Can we Still Catch Fish in New Jersey in the Fall?

My wife & I are new to saltwater fishing in New Jersey. We have good luck catching snapper blues, American Shad, and an occaisional weakfish. But fall is coming & we would like to know is can we still catch fish? If so – what baits should we use. We fish at Berkeley Island County Park. We both love to fish and I have more fun watching my wife catch fish. She is pretty good at it. Could you give us a tip? Have a great day!! :) Thanx

It is great to hear you and your family enjoy fishing so much. You should still be able to enjoy it at various points around New Jersey in the Fall. The weather will be colder so what you can catch and the types of bait to use depend on what types of fish you are after.
A great resource is to go online and read the fishing reports around your area. They are updated by the Division of Wildlife on a regular basis. They will tell you what types of fish to catch during a given time of year, where to find them, and even what types of bait people are having the best results with.

Of course you may decide that this fall is the perfect time for a family vacation to a warmer area for some remarkable fishing. You will find plenty of great areas including Florida, California, and along the Gulf of Mexico.
