Crabbing is one of my favorite hobbies and is a favorite pastime of many visitors to Seaside Heights. Put a piece of bunker or chicken (I’ve seen people use hot dogs too) on the end of a line or in a crab pot and wait patiently to catch the scavenging Barnegat Bay blue claws!
The next view shows the public dock that was located between Hamilton and Franklin Avenues before the State’s highway project filled in most of the area that is seen in the postcard. The name “J.S. Tunney” is visible on the bottom left side of the postcard. “J.S. Tunney,” of course, was former Mayor J. Stanley Tunney.
The next view shows the old bridge behind the crabbing boats.
