i used to take my trucks on south amboy beach when you were allowed. i never aired down but they would really dig with 31x10.50s. i never got stuck, but i would imagine it being much better.

brick beach has real soft sand and there are alot of tracks, when the tide is up there isnt alot of room so the sand is real soft, i tried 20 psi and it chewed up the tires a bit, when i went to 12 psi i had alot easier time treading threw the sand

I get an IBSP pass every year. I'll have to look into the Toms River and Brick beaches as well. I don't fish, but it's nice to have more places to drive.

I was wondering what type of bait or lures do you use for Stripers? I haven't had any luck this year :[

I fish on Long Island, I usually go to Overlook Beach, but want to try Democrat point, and Montauk. I just air down to about 18 and good to go in my Lib. Unfortunately, I still have the notorious stock tires and will until i can scrape some cash for some nice AT's any suggestions? It's my DD, and keeping the stock suspension in it for now. I was thinking Bridgestone Revos, General Grabbers or Michelin.

Thanks

off the beach usually ava jigs, 17 or 27 with a teaser, or a 2.5 -3 oz top water plug, there are a ton of sand eels around so anything that looks similar works,

i have goodyear mtr's 35's i air down to 12-15 psi's and have no issues. bfg at are always good for sand/snow

I got my IBSP pass this year. Went out for the first time a few weekends ago. I have to say, driving on the beach is a really fun experience. I never knew it was allowed in Jersey. So much easier to load up the car and go. No lugging stuff through the sand on the the beach.

I am not a huge fisherman, however, when I was on the beach, I saw these guys pull out some huge strippers and they definitely gave me some inspiration. So I will def be fishing this year.

The cool thing I have heard about IBSP is that you can stay out there overnight as long as you are actively fishing (I think its only open 6:30am to 10:30 pm right now, though). And, yes, you can have fires on the beach. They also have air stations to fill the tires back up once you get off the sand, which is really convenient



I air down my tires to about 12-15 psi. Def need to air down in the soft sand or else you will sink right in (ok, that was my first time on the beach... but we won't talk about that). As the link someone posted stated, you really want to float above the sand. I was told that if you air down enough, you can drive through anything. And its true.

Man I didn't know you could drive anywhere on the beach except rumors of ibsp at the very end.
