Hello, all.  I did a search and found some information, but wanted to post to get some feedback.  My wife and I are considering keeping our boat in either the Manasquan River or Shark River next year.  We are not hard-core fishermen or crabbers, but we like variety, so we chose the rivers for their accessability to the ocean.  My wife really enjoys crabbing in the Barnaget Bay, so I want to be sure wherever we choose has good places to crab.  Looking for pros and cons from people familier with each river.  Thanks in advance.

Shark River never has good reports.  Manasquan is better but if your going to head that far you mind as well head a little farther to the Good Luck Point Area.  Good Luck

I fish both inlets, my pick would be Manasquan plus you would be closer to Barneget bay. Also Belmar/Shark river is not known as a good crabbing spot & there slips for the season $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Actually, my dad and I went out of Good Luck Point my whole childhood, and that's where he introduced my wife to crabbing.  We went around Barnegat today looking for marinas there and found a nice spot if we decide to land there.  We're still trying to figure out exactly what we want and where we want to be.  I've heard the same about crabbing in Shark River...even from a marina owner there I spoke to today.  Gotta give him credit for being a stand-up guy and telling me straight.  Thanks for the replies.

Hey Poker Face
We have a boat that we keep at a Yacht Club in the Shark River. Growing up my whole life at the Jersey Shore I can tell you that Shark River really does not have good crabbing. There are some there and 2009 was one of the better years there, maybe 7 or 8 crabs a trip and all way in the back of the rivers at high tide. Manasquan is you better choice as i offers accessibility to the upper Barnaget Bay and down to Toms River.  Bayhead is also a good place.
I have been crabbing my whole life and found Sayreville, Morgan, Keyport and Red Bank to be very good spots. The crabs generally run bigger up there than down in Barnaget.
Good luck and full pots.

The Navasink was amazing last year - I'll be there quite a bit from August-October, and would be happy to share a boat rental with anyone.
