Absecon Bay Sportsman Center

Absecon, NJ, U.S.A.

Endorsed by 10132 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.

White Perch fever has reached epidemic proportions.  I am getting lots of questions about regulations.  Fishing in Tidal Waters you DO NOT need a license and there is no size or bag limit. 
 Above the Freshwater Lines, see Picture, You do need a license  and there is a 25 fish bag limit, no size limit.  Get out, catch them up and please keep only what you are going to eat ... They taste GREAT!
Bruce had another great morning in his Kayak.  The small stripers also picked up since last week, but he quit earlier than he planned because of the wind.  Bloodworms were the bait of choice and I should be back to counting worms about noon tomorrow.  I'll post as soon as they get here, but call before you get here.  I do have plenty of Grass Shrimp.
#MEATWAGON crew Doug, Gary and Anthony picked up some of my last blood worms and did a job on the White Perch this afternoon.  I won't have any more bloods until Tuesday, I do have some Grass Shrimp and I'll be up early to try and catch more.  I do have a good selection of Shrimp Nets in stock if you want to catch your own.
I did get a nice ball of shrimp this morning so I should be good for the day.  it's been a steady stream of Cabin Fever plagued anglers heading out in search of the Mighty Perch.  I'm working on my second box of bloodworms and don't expect any more until Tuesday so if you want to be sure of getting yours don't wait.  It looks like a beautiful day making up, get out and enjoy it,
I got a
Clear and calm with rising temperatures. What a weekend to get out and catch a bucket of White Perch for the first fresh fish meal of the year. Great reports from the Mullica and Great Egg estuaries. I'm loaded with Grass Shrimp and still have bloodworms, but more are on the way. I'm here all day so even if you aren't going fishing stop by and at least talk about it.
A little skim ice on the creek banks this morning, but the weather man has mild weather for most of the next week.  I topped of the Grass Shrimp Supply and the Bloodworms are in and look as good as bloodworms look.  I also had a good report of White Perch up around the Port Republic Dam on Nacote Creek.  There hasn't been too much rain this winter so it might be a good time to give the Bulkhead in Mays Landing a try.  I will try and be open thru the weekend, but please give a call to make sure I'm around.  609-484-0409
Mandatory Bloodworm Photo ... They are here, $12 a dozen same as last year.  The weatherman has given us a GO.  so time to catch some White Perch.  Whose got Cabin Fever?
Perch Time.  I'm getting more and more positive reports every day and the Grass Shrimp cooperated this morning so I should be in good shape for the whole weekend.  The Lower Bank area on the Mullica is supposed to be hot,  I don't have specifics out of the Great Egg, but they are biting.  Bloodworm Pete said that Maine got clobbered by over a foot of snow last weekend, but now they are definitely on the way and will be here sometime today.
Kayak Bruce put enough Mullica River white perch in the sink to make a couple good dinners.  He said that there are catfish and short stripers in the mix for some good action.  I finally kicked the cold that has knocked me down for about two weeks and got a decent supply of Grass Shrimp this morning.  I'm still waiting for the bloodworms, I hope this storm up in Maine didn't shut down the diggers.  Looks like the weekend will warm up again.
I didn't think that I would be playing with these slimy critters until March, However the weatherman has been good to us and the long range forecast looks like Fishing Season Has begun.   I gave Worm Man Pete a call and he will be bringing in the first load Tuesday.  Don't make me sorry I did, Time to get out on the rivers.  Please call ahead to make sure I am here.  609-484-0409
Clean Up Time. I'm taking advantage of this beautiful day to do some house cleaning.  Here is a 30 year collection of Propellers.  Mostly OMC 4 and 6 cylinders.  A few Mercs.  There are at least 13 stainless that are mostly in decent to good shape.  Take the whole lot for $1,000.  If anyone is real interested I will get out some more details. I will start putting them up on Ebay real soon. Call 609-484-0409 or message here.
