  1. Sign says "Night Fishing Only - No Fishing 7 PM to 7 AM - Permit Required" yet the town website says the night fishing hours are are from 9 PM to 7 AM. I just called to clarify the time and I was told that 9 PM is the correct start time and that the sign will be fixed. I also asked if the permit was required to fish or park and I was told it's only needed to park and I was quickly hung up on. http://oysterbaytown.com/departments/parks/beaches/ NIGHT SURF FISHING PERMIT These permits are free for all Town of Oyster Bay residents looking to fish at any Town of Oyster Bay beach between the hours of 9PM and 7AM. A permit can be obtained by mailing in the application or by visiting the Beaches Office. Please bring vehicle registration. (Click here for Night Surf Fishing Application)
  2. Very common when using bunker for bait.
  3. If you pickup a hitch extender you *may* be able to use a standard trailer hitch and open your rear doors. Keep in mind once you extend the hitch (1 foot max) you loose almost 1/2 of the rated weight capacity on the hitch. I've used a hitch extender on both a bike rack and a cargo rack and it has allowed me just enough room to open the rear doors on 2 diff vehicles.
  4. Majority of it is being turned back into natural habitat. My assumption is that perhaps that park is looking to maintain the current percent of developed verses non developed land. If you figure all the natural habitat lost to the new zip line park this about evens out the lost.....
  5. one more thing- I'd be willing to bet these moisture spots on your walls will correlate to window wells or downspout drainage areas. If so that's a good things as chances are you can limit the moisture by making some changes on the outside.
  6. I agree as well as I had the same issue I used drylock on all my basement walls before finishing it- only difference is that my cement walls were never painted- not sure if that makes a difference or not before applying it.
  7. I have a 99 1500 and agree that the brake lines should be checked as I had incidents with rust leaks as well. Otherwise its a great beach vehicle. Sleeps 2 adults without any issues and you can rig up poles up to 11 ft inside the truck along headliner.
  8. Forget the dingy and get a Kayak. Stay away from all the yahoo's on the water with motors. Fish early just before sunrise mon - fri only. Get off the water when you hear the first boat. You will catch fish in that area.
  9. All this nonsense over where to put rods makes me want to hang onto my old suburban forever. Pickups just seem like the worst vehicle to me for transporting rods unless if you have a full cap and even then I'm not to thrilled about leaving my gear outside....
  10. A raised COT if nice since it will also allow you to store items underneath. I have a coleman Trailhead II cot that measures 75 x 30 x 17 that fits great in the back of a Suburban. Need to add a memory foam on top for better support but the space underneath is nice to have.
  11. If the caliper is sticking the rim(s) should get very hot as well after a good drive. That's what happened to me at least but there was no noise, just a hot rim and what smelled like an electrical fire. Did you check the thickness of the pads to confirm your just not hitting the sensors?
  12. "Straps keep the kayak from touching the brand new cap I just bought" - As for another option you may want to get some pipe insulation foam strips from home depot. They come pre-split and all you need to do is measure your roof rack rail length and attach nice and snug with some plastic cable ties (black pipe strips & black plastic ties work well together). Then use the same straps you have to secure the kayak to the rails. Having those straps the way you do now may generate a ton of noise on the highway but I'm guessing you need it this way to load sideways? If you load from the rear to front you should be able to slide on top of the rear foam strip but perhaps not depending on your situation..... Good luck!
  13. Cut that in half and you have a nice jack stand stand platform as well....
  14. Appreciate all the responses, going to further digest this and weigh out my options. May just stick with warm water conditions for now. Thanks again.
  15. I didn't even realize till now there was both a dry and wet suit option. I do have 2 pairs of waders already that I use for surf fishing, 1 is heavy neoprene and the other is light fabric type material. I always figured waders would be to dangerous if I fell in and they filled with water but is that fear unwarranted when coupled with a life jacket?
