Summertime favorite

Flounder is one of the most popular fish we catch from May to September. They are hard fighting, fun fish to catch and if you catch a keeper 18″ we can fillet your fish for dinner.

Blue claw by the Bushel

Like our flounder, Crab is available during the summer season. You can fish by hand line, trap or even crab pot if you have a crabbing license which is inexpensive. Head out for a lazy day with the kids and throw out some lines for a good time.

Bluefish Blitz

Bluefish have been invading our bay the last few years. We have had big schools of gator blues and large schools of snappers all summer long. When the baitfish are around the blues have been biting.

Striper Bass

Spring Stripers

In the Bay by the bridges, we catch Striped Bass during the migrations with Spot, Eels, Bunker, and Clams. Occasionally resident Striper is caught for a big Suprise.

Tautog in the bay!

The sneaky, lighting fast bite of the Blackfish is addictive. We use green crab and clam to catch the most frustrating fish in South Jersey. Definitely one of the best achievements is a big Tautog after a epic battle in the bay.

Black Sea Bass

So many Sea Bass

Lots of action when the Sea Bass arrive. Many small fish fill the bay for an exciting day with the family. Keeper Sea Bass have been caught in the Bay and they fight hard.


Kayaking in Margate NJ

My granddaughter and I rented kayaks from Scott’s and had a great time. The equipment was practically brand new and the young man that helped us couldn’t have been nicer and more helpful. Really made for a super fun outing!

Best Dock in Margate

We love Ray Scott’s!! I’ve been going there since i was a baby, my dad had his boat docked there. For years my husband & I take our children fishing & crabbing on their rental boats. The owner & staff are amazing, always helpful, the kids love to see the turtles & watch the staff clean the fish & crabs we catch. We can’t wait to come back!! Thanks for many years of memories Ray Scott’s

Very friendly attentive service. We felt like we were welcome to join them. We rented 2 kayaks for a hour. The folks there made us feel like we were old friends coming in even though we had never been there before. We are part time residents finding our way around while vacationing here.
