However, I do have a question on topic. Can one still park in a lot at these beaches and make the long walks to fish ? ( I have parked in the westernmost lot of RM and walked to the jetty in the past.) If one fishes the Jones Beach West End jetty its a mile walk through the mosquitoes as well.
Per my conversation with a park ranger last week , smith point will be closed until September! Nuke the f-ing birds already , they have more rights then we do!
Would they close it if it were a golf course?
Dont tell the coppers but there were piping plovers all over sore thumb..... maybe sore thumb is the ghetto of piping plover living and therefore doesnt warrant the same protections as the ocean front?
