Anyone ever fish by the Coast Guard Station? Can you fish there or just the other side?

there isn't much life there but you can fish there if you'd want to.
At least you could years ago. This was back long before they made the bridge a wet land conservation project and used funds to pave a parking lot and put in a boat ramp and then charge fees to use an area that used to be free.

We all know nothing says wetland conservation like asphalt and a boat ramp.

As far as fishing on the north side, It's shallow and limited structure other than the bridge.
I've dove their twice and didn't see a fraction of the amount of life as I have at the South side of the bridge.

Yeah, I've fished the south side....I've seen some good action and some not so good.

I've also fished down by the inlet on the dock next to Oakland's. There's some good fishing there....when the tide is moving one way or the other the fish come around that corner either coming into the bay or going out depending on the direction of the bait.

It's my favorite beach dive on Long island.
Spearfishing has been very productive there.
In late summer, I've even caught tropical salt water fish with a net for my aquarium.
Great site.
By the Coast guard station, not so much.

For a beach dive, it's unbeatable.

From the water, it's very fertile fishing under the old bridge piers and around the new bridge structure.

From the south side on land on the old bridge structure, it can be ok but you have to get the tides right.

There is no more suitable fishing on the north side since the old bridge pier has been closed (due to Sandy damage).

From shore you are much better off fishing off the inlet from the rock jetties, or just go off the ocean beach.

(Striped bass season opens April 15, coming soon!!)
