Looking for a spot to take out young kids (6 thru 12) crabbing in NJ.  We're in central NJ but don't mind driving (just not down to Cape May....LOL).  I would like to stay on land for the sake of the kids.  Can anyone offer suggestions for a great day out with the kiddies???  If so, can you also offer general directions???   Thanks for your responses!!!

Here are six spots you can try here in South Jersey.

On Route 322/40 heading into Atlantic City, there are several bridges as you enter town from the west.     Any of the bridges with wide sidewalks can be crabbed from using drop baskets or traps.

There is a bridge on Route 9 in Absecon by Holy Spirit high school that can be crabbed from.    Decent crabbing there as well.   Drop nets or traps.     You can also try from the Route 30 bridges heading into Atlantic City, which are nearby.

The Corbin City Game Preserve (Turn onto Grissom Hill Road from Route 50 in Corbin City, Cape May County) has great crabbing, but you need to drive down a long dirt road to get to it.    Stop at any of the spillways along the way (where there is a pipe to allow water through when there are tidal changes.    Roll up your paint legs and walk out into the water ankle deep and toss our handlines with chicken or bunker.    Crabs will come to them.   Make sure you have a net.    You can also scap for crabs here as well.    Lots of crabs here, but also lots of bugs.    Bring bug spray.

 There is a public dock near the BL England Power Plant in Beasley's Point.    Get to it by taking exit 25 from on the Garden State Parkway.    Upon exiting, make a right, then make a right on Route 9 South.    Take it down to the end.    The powerplant and dock are on your left.    The dock is clearly visable.    You will need drop nets or traps.

 Also very close to the same area...    The Beasley's Point bridge is now closed to road traffic.   You can, however, walk out onto the bridge and drop nets or traps.     

Another spot you could try on Dock Street in Barnegat/West Creek. Simply search for the street using Mapquest. There is a public bulkhead where many people crab on the left as you head away from Route 9 and towards the coast. Bring drop nets or traps.

Hope this helps.

Berkeley Island County Park, Bayville.  There's a nice pier. You'll get some keepers with the tide and there's restrooms. I'd tell you a couple of other places, but no restrooms, and that would ruin your day with kids.

There's also Windward Beach in Brick, look on live search. Has a good sized pier and is much closer to you. You'll get some keepers there, but most important for kids, restrooms in the park. Also public beach in case the rascals want to dip.

Anyone know fish are in here? Seems brackish, so no fluke or anything.

Rt. 539 & Green Street, Tuckerton - At the end of the road, there is a small park area with railings around it, parking, a pavilion, and a bathroom. Good area for crabbing, especially with small children.
