Default Fishing in Cape May

Hubby and I will be in Cape May all next week and would like to know if anyone is willing to share some excellent fishing spots. We already know about Poverty Beach, Higbee Beach and the jetty by the ferry. Another good spots? I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Cape May Point is hot right now. Theres a bait shop (Cape May Bait & Tackle) at the beginning of Sunset Blvd. that could point you in the right direction. A lot of flounder, mostly small, are being caught along the jetties.

Well we're back and we managed to hit a few places that were pretty nice. It was a nice surprise that the locals were willing to share their fishing spots with us. You don't get that too much anymore. We did catch fish, but unfortunately they were all shorts and according to the people that were also fishing there, they weren't having too much luck either. Oh well. We'll just have to try our luck at IBSP for the next few months now and hope for the best.

We wanted to Joe but believe it or not a lot of the locals told us not to go there because it's always too crowded, they pack the people in, and if you don't get there early you'll wait for a while. So we decided not to go. I'd still like to go there someday though. Have you ever been there? If so, how's the food?

Don't know about eating in, but their take-out is to die for.

Can't beat the food at the Lobster House. You do have to wait if you get there late but the old working dock out back now has "tables" and a bar and it is a very nice place to sit and while away the wait. The reason it is so packed is because there are very, very few places in the area where the food is worth the money.

As a matter of fact we weren't staying too far from there so we had lunch there one day then dinner another day. We were very pleased with everything. Would definitely recommend it and definitely go back.
