SHEEPSHEAD BAY IS NYC'S OFFICIAL " HISTORIC FISHING VILLAGE." HOME TO THE FAMED PARTY BOAT FISHING FLEET. YEAR-ROUND ACTIVITY CAN BE FOUND HERE...From Seafood Restaurant's To Party Fishing Boats, Piers To Fish Off Of; To Both Bernies, And Stella Maris Bait Shops; To The Annual Blessing Of The Fleet. SHEEPSHEAD BAY Has It All!. Take The Belt Parkway And Exit At Southbound Knapp Street, Then Make A Sharp Right On To Emmons Avenue. By Train Take The IND "Q" To The "Sheepshead Bay" Station. Ride The Front Southbound Coney-Island Train Cars, Exit There,  turn left and you will see at footbridge that corsses over The Belt Parkway.  If that Subway Exit Is Closed, exit at Sheepshead Bay road, turn right, walk Southbound On Sheepshead Bay Road (past all the stores and restaurants) till ya see El Grecco Diner and you are at the Bay shoreline.  It's That Easy To Get There. If Ya Get Lost, Just Ask Anyone Where "The Bay Is!."
 
(Feb. 2007)- The Landmark LUNDY BROS. RESTAURANT IS AGAIN CLOSED!. What's Become Of The Once Great Bay Seafood Mecca ???. Folks Are Dining At Places On City Island in the Bronx these days.
 
Enough alrady with the Waterfront Condos along the Bay shoreline, Thank You!. 
 
Generally Speaking, Most Shorline Anglers Fish The Bay At KNAPP STREET, And The Manhattan Beach Seawall Side Of The Bay!. Read The Footnotes, Etc. Under Each "Hot Spot"Listing Below To Understand Why!.
 
The Origins Of The Name "Sheepshead Bay" - It Is Said That Back In The 1640's, A Fish They Named  The "Sheepshead", Existed In And Roamed The Bay.  It Later Became Extinct.  The word "Bay" is of Course just what It Is.  This Bay Flows Into And Out Of Jamaica Bay Inlet on its east end near Knapp Street. Just across the water from that excat spot is Kingsborough Community College.  BTW- "Thank God" That Casino Boat operation is "Gone."

June 2008-  The NEW 'Ocean Avenue Footbridge' that crosses The Bay is Opened.  For years anglers had been fishing from the Old one which is gone.  The sad news is that "fishing is no longer permitted from this one too, period!."  We have purposely Deleted a Photo Of The Famed Footbridge As A Fishing Spot from Our Website as a result.
 
 
10/8/09- Manhattan Beach side Seawall reconstruction in Sheepshead Bay is completed. Signs now posted stating "No Eel Or Shellfish Fishing!." Plus over the past 3 weeks some friends went to the bay to snag bunker and said "It Is Dead!." Nothing caught!.

KNAPP STREET SEAWALL- (C) 2000 M.T.WRIGHT

The SEAWALL AT KNAPP STREET Is Located At The Eastend Of Emmons Avenue, Block West Of Knapp Street, The Belt Parkway. It Is The Area With A Large Fece Around It, Just Opposite The Windjammer Motel, And The Old Casino Boat Pier. Basically This Once Was A Dock Used By NYC DEP's Tanker Ships, Whereby Raw Sewage Was Loaded From The Nearby Sewage Treatment Plant, Through A Large Outlet Pipe That Was Then Rigged To The Tanker Ship. This Spot Is The Bay's Most Popular. Year-Round Fishing Spot At The Inlet To Both Jamaica And Sheepshead Bay's. This Spot In On NYC Government Property. It Is Believed That NYC DPR  Has Jurisdiction Over It. National Park Service Police Are Known To Stop By There On Occassion, Though It Is Not A "GWNRA" Location.

Fellow Anglers!. If You Know Of Any Other Brooklyn Spots That We Have Not Listed Here, Please Tel Us About It. Better Still, Send Us A .jpeg Photo(s), And Detailed Information On The Location. Tell Us About Your Personal Fishing Experience There. I Agree, We All Have Our Private, Hidden, Secret Spots That We Keep To Ourselves, But Seriously, Please Share Them With The Rest Of Us. Thank You.

AVOID THIS AREA:

You Seriously DO NOT Want To Fish In SPRING CREEK, In The General Area Of The GATEWAY SHOPPING PLAZA (Belt Pkwy. & Erskine St.).  Also Avoid Fountain Avenue to the Dead End opp. The Belt Parkway---  Known Dumping ground for dead bodies as well. Remember, There Is An Old Sanitation Landfill There.  a-k-a "Toxic" Stuff.  Man Avoid It. Let them build their proposed public access to it as they are at Great Kills in Staten Island. "You Build It, People Won't Come!."
And We Applaud NYS DEC, NYC DEP, and The Army Corp Of Engineers, For Reclaiming The Area, Renovating The Shoreline Around The Landfill. But Again We Say, "If You Don''t Wanna Glow Green" Some Day In The Future, "DO NOT FISH THERE, DO NOT EAT FISH" Taken From That Area.

Under NYS DEC Regulations "SHELL FISHING IS ILLEGAL IN JAMAICA BAY!."
