I still fish off the pier and have been pretty successful this year, so far. Last year they only allowed fishing on the weekend. I fished once. This year, they changed back to everyday, of course, operation permitting. I caught many striper in the spring this year. There have been very large ones caught this year. I haven't been out fluking since I've been on travel. This week and next week I will be hitting the pier.
I am retired Navy, so I have access to the pier and the criteria is, I can sponsor two personnel, but can only take one person out at at time. There's a $50 fee and a background check for the people that are sponsored.
As june181901 explained, it still is an active Navy pier and the only deep water pier on the east coast, so it won't be going away from the Navy anytime soon. It's not like it used to be when it was bustling with sailors trying to get on those Shamrock buses to leave their ships (USS Nitro, USS Butte, USS Seattle, USS Detroit and Suribachi), since the pier was restricted personal cars.

If that pier is ever decommissioned , it will be cleaned out of life in a few months.. Every salt water fishing boat within 100 miles would descend on it.
Fish that come and go seasonally will get mopped up as soon as they arrive.
Its attractive to fish, we all know that-it always was,
Open it up and it will be twice as attractive to fishermen.
Just too many people would fish it..

That being said, NJ sure could use a few well designed , large, safe, easy access ,public fishing piers in the bay/ocean.. Other states have them, never could understand why NJ doesn't... bob

We did. Look up Long Branch fishing pier. Was there as a kid. GREEDY DEVELOPERS take every inch of shore time they can.

Look at Sea Bright for what's wrong. The sea wall is state property and land owners across Ocean Avenue ( State Rte 36) from it put up illegal steps and platforms on them and then have the balls to put up no trespassing signs on state property. Then want the state to maintain their stolen beach & sea wall after every storm.

Deal does the same thing to keep people OFF THEIR beaches by blocking land access. Not allowing cars to park on the streets. These people are emboldened by town's that look the other way.

It's local $ that drives this corrupted public access definition and shoreline greed.
