Finding the fish on the Bay

We fish here year round. This year the Stripers won as we didn't get any. Got some awesome size Flounders and weakfish. The bay is well marked until November but easy to navigate. Small beach by the Liquor store and small beach by Kennedy Park. Water is clean and there's 2 gas stations within a half mile of each other... More

This is a fantastic, new bridge to visit! It has multiple areas to walk in and the upkeep of them is great. You can walk from Somers Point to Ocean City if you really wanted to! The visitor center is great for any tourists in the area, they also have 24/7 vending machines there with snacks and drinks. It's an... More

Many have written of the views from the bridge and how it serves drivers, walkers, runners, bikers,fisher folk. I go out of my way to use this way into (and out of) Ocean City; it is a delight to drive: it rises, falls; it banks and curves left, then right. It is a pleasure to become part of this living...

One of the best things about entering Ocean City New Jersey is the beautiful view experienced while crossing the 9th street bridge

I walk the Bridge almost daily and it is obvious there are two sides to the Bridge. The Somers Point Side and the Ocean City Side. I believe the cut off for each is the turn into the fishing pier. While the Ocean City side is always clean, the Somers Point side is the total opposite. The Ocean City side... More

We discovered a free boat launch next to The Waterfront Marina last year which is now the favorite spot to launch, whether fishing or skiing. There is also a fenced pier to fish or crab.

This is a no brainer. If you have the chance to walk, ride a bike or drive over this bridge it is a joy. There a bathrooms at the welcome center - and if you ask nicely at Circle Liquors (who do have nice prices compared to 34th street). Highly recommend.

This bridge is amazing! The view from both directions is spectacular. The welcome center offers a great view as well. During our trip several different species of birds were nesting. We couldn't get enough pictures of the view from the bridge.

My wife and I count the people on the bridge on any given day, during season. Memorial Day to Labor day is the season and my record is 149 people. Men, women and children, even a few 4 legged creatures. Runners, hikers, bikers, families w/ strollers, fishermen and just sight seers. Obviously, the designer of bridge had forsight to think...

The lights on the bridge at night are so pretty. The views are stunning and the bay breeze is wonderful.
