Belmar Fishing Seasons
The huge crowds and sunny days of summer are a long way off in January. Hardy anglers can be well rewarded this time of year with catches of Cod and Tautog, though.
What could be more romantic than a wild, seaside stroll along Belmar’s beautiful boardwalk? How about a tasty fish dinner of freshly-caught Blackfish? There are plenty around!
The summer fishing season finally starts to get going in March, with the arrival of Striped Bass. Flounder are also open for harvest this time of year, making for even more tasty food fishing!
The Jersey Shore Beach ‘n’ Boat Tournament kicks off in April. This event runs all season, with payouts of $1,000 and $500 for the first and second biggest fish across many different species.
The Belmar Seafood Festival is a great place to enjoy a ton of delicious treats in May. Otherwise, go catch your own! Stripers, Black Drum, Bluefish, and Seabass are all in season.
Shark season is well underway by June, with Makos, Threshers, and other Shark species tearing into schools of Bluefish offshore. Closer to home, Seabass make for great table fare.
The deep sea spots explode with a range of big game pelagics in July. Blue Marlin, Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Sharks put even the most seasoned anglers through their paces.
August is a great month for any species - assuming you can take the heat. Blackfish, Scup, Flounder, Seabass, and more fill coolers inshore, and the Marlin and Tuna bite is on fire!
The summer fishing frenzy is still going strong, with every major species biting hard both inshore and offshore. When the fishing’s this good, the hardest part is deciding what to target!
Summer may be over, but the offshore bite shows no sign of stopping! Yellowfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi can still be caught in October, and there’s a chance of Marlin, too.
The season officially ends and the year’s biggest catches are announced at the closing of the Jersey Beach ‘n’ Boat Tournament. There are still a ton of tasty fish out there, though!
Most fish have moved on by December, but you can get some productive bottom fishing in for Cod and Tautog all winter long. There are also plenty of Striped Bass and Bluefish around.
