The Jersey Shore is well-known for its challenging recreational sportfishing. Forked River, with its proximity to the Barnegat Bay Inlet and Atlantic Ocean is no exception.

The Barnegat Ridge, ranging in depth from 46 to 58-ft, is 16 miles southeast of Barnegat Inlet where sea depth climbs from 95-ft to 55-ft creating an upwelling of nutrient rich water that attracts schools of baitfish to the Ridge, along with the gamefish that feed on them; species like Atlantic Bonita, marlin, mahi and others. The Barnegat Light Reef is made up of wrecks, reef balls, tanks, concrete castings, etc. and is 3.1 miles out of the Barnegat Inlet.
