Fishing in Sheepshead Bay

  Sheepshead Bay is located in the Rockaway Inlet. It is one of the the most navigable inlets on the East Coast. Manhattan Beach is directly to the south of Sheepshead Bay, with Brighton Beach in the middle and Coney Island to the west. Sheepshead Bay is a wonderful place to dock a boat, beacuse you can get to great fishing in less than 5 minutes. You can also be fishing the deep blue off shore waters in less than thirty minutes. When time is as important issue this is a factor to consider.

  The Sheepshead Bay fishing fleet is comprised of about fifty boats, that are moored to the nine concrete piers along Emmons Avenue. Some of these boats take as many as two hundred passengers on fishing trips. The charge per adult passenger ranges from 24 dollars to 40 dollars. Most boats have a cheaper rate for children and seniors. Boats leave at six, seven, and eight in the morning, and at midnight. The number of party boats working these waters has been in the decline for the last 10 years. Parking is one of the biggest problems that face the customers of the party boats. Plan on getting there a couple hours early so you can aquire a parking spot you dont want to be left standing on the dock.
