I hear that by the airport is awesomely productive. It is estuary marshland. back there.
I may take a trip there and scout it out and give you a heads up. I wish I could be of more help. Maybe Zim has fished it. It is a pretty large area with lots of access. and tidal situations. Breezy point is rougher surf.
20 sq mi SW Long Island, SE N.Y., separated from the Atlantic Ocean by Rockaway Peninsula; the Rockaway Inlet links it to the sea. The shallow bay has many islands, and its shores are generally marshy. Nearly all of the bay is in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, New York. John F. Kennedy International Airport also extends into the bay. This area offers excellent access to flats and jetties.
Favorite fishing spots in the Jamaica Bay area include Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn; Canarsie Pier in Jamaica, Queens; and Breezy Point in Rockaway, New York.
