signed,  just this past year land that was given to the state as open space forever by the deceased on the ct river was traded for some ledge in the middle of nowhere to a commercial developer



these things are happening at an alarming rate and before we know it the areas we'll be allowed access to surf fish will look like the rail of a party boatsoapbox.gif



sorry,  these things just eat at me!

Something I came across this morning. It seems that all hope isn't lost...but don't give up just yet, KEEP SIGNING THE PETITION!!

 

JONES INTRODUCES BILL TO RESTORE ACCESS TO CAPE HATTERAS NATIONAL SEASHORE RECREATIONAL AREA

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Congressman Walter B. Jones (R-NC) introduced H.R. 4094, legislation that would restore reasonable pedestrian and motorized access to the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Recreational Area. The bill would overturn a final rule implemented by the National Park Service (NPS) two weeks ago, as well as the 2008 U.S. District court approved Consent Decree. Both the Rule and the Consent Decree excessively restrict human access to the Recreational Area. The bill would reinstitute the Park Service’s 2007 Interim Management Strategy (IMS) to govern visitor access and species protection in the Recreational Area. The Interim Strategy was backed up by a 113-page Biological Opinion issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service which found that it would not jeopardize the species of concern, namely piping plover and sea turtles. H.R. 4094 has been referred to the House Natural Resources Committee for further consideration.

 

“The federal government needs to remember that Cape Hatteras was established to be a recreational area for the American people,” said Congressman Jones. “But taxpayers can’t recreate without access to the beach. The goal of management ought to be a balanced approach between visitor access and species protection. The Final Rule falls short of that goal. The Interim Strategy comes much closer to hitting the target.”

Look what happen on Cape Cod... The NPS said they were going to close the beach in some areas to orv access... If they close one area... the rest will go too!!! Our beach here was recognized by JFK to be used foe fishing, fowling, recreation etc etc.... didn't matter!!!   Well we started a group



"Citizens Concerned for Sea Coast Management"  We did all sorts of things to keep the beaches open!  We had a rally 4th of July weekend where all the buggy people lined up and took a really slow ride down rt 6 to herring cove!   My dad and a group went to Washington to try and fight the problem... they found out to make it happen you need to lobby and have A LOT OF MONEY!!!!    MONEY TALKS!!!~   What became of the time and effort of a lot of people... Mr. Olson... the Park Supervisor on the Cape ended up being transferred!!!!  Miles of the best Striper Beach God ever made is OFF LIMITS to buggy use... Try walking 5  to 10 miles with whats needed to catch these great fish...



Good luck with the never ending battle!



 



Being a surf fishermen and not having access... makes what we live for Very Hard!
