Earle Naval Pier Pass

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Just got mine today and was looking for tackle advice (not spots) from the regulars who fish there. It is an all bait situation or is plugging,bucktails good too ? What type of set up do I need and will 2-4 oz sinkers be ok? What type of net does one use to reach their catch? How far is parking from where you fish?

In the next couple of days, I plan to just take a ride out to get familar with the place. Any help would be appreciated.

man youre lucky. i heard there are lots of fish caught on that pier. i dont know about tackle but youd probably need a pier net. it costs anywhere from 50-70 dollars at the tackle shop and you should tie some weights around the net so it sinks otherwise it will float and its hard to net the fish.

You must be active Navy or retired Navy? That was the regulation I was hit with years ago when I tried to get one. My time spent in a Navy hospital during the war did NOT count. Ain't that something!

Park right where you fish!

2 oz is all I've used. All other tackle you mentioned works. I use mostly bait this time of year - Julian's on 36.

Get a pier net like the Promar 32-Inch Deluxe Hoop Net (google it).

i was there on a destroyer in the mid '70's for a few weeks. we fished squid rite down by the pilings and smoked blackfish ( i didn't even know what they were at the time). i don't guess it gets much fishing pressure so enjoy.

From what I saw you have to be an active or retired military or civilian employee, serving or having served at Earle, or be a reservist on active duty at Earle.

I was in the Marines and stationed there in 1970 for a year.I spent many nights guarding the gate at the pier but I didn’t fish all that much back then. I tried to get a pass a few years ago and they said no way. You have to be either retired or active military or work there as a civilian. This blows big time.

I have fished out there a few times. I can tell you now you will have a blast with artificials. I fished shads when I was out there at night. I worked the shadow line of the peir as well as various other spots. I used bombers at night your typical colors, black, wonderbread, and chicken scratch. When the blues are thick around may make sure you have some beater lures! They are everywhere out there. So many bait fishing is impossible. I have only fished it 4 times but can tell you it is like no other fishing on this planet. During the day bring your gulp and 1/2 oz jig heads! The fluke fishing out there from may through September is unreal! You get two at a time if you find the right hole to fish. The weekfishing gets hot outhere on ocasion but you have to contend with the yellow eyed monsters. The Bass fishing this time of year is awsome! Bring your snaggers with you. Throw heads! You will not be dissapointed there are some big mommas around that peir. Stay in the flats for this you will see what I am talking about. Double the casting distance for the average person from t he shore, unless the bait is out further and fish are crashing than of course go to that spot! Ejoy yourself your lucky! It is the best fishing spot NJ has to offer! I may see you out there if I link up with the guy who used to take me!

If you are on disability from a service connected injury you can get one.
