New Jersey Perch Fishing in January/February

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

During this striper surf fishing winter lull, I’d like to try perch fishing for the first time.  I’m just reading about tackle and bait options right now.  Is there any good perch fishing in New Jersey in January/February?  I don’t have a boat….any recommendations for particular riverbanks towns in NJ that might be productive this time of year (and any local bait & tackle shops near it you’d recommend for supplies, bait and advice)?  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I assume you mean white perch?  They tend to move around a lot in schools.  Fish brackish water with small bait like worm parts.  My favorite is tin shad darts with soft plastic twister tails but almost any small bucktail will work.  Keep moving around until you find them.  Find one and there'll be more.
