The NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife has compiled a list of marinas and bait shops to assist those planning on fishing and crabbing in the state's coastal waters. In addition to renting boats, these locations likely sell supplies and may provide good fishing and crabbing information to the public, whether renting a boat or not. The list is provided for informational purposes only and facilities on it are not endorsed by the division.
The public should be aware that there are rules and regulations regarding the taking of marine fish and crabs, and a license may be required for crabbing depending on the method used. See the Marine Digest for details. Non-commercial crab pot licenses can be purchased on line at www.nj.wildlifelicense.com or at license agents; shellfish licenses are not sold at all agent locations.
