Day Trip to Tuckerton NJ 


Tuckerton Bait and Tackle - 338 S Green St (609) 294-8365
South Green Street is right off of route 9.

1st stop in the morning - Get bait!

Tuckerton Bait and Tackle is a small quaint fishing shop. It has a historic New England Seafaring town feel. The prices are the most reasonable that we have found in the area and the owner was extremely nice. He has restored the small building and he was glad to offer some history about the area as well as some crabbing tips. Grab a net, a crab trap and some drop lines along with some bunker crabbing bait and your on your way!


The best bait for crabbing is bunker, but any oily fish or fish carcasses or chicken backs will do. It is fun to go to the bait and Tackle shop with the kids and look around. Don't forget your bucket. If you are planning on keeping your crabs then you should do this part of the day trip last so you can get the crabs home alive and fresh. But if you are going just for fun, do this first thing in the morning as crabbing is better in the early AM hours.

South Green Street Park Crabbing New Jersey

Great Crabbing Spot

All the way at the end of the road, there is a small park area with railings around it, parking, a pavilion, and a bathroom. The South Green Street Park is a perfect place to Crab right off the Bulk head. You will see other fellow crabbers who will be willing to lend a hand if your not really sure how to crab.

Tie up your drop line on a Piling

Crabbing is a lot of fun for the whole family. You may not catch a large amount of crabs, but you can catch enough to eat if you go about it correctly. It is easy, inexpensive, and entertaining. This spot is a great location for crabbing with small children.

Panini Bay restaurant

Panini Bay Restaurant is located on 101 Parker Rd in Tuckerton, NJ. (609-294-4281) Panini Bay is a a cozy, warm restaurant that overlooks the bay. The food is simple but very original. Spaghetti and local clams with white or red sauce is a real winner! We didn't get a chance to try it but we've heard that Kathy's Bolognese sauce is absolutely wonderful. Well worth a try.

Have lunch at a very nostalgic Stewarts

This is one really cool Stewarts where the 50's still Lives On! A very fun atmosphere with great service, head to Stewart's. It has an authentic 50's style and old Fashioned Car hop service. There is  no air conditioned dining room, but it offers a great view of the lake, bay and Tuckerton Seaport. Truly one of the Last of a dying breed.
