cant get up on plane in the canal. There is a state trooper baracks half way through the canal and the will nail you. F-cove is fun, they were supposed to blockade thatlast year but they never did.

I wouldnt keep my boat in Mantaloking if i were the OP. Easier to trailer to where the fishing is good. Raritan bay and the Ny Harbor are both better fishing and closer to his home. In our area the Barnegat bay is the "DEAD BAY". Better fishing down by the BB or BI but id still rather be in the Raritan bay. He can trailer to the barnegat inlet when it gets good down there.

Fishing outside of Manasquan inlet is really good. You have two reefs right out there - however in a 23 footer, you can't always make it outside. Raritain Bay is a better bet for inside fishing.

Def Raritan Bay unless OP wants to trailer his boat 2 hours to launch.

pastaman lets keep telling the north end is a dead zone. You stoned? Weakes all over the place, winter flounder right in the middle of the dead zone, and all the crabs you want.
Yea Justin just wait till dark then power up. No the canal is not a 5 mph zone, hell the current rips faster then that. It is a no wake zone; but when the current is running there are standing waves over 2 feet and then these weekend idiots think; well I don't know what the fools are thinking. That is the whole problem they don't think. I pass lots of boats in the canal. If they want to sight see just get the hell out of the way when a boat comes up on their stern.

C'mon CB its no place to reccomend to somone that wants to store their boat. I have a homein Chadwick Beachso i deal but there are a lot better place to trailer yourboat to. I have caught weaks on poppers in the Matedaconk and around the Mantaloking bridge as well as some blues and fluke but if you can trailer your boat anywereyou mean to tell me you would pick brick over the Raritan Bay?Where we live the fishing is spotty at best. Great cabbing though you are right about that!
