Fished egg harbor from the shore the past couple days. The bite was a little off, but you can still manage some fish and the occasional big one. Best bite was in the morning and the drop shot was hands down the best presentation. Small minnow imitations and 3" senko were the ticket.

Caught a couple nice fish this morning shore fishing. 1/8 oz jig and night crawler worked well as long I could keep it away from the gobies. I also caught one smallie on a jig and plastic skirt. Nice morning and some fun fishing.
Thank you to all those who shared any information.
Staying in Egg Harbor with my family for 5 days this week. I am open to fishing anything from shore. I am just looking for some pointers on where to go and what to target so I know what to pack. I could care less what I catch as I will not be filleting anything. I have limited space in the car. Perhaps I will jump on with a guide but don't want to spend to much money. If you know of a bait shop that will give me some clues, that works too.
PM me. Thx
Anyone else have any pointers on where to try for some steelhead, and what baits to use? I have checked out a few of the creeks on the east side in the past like Heinz and Hibbard I believe. They look pretty small. Cleo's, Spawn sacs, big trebles (lol)...? Thanks for any help.
Coming up to stay over Easter weekend in Egg Harbor. Would love to bring the rods. Are there any steelhead running up there? Or Browns in Egg Harbor? I have been bringing my family up for Easter every year and have always wanted to try some fishing (from shore), but don't know where to begin. Any info would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks
