Re: Never done this before
My family goes to the Crest also, and unfortunately I have not found a really good spot on the beach. If you can stand the walk, the Cape May jetty at the south end of Diamond Beach is good, but you have to walk through a bird sanctuary to get to it. North Wildwood is a little better, too. The last time I was in the Crest, in October guys were driving up and down the beach hitting the pipe outlets with lures. Never tried that, but I will at some point this year. Good luck and maybe we will run into each other sometime.
