People are always raving about their Springmaid Pier experience!  According to Dick Martin, for the Newark Advocate, “I love to saltwater fish, and my plan recently was to do as much as possible. My wife loves to shop, and her plan was to do as much as possible. A good combination.  My place to do that fishing was the Springmaid Pier on the south end of the beach, and as soon as we’d unpacked and I’d found the time for high tide (I like to fish two hours on either side) I bought some mullet and fresh shrimp and hotfooted it out to the end.  While I happily fished away, my wife drove the rental car to a huge shopping mall and shopped her brains out before she picked me up well after high tide. A good day and more to come.
