Default Island Beach State Park

Hey guys, I was thinking of hitting up the surf from island beach this weekend.
Any reports around? I heard it's been hit and miss.

It'll be a 7 hour trip for us, but it'll be nice to be on the beach again.

I'm also heading down to IBSP on Friday morning, hope to be in the water at 330am for last half of incoming...don't have too much experience on the island but did fish a lot last fall...understanding that structure changes greatly, I do know that the area from two bit road down to the highest dune is generally deeper than farther south, lots more troughs and bars...usually park at maintenance shed and then walk south.

We will probably be walking too

We had a nice jeep wagoneer all set up to go, but it just burned out a piston so now we only have a small suv to drive down.

We won't be down there friday until about 1500 hours, so we'll have some time to scout around until the next incoming.

Thanks for the tip about the maintenence shed! We got a place at island beach motor lodge so we should be pretty close to some action!

yeah man, if you're gonna walk just park at the maintenance shed and walk over the dunes, tons of structure on right there...i've made the mistake of fishing way south, not the best, but if there's a NE blow, which I think there is on Friday, the pocket by the jetty at Barneget inlet can be good...

That's weird, I was just checking out that jetty on Google maps and thought the same thing!

if you're staying at that motel, you don't even need to drive, you can walk south into the park, another good place is in front of the governor's mansion...or if you walk north, seaside heights and casino pier isn't too far...been reading some bunker pods up there but out of beach range...

i'll send you a report if we get anything...and i will be back down on Sat morn so please let me know if you get anything in the eve....

I'm going to bring my laptop but the motel doesn't have wifi. I'll try to find somewhere that does and give you updates.

Hey man, we fished all night friday and most of the day saturday and only caught some skates and one blow toad!

Surf was a little rough, needed 7oz to hold bottom in the surf.

You have any luck btheodore?
