My Brother Tim Showell was a life guard with Al at the time and was supposed to fish that night, but he must have pussied out with the Nore'Easter.  There are lots of re-tellings of the story, here's one.  The conditions are here, the mullet are here, what are you doing tonight?
Only a crazy person  ... Sitting, waiting for full daylight to see if this NE wind will stir up the mullet. Dark and dreary, but something is gonna happen.

These Mega Bait LiveJigs have been hanging around. They are wearing old price tags and I'm cutting that in half. Somebody is going to catch a whole lot of stripers  ... cheap.
Another option to get a line wet between seasons.  These toothy critters live in almost every South Jersey body of water and give a mean fight.  Here's what Michael said,
Nothing running today but I picked up my beach permit and checked out the 4 wheel drive. It's a GO. Come on Mullet.

Nothing fools a big Striper like live bait.  I have two
I went on a mullet hunt this morning, I didn't find what I wanted.  I believe they are still scattered an feeding up for the big run, probably on the next full moon.  I did catch enough to say that I have live mullet for sale.  If you don't want to bother netting them yourself you knw where to find them.
