Carteret also has a fishing pier. Technically it is probably considered the Arthur Kill not Raritan Bay. You can and will catch fish there.

The answer is yes. We don’t really talk spots on this site. There’s enough info here to get you started. Go out there and hit it.

Best is usually at night.  You can visit all of them in one afternoon to see what the water looks like, depth, structure parking etc.   Then start with what looks best for how you fish.

 

Tide and wind can make one place great or totally worthless so visit each on different tide cycles and wind conditions to get a good "feel"

 

Fishing is work if you want to catch and time on the water is the only way to learn

Isn't Keansburgs the longest? Most of your selections are neighbors or very close, depends where the fish swim that night. I'm not a Bayshore hunter, but I've caught bass in 4 of the 6 locations you provided, shows there are fish to catch in those waters most months of the year.

About a mile from the VZ Bridge Staten Island has a nice public pier. As to longest that would be the Navy's Pier in Earl about 2 miles long although axcess is limited.
