Check the local rules, during the summer many have hours of no surf fishing right near people swimming. Good spots are North Wildwood sea wall and the bridge area towards Cape May.

Panch is absolutely correct.

No fishing on the beach in Wildwood Crest, or even Wildwood itself.

The area near the bridges between Wildwood Crest and Cape May seems popular.

Sunset Lake area and the waterway near the entrance to Wildwood on Rio Grande always has fishing.

I believe you can surf fish in North Wildwood, on the beach, near the seawall. At least I have seen people surf fishing there, right near the Hereford Inlet.

I do not fish, but believe you need a license to fish anywhere in NJ.

Let’s see, there is a Borough Ordinance prohibiting surf fishing in Wildwood Crest:

https://www.wcbp.org/beach-policies.html

Doesn’t state only when the lifeguards are there.

Telling a visitor to do something illegal isn’t good advice at all.

The saltwater fishing registration link can be found here:

https://www.nj.gov/dep/saltwaterregistry/

The beaches of Wildwood Crest aren’t even good for fishing as there is no depth to the water and the sand bars extend forever.

You are better off in North Wildwood or Cape May Point if you actually want to catch something.

WOW!! So my post was removed and deemed inappropriate. Yet you have posts still up from another user giving untrue advice and bad facts?!?!? Explain why trip advisor! I provided accurate information, sources to check and personal experience facts. Sounds like the person who deleted the post should not be in the position they are as they are bad at doing their job. You can delete this too. Since you like to steer people with bad advice and think it's ok.
