NY Beach access? I have a major problem (LONG!)
Ok I know the law here and I know I broke it. But please read anyway.
Theres a spot I have been fishing for 20 years. Since I was a kid. I have yet to leave a piece of trash. I usually bring more trash out then I come in with. It used to be an old beach club. Now there is a private community there. Gates and all. (like they need it) But whatever. Theres like maybe 8 houses in there. I have spoken to people in 5 of the 8 houses throughout my travels and 4 of them have been really cool. 2-3 of the houses are empty. Number 5 today was a real jerk. Now I understand it is a private community. And I was wrong. But the guys a terd anyway. Lets explain what we do here
We go to the end of the street. Empty lot.. Supposedly Mariano Rivera owns it.
We then walk to the end of a very wide, stable jetty. Then we fish. This spot produces large stripers every day, night all year long. Like no other spot. Now im sure some of you western sound guys are saying hey Ive seen you over there before.
So lets get to the terd nugget I met today who walks out to the jetty and asks if I know anyone in his ghey little community. I said yes my friend Paolo from Brasil is renting a house here. I spent a day teaching this kid to fish and got him a keeper bass. He loves me and fishing and he is indeed renting a house there till the 3rd of June. So I guess that gets me by the gate legally. Then the guy starts in someone with a tattoo on his back was out here and I hate tattoos and I don’t know why anyone would get them and what kind of people they are.. whatever. Meanwhile they pray to ufcking rats in his country. But regardless he says this guy stole his dingy. Well I have a tattoo on my back but I had my shirt on. I didn’t steal his ufcking dingy. I have a boat. This spot is just THAT good. I tell him listen I’ve been coming here 20 years. I cant sue if I get hurt. I saw the sign. I don’t leave trash. We don’t party. No noise. No beers. Usually. I said I’ll even sign a waiver. Please don’t take this spot away from me you have no idea how important this it to me waah waah. I know. But really. I grew up fishing this spot with my bro.
HE says F you I don’t care if you’ve been fishing here for 50 years (im 30…. Tard) if I see you down here again ill call the police blah blah. So my friend says listen we gotta work this out were not bums were execs too (hes an electrician but whatever. Good respectful people here) I tell him I’ve got a lawyer in my office ill have him draw up a waiver waah waah. Just lets work it out. No way. Someone stole my dinghy. Dumbass probably didn’t tie it up right.
So im done crying. But I want to know how I can legally fish there. I know I can not walk down the road without an invite from someone who lives there. Paolo leaves Monday. But if I am on the jetty and the cops come its gonna suck. I figure high tide line is where his property starts (if he owns the jetty) so if I get over there with a kayak or some shit he cant say anything.. Can someone shed some light on beach access laws in NY? Please. I cant fish anywhere else right now. And it is DANGEROUS to get a boat in there. Not saying skiffs cant get in. But my boat cant. And neither can either of your guys.. haha.
And does he really own the frickin jetty? I mean he launched his stupid dinghy to go to his cheap ass sailboat so I guess he pays for access. But. . If I can get out there I can fish no?
Someone said cut the line to his sailboat one night but im guessing that’s a felony and shit they used to kill you for that back in the days and im not vengeful so.. The guys just a nasty terd.
