Tied with Atlantic City Reef for size at 4 square miles, and one of the two oldest of the artificial bottom layouts, Axel Carlson Reef is second only to the Cape May Reef (4.5 square miles) for size. It is rife with structure, the majority of which is rock, and is a magnet for sea bass, fluke and blackfish.

It’s the sea bass in particular that find the Axel Carlson hospitable, with the resulting box-filling angling opportunities drawing an armada when the seasonal segments are open and the limit is reasonable.
