Fished this area for first time for a couple of hours this afternoon.  Started landing nice smallmouth right off the bat and a gigantic catfish.  Water was 72 degrees.

I am also going to this are next week for the first time and am hoping the smallmouth bite will be decent.  From what I can tell your better off heading offshore to the island shoals and reefs.  I’m also looking for any tips or suggestions.

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.

The Fish Creek area has some great structure within a 5 mile ride from the launch.  Areas like Adventure Island, Hat Island, Horseshoe Reef and Chambers Island have huge expanses of structure.  These areas are great for both smallies and walleyes.  I like to dropshot smallies or pitch grubs and tubes for them.  The walleyes can be caught shivering or trolling with either spinners or crankbaits.  Work the deep edges of structure for both species and, if the wind gives you enough cover, move up to the tops of humps.  Good luck!!  Capt Jerry

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

Bringing the family up to Egg Harbor Aug 17th - 21.
Would like to put the boat in the water and try for some smallies and eyes.

Any tips on where to go, presentation and bait would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Gerbil.

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.
