About The Gardiners Bay

About Gardiners Bay, NY

Gardiners Bay lies in between two peninsulas and home to Gardiners Island. The bay connects people from Promised Land and Gardiners Island to Block Island Sound, lying on the eastern part of Long Island. As an arm of the Atlantic Ocean, the waters that pour in are mostly saltwater. Its pristine waters are why many anglers would call Gardiners Bay an angler’s playground.

Many of the locals living in Gardiners Island would tell you the story of how Gardiners Bay played a big role during the American Revolution. They would tell you the story of Captain Kidd and how he buried his treasure near the island to hide it from the British. Maybe also about how 100 British ships lined the shores of the beach during the American Revolutionary War of 1812. 

Gardiners Bay is one of the best places to go harbor fishing. The bay connects itself to three major harbors and one beach: Three Mile Harbor, Acabonack Harbor, Lazy Point's Napeague harbor, and Clearwater beach.

Gardiners Bay Fishing Description

All About Fishing in Gardiners Bay, NY

Because it’s part of the Peconic Estuary, the officials strictly monitor the anglers to preserve the ecosystem of Gardiners Bay. As a saltwater bay, it is home to fish such as striped bass, fluke, bluefish, yellowtail, flounder, blackfish, weakfish, searobin, porgy, and sea skate. Some even say that Gardiners Bay is one of the best places to go porgy fishing.

According to the locals, one of the best hotspots for fishing in Gardiners Bay is a place known as The Ruins. Lying at the northern tip of the bay, The Ruins gives anglers a chance to go deep sea fishing or flounder gigging. But if people venture deeper into the bay along with the place they call the Rip Line, anglers can practice their fly fishing. Because of remnants and debris from the war, many fish such as the striped bass and bluefish make their homes down below.

Being an estuary doesn’t mean it only protects fish. It also protects shellfish and crustaceans that are a must in the fish’s diet. Gardiners Bay is also home to some blue claw crab and a variety of mollusks such as oysters and hard shell clams. Scallops and conchs also enjoy the waters there too.
