Default Beginner IBSP tomorrow...some questions

To start with this is my first post so I'll just say a little about myself, I'm 19..just bought a 9 ft tsunami pole and matched it to a eclipz ez-50 spinning reel that I loaded with 17lb test. I've been reading this forum for a while and have been fishing with no luck. I'm taking a day off from work tomorrow so I'm heading to IBSP. I've been fishing with clams, but tomorrow I'm gonna try bunker and lures. I've been trying to get stipers but tomorrow I'm going for anything I can catch.
So now the questions. Where are the best areas right now, and why if you know? Also where can i find a map of these areas? I see people talking about areas but dont know where to find a map of them.

Any other tricks of the trade that you guys would like to share would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance.

I've had trouble getting into any fish around here this season. But it's been a couple weeks since I went out and the water has warmed up a great deal since then,, I'm sure the bite is probably pretty hot right now. Gonna go out this weekend.

There are some pretty good spots down in Tiverton, by the bridges. Horseneck Beach area is known for good surf fishing as well. Another place you might try is out on West Island south of Fairhaven,, hearing reports of good fishing out there. When you get back up here, give me a shout and we'll see if we can hook up some fish together.

Not exactly sure where IBSP is but here's a link to mapstech. Just type in the town that your interested in and zoom in on the exact location that interests you (double click to center the area, then zoom).

Hi NJRI Island Beach state Park

The Jersey shore will produce until the the dog days when the water temps get too warm. then they will either move offshore to deeper waters or migrate north. There are still plenty of fish still here.
They will return following the mullet along the coast in September.

Jim, thanks for cleaning up my post. I have to figure out how you did that.

IBSP looks like a neat place. I really love the Jersey shore. Lived in Brigantine while I was in college down there. It's too bad the Army Corp of Engineers screwed with the shoreline by building all those jettys.

Default IBSP

I went fishing Saturday night at IBSP. I got skunked but still trying to find the spots. For some reason even though I had 4x4 the guy wouldn't let me drive on. I didn't see anyone pull anything out either. I was casting into the waves. I fished the entire outgoing and was casting into the white caps. I was using 6 once weights with clams and bunker. Any suggestions I would appreciate it.
