Fishing Access Location

14th Street Pier Hoboken

Just north of the ferry terminal.

   Take Park Avenue south to 14th street. Just keep heading east on the 14th Street viaduct… it dead ends in to this pier. On street parking is available with meters costing 25 cents for 45 minutes. Fish for a couple of hours for a couple of bucks. Not bad. There are hi-rise apartment building all around this location. Great for the residents to fish. The pier is well lit in the evening. There is a fish cleaning station right on the pier with a gazebo at the end. 38 benches give the anglers a handy place to sit. HRFA V. President Tony Evangelista likes this new pier in the fall. He also prefers the incoming water but give the outgoing a shot as well.

 

The pier decking is made...not of brick...or paving stone...or wood.  The decking floorboards are made of artificial wood material called "Trek."  It looks and feels like wood but gives you no splinters.  It is made of wood fibers and recycled plastic.

Fish cleaning stations and bait stations are placed all along the railing.

   Sandworms, clams, and cut bunker can be purchased from Moe’s Tackle right up the hill from this location. Very convenient. You may need a special extended net for hauling up that big striped bass. The pier is about ten feet above the water. Some of the guys fabricate a net out of a “de-spoked” bicycle wheel on a rope. Very clever device. The fall season has produced some big striped bass off this pier. In November of 2001 a 34 pound 44 inch striped bass was taken off this pier. For fish that size, you need a reel with a lot of line capacity. 17 to 30 pound test essential. Many schoolie sized stripers in the 20 to 25 inch size will be caught but you must be prepared for that lunker when he comes around. Bluefish, weakfish and fluke have also been landed from this location.

The spring of 2002 saw this location come alive for the spring spawning run of striped bass.  HRFA members often got together to meet at the 14th Street pier for an evening of fishing. Again and again reports came in of wonderful caught and released fish off this pier. If you live in Hoboken, this magical spot is within walking or bicycle distance.  Make the trip.  Facilities for refreshments are all around you.  Restaurants and  and convenience stores line the streets. It's got it all...except parking.  There is a pay-parking lot at the end of the pier if you can't find a spot.
