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.

Pierson caught his first Keeper Flounder for dad for Father's Day dinner.  He had the only fish on the boat and was smiles from ear to ear.  the last time I saw him he was still carrying his fish.
Maybe we are looking in the wrong places.  Marco fishes off the Absecon Bay Sportsman Center dock almost every day and usually he is keeping the White perch honest and taking home enough big ones for a meal.  Today he will be eating better.  He pulled this 19
Live Spot on the way, Just in time for Striped Bass, Tuna, Flounder, Weakfish.  ETA less than one hour.  Details when they arrive.
My new Flounder T-Shirts have been here for about a week, but my head has been underwater in the Crab Tanks and I really didn't get a chance to let the world know.  Now that I'm up for air, here they are.  Besides this PINK which your girlfriend or wife should be wearing, we have lots of colors that would be great for Fathers Day.  The Performance T-Shirts are only $20 , ($25 for Big Daddy sizes) and Regular T-Shirts are Only $15.  Stop by on your way fishing, pick up the minnows and the picture on the shirt won't be the only Flounder that you bring home.
I'm still recuperating from too many hours at the Crab Tanks, but here's a couple really nice fish caught Sunday Afternoon by Alex and his Aunt.  Absecon Bay Sportsman Center minnows did the trick.  And yes I do still have soft shells, but unless I get lucky and get some shedders  from the Delaware Bay I may run out soon.
When the wind stops, the fish will bite.  Here is Zachary Tomlinson' s catch from yesterday afternoon.  He is putting in his time and here he came up with his first Sheepshead of the season.  They are tough to get the bite, tougher to set the hook and still harder to land.  He did loose a second even bigger so they are around if you want to learn to catch these big, hard fighting, good eating fish.  Th topped that off with a nice flounder and said the water in the bay was still looking pretty clean.  With today's NW wind the bite should turn on for all the fishies we love to hook.
