Absecon Bay Sportsman Center

Absecon, NJ, U.S.A.

Endorsed by 11084 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.

Here Comes the Sun.  I've already got the Grass shrimp and I'm back in the shop in case anyone is going to take advantage of a Chilly but Beautiful Morning.  It sounds like weather-wise the afternoon is going to fall apart, but it will give you a chance to clean a mess of White perch you catch this morning.
Are You Ready To Troll? Get Ready for Spring Bunker Spooning for Striped Bass.  They followed the Bunker Schools slout last fall and they will be following them north this spring.
      I have two Tony Maja Signature, Canyon Reels HS-18 lever Drag Reels That I filled with 300 feet of Tony Maja 50#  Monel Wire Line, backed up with 100 yards of 65# Power Pro Braid to get you down to the Striper Zone. 
      I would like to move them along in a hurry so I have listed them both on Ebay.  They are listed on a True No Reserve Auction, minimum bid was $1 and they are past that now.  This is your chance to get a true deal on a great product.  I personally filled the reels with line and the wire and braid is worth over $60 by itself.  
    They were both displayed on the Tony Maja Spoon Special Rods which I cannot ship because of the length.  They are still available, but they are selling at Tony's MSRP.  If anyone local wins the auction and wants a rod, you can pick up the reel and I will throw in your choice of Tony Maja Bunker Spoon if you buy the Rod.

It's almost time!  In two weeks Striped Bass will be fair game in our estuaries throughout New Jersey.  It's a good bet that many of my Customers and Fans will be catching them, and in many cases, when they are of legal size, they will be killing them and enjoying some fabulous eating after a winter without fresh fish.  As usual, I will be encouraging this barbaric practice by offering Gift Certificate Rewards for the first legal Stripers brought into Absecon Bay Sportsman Center, after 6 am.  March 1st.  
We've come thru a January Deep Freeze, but conditions are improving rapidly.  White Perch Reports are already running rampant and there is a Full Moon on March 1st which means that there will absolutely be a n early run of River Herring upstream in all of the rivers and there should be Striped Bass following them to add to those that overwintered in the brackish waters.  Unless there is some kind of weather disaster I expect someone to bring in a keeper on the 1st. I hope it's you.  It will be good to finally see some real fishing pictures on Facebook for a change.
Details on prizes will be posted in an

Nothing like getting a January perch in your Kayak.  Bruce enjoys his time on the water and really enjoys a good seafood meal.  When you catch it between snowflakes it's even better.
