Access to the rip area is closed. Ranger told us that they have been dredging and therefore standing at the water's edge is unsafe. Apparently it will be closed for at least two more weeks. See you in the spring gentlemen....

The last lot is closed, starting where the pavement ends and the dirt area begins. Is that K lot? You can park just before it in the last paved lot on the right and walk on to North Beach, but canly head so far towards the end before you have to stop.

Technically, I suppose, its the false hook based on what the ranger said.

Silly question, but why is it called a false hook. I tried searching for the meaning of this but nothing really came up for me.

Simply because it gives you the false impression that this point is the tip of the hook...The rips are the northern point of SH..

Nah................the Hook stemming from the bay side.....the Fasle Hook is actually at the bottom of the bend.....on the ocean side would be the Sandy Hook Channel.

I heard the Hook started getting productive later the year, but its was mostly dead from August - October. We fished it hard, and aside from the occasional short, skate, or blue, caught nothing - even during heavy winds when bunker were pressed up at the false rip. We speculated hurricane Irene did some serious underwater restructuring that had a pretty big impact on productivity.

That said, I'm guessing the dredging has nothing to do this and this has more to do with something else (like bridge maintenance)?

False hook is where the boat guys without brains think they can cut across the hook.

Typical closing at the hook...seems to happen nevery year...some area is closed off to the fisherman...but they still will happily take your $50 fishing permit fee...waiting to see if that will be going up.
