I fished Jersey for a good 20 years up until 2014 when I fished mostly on Long Island, then 2015 just 2 Jersey trips. Why? Because of all the beach replenishment. Then after hitting Demo and Montauk, Jersey is done.
But I had so many great Jersey trips. The Bug Light, False Rip, Island Beach, My Rock at Seven Presidents and Spring Lake. Dozens of great outings to these spots.
And then the state decided beach replenishment would be a good idea. Bury the jettys, kill all the creatures that were in the surf line, completely wreck the beaches with crud.
