Each Fire Island National Seashore permit has its own stipulations and requirements. With a Fire Island National Seashore Sportsman's Vehicle Permit, $50/vehicle, offroad recreational vehicles are permitted to drive at certain times on designated portions of Fire Island National Seashore's beach as a means of access for fishing or hunting. Smith Point County Park and Robert Moses State Park have separate recreational use permits. Sportsman's recreational driving is restricted to the beach along the Atlantic Ocean on the south shore of Fire Island, west of the Wilderness Visitor Center and east of Long Cove between the water's edge and 20 feet seaward of the beach grass. Vehicles may not cross dunes, damage vegetation, or enter the designated wilderness area. Permits for recreational driving may be purchased at the Otis Pike Fire Island Wilderness Visitor Center on or after September 1, for use between September 15 and December 31. However, the beach may be closed to driving at any time due to high water or other adverse conditions on the beach. In 2005, no recreational driving permits were issued due to an overwash near Old Inlet. In 2009, the sale of permits was delayed due to beach conditions. For latest information, call the Wilderness Visitor Center at 631-281-3010. Current rates for a Sportsman's Vehicle Permit are $50/year.

I'll happily buy him a beer at the next Hooter's gathering
  4. OK.. Not sure if this has been posted before, but I would love to see the different variations in belts. I have seen so many belts out there with straps, loops, bags, clips, holsters, pliers, bogas, etc..... Some are plain and some require a set of wheels!! Does anyone use suspenders? If you have a photo of your setup, please post away. I am curious.. Thanks..
  5. I figured it would be cool to have a separate thread to show what everyone is catching around Long Island. There are a few threads that have random posts regarding this, but I would like to see everything in one thread. I am not only looking for your best and biggest, but anything you caught on Long Island. I am looking forward to adding some nice Trigger photos this summer as well! Photos don't have to be recent, but do have to be from the area. Freshwater is also welcome! Here's my first addition: Caught a couple of weeks ago on the South Shore..
  6. Vezco 6-Rod Cooler rack with 3 coolers. The big cooler is 94 quart. This rack is in perfect condition. No dents or cracks. The big cooler has brand new hardware. Also included are 4 brand new sand spikes (approx. 5' long) and mounts for the sand spikes (if you want to have them welded to the cooler rack to hold the sand spikes). Also comes with locking cable and 2 locks. The bottom part is powder coated and in great condition, just minimal surface rust in a couple of spots. This rack bolts through the holes on the receiver so it does not wobble at all. I am not looking to deliver this so local sales work for me. I am located on Long Island in East Moriches and work in Hauppauge, so either of those locations work for me. $400 for everything.
  7. So much going around, I just thought I would start a collection.
  8. I believe so. There may be a few restaurant lots you can park in, but that probably it. Typical NS.
  9. I’ve been getting the Southold permit for years, never saw any beach driving. I believe I payed $35 or $40 last year, but that’s for seasonal guests. It’s not only for parking lots. Most dead end streets require it as well. There is also another sticker for the historical parks, which is free for residents in the actual town. I get both. Its a hike for me from East Moriches, but sometimes pays off.
  10. The monk parakeets can be seen on Montauk Hwy from Copaigue to Lindenhust as well. Mostly along the north side of the road on poles with transformers. Huge nests!
  11. I’ve been seeing them for years in Queens around the traffic cabinets.
  12. Lipping them is fine. The tails make some nice fish tacos, or fried nuggets dipped in cocktail or tartar sauce.
  13. I also shared that on FB. I hope they catch the scumbag!
  14. I'm still determined to get a copy of his logs!
  15. ^^ This guy knows things!
  16. Its not uncommon. Signs never stopped anyone from doing anything. I could care less. I'm more concerned with the a-holes trashing the beaches. I just focus on the water and let them do what they want.
  17. Read this:
  18. At least we got the "Night Fishing Permit" question cleared up. Now on to more important topics!
  19. This is a classic in here!
  20. I've never heard of a municipality that required a night permit to fish during the day.
