__________________________________________
Frequently Asked Question: "JUST HOW DEEP IS JAMAICA BAY ?" - 
Depending on the tide, Jamaica Bay's depth ranges from just a few inches to over sixty feet, with most of the main channels ranging from 25 to 45 feet deep. The smaller channels in the center of the Bay range from 10 to 20 feet.  Some of the deepest places in the bay are known as Borrow Pits, where bay bottom was excavated to create fill for Kennedy Airport and other developments. Pits at Grassy Bay have been measured at 46 feet, Norton Basin at 51 feet, and Little Bay at 64 feet. The rest of the bay consists of shallow sandy bottom waters and salt marshes, some of which are exposed at low tide, but covered by several inches to several feet of water at high tide.

***Our Fishing Future: Proposed New Fishing Pier For The Red Hook Community. Proposed Open- Public Access Waterfront Space, In Locations From Greenpoint To Atlantic Avenue.
 
'Governors Island' Should be made "Accessible" To Recreational Saltwater Anglers.  We strongly Urge City/State officials To designate Spots on The Island for just that purpose.

I Welcome You All To The "First And Original Online" NYC Fishing Photo-Guide, Focusing On Recreational Dock, Pier, Seawall, Shoreline and Surfcast Saltwater Fishing Here In Brooklyn!.  We Feature Only "The Most Popular  Hot Spots"  Here In Brooklyn, NY, USA!.  So Come To Brooklyn And Give These Featured Spots and Our Waters A Try.   This Is The "Most Difinite And Popular Guide" Of Its Kind, As Per Our Many Past  And Recent Site Visitors!. They Use It As Their Guide To Some Great  Land-Based And Shoreline Saltwater Fishing Here In Kings County, NY..


Here In New York City, We Are Lucky That Each Of The Five Borough's Are In Many Respects Seperated And/Or Surrounded By Much Saltwater. Brooklyn Especially.

Whether It Be The Atlantic, Jamaica Bay, An Inlet, Or Some Beach Or Back-Bay Area. And We Have The Best Fishing Charter And Party Boats Fleet On The Planet, In Both Gerritsen Beach, And In Sheepshead Bay.


ICE FISHING Is NOT Permitted Directly Out On NYC DPR Parks Lakes and Ponds. No Temp. Or Full-Time Setup's, No Shelters, Period!. While The Ice On NYC Parks Lakes And Ponds May Appear Thick And Safe To Walk On, It Is Indeed NOT. "STAY OFF The ICE"...You Could Take A Fatal Fall Into The Frozen Water. If You Have A Desire To Do Some Ice Fishing, We Recommend You Take A Ride North, To Fish The "Ramapo River" (NY Side) For Instance. Location: Route 17 In Sloatsburg, NY (Rockland County).

Many Of Our Elected Officials, Especially The Brooklyn Delegation, Have Great Plans Laid-Out To Some Day Make Much Of Brooklyn's Shoreline MORE Recreational. We Hope Their Plans Include New State-Of-The-Art Fishing Piers As Well. The Southern Tip Of Bay Parkway At Ceasars Bay Is A Great Spot For Such A Pier!. So Are A Great Many Waterfront Spots Along The Proposed Future "Brooklyn Greenway", From Greenpoint To Sunset Park. It Is Imperative That All Recreational Anglers Here In Brooklyn E-Mail, Telephone, Write Each Of Our City And State Elected Officials(Esp. The Brooklyn City Council And State Assembly Delegation), Urban Planners, Local Community Boards, And Insist That "Any Future Open Brooklyn Waterfront Parks And Spaces MUST Include Recreational Fishing Piers". "The Canarsie Pier, And The 69th. Street Pier Alone Just Will Not Suffice Such A Need!...We Require Others In Addition To Them!."


I Am Quite Positive That Like Many Other Saltwater Anglers, You Too Will Frequently Use This Guide To Plan Your Day Of Enjoying Some Great "Brooklyn Land-Based And Shoreline Saltwater Fishing!." Should You Be On A "Salt Free Diet", Please Visit Our Sister "NYC PARK ANGLERS GUIDE" To Recreational Freshwater Fishing In Urban NYC Parks!.
   Please Excuse Us If Our Gaelic Language Translations May Be Incorrect...Corrections Appreciated...Slainte!.
Tight Lines To You All...See Ya On The Beaches, Party Boats, Piers, In Our NYC Parks, Or On The Brooklyn Shorelines!...
