Manasquan Fishing

Manasquan Fishing

Manasquan, New Jersey, is an Atlantic beach town. Although the vast waters of the ocean are always inviting, Manasquan stands out for its unique inlet. The Manasquan Inlet is part of the Intracoastal Waterway, and it provides a special beach experience for tourists, surfers and fishermen. This is a popular place for novices and experts to fish all season long, but it is just the start of what Manasquan fishing has to offer.

With the Manasquan Inlet so prominent, inshore fishing is one of the most popular pastimes in the area. It is a common spot for families to recreationally catch fish all summer long. This inshore fishing is particularly good for fish like Black Drum, Croaker, Gray Trout (Weakfish), and Rockfish (Striped Bass).

There are plenty of fish just off the coastline as well. If you give nearshore Manasquan fishing a try, you might bring up Black Seabass, Bluefish, False Albacore, Spanish Mackerel, and Triggerfish. For those that venture into the deeper areas offshore, more big fish could await. Off the coast in Manasquan, you can find seasonal catches of Tuna including Bigeye, Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna.. In the warmer months, Mahi-Mahi, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, and Wahoo are caught.

The saltwater options are most prevalent in Manasquan, but freshwater fishing is possible. The Manasquan Reservoir and Manasquan River are important water sources for the local community. Both are abundant with fish. Species might include Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Sunfish, Catfish and Trout.
