I meant how much did you actually get to go out on the beach last year at Smith's Point? I know the beach was closed for most of the summer due to storms washing away the beach and the Pipping Plovers nesting.

Thanks, sold the TJ and picked this up a couple of months ago. It was pouring the whole ride out and the whole ride home, on the beach it was only misty drizzle.
Yesterday I remember a couple breaks in between the monsoons lol.
Today is windy but at least sunny out..what it's Easter?..come on I can't win.
The Misses had a whole bunch of family things lined up for today so time on the forum is limited and time out fishing is non existent this weekend.
A couple of my full size friends did go out and said the beach was over run with **JEEP NAZIS** as they refer to us. I laughed and said remember THIS (Me) Jeep Nazi pulled your big honky truck out of a huge mud pit last year .....remember.....remember that forever.
He didn't like my response and went on to bash Jeep as a whole..it's all good. I think they all suffer from Napoleon Syndrome anyway,
Alright Gentlemen, I will see you guys out there soon.
This is a dead thread but I'm unsure where else to put this. I want to get a beach pass for this summer but dont know what I need. I live about an hour away from the island so is it even worth taking the trip down there for it? What kinds of passes will I need to buy. I've read about green keys and empire passes...can someone clear all of this up for me? thanks
dont mean to offend the fishermen, however i dont agree with 4x4 access as "fishing only" I have permits for cape cod (nauset and national seashore) all access, you want to fish, great...you can swim, surf or just hang out...the beaches are for all to enjoy, they need to drop the 'fishing only' and open it up.
I been reading this post and maybe this last experience will shed some light as to why they seperate the beaches.
I went to Oak Beach in mid July it was crowded with plenty of dissrespectful people. People swimming in the fishing area (how the hell u suppose catch something); walking their dogs illegally and not cleaning up after them; leaving garbage around; one moron was flying his kite next my Jeep and it landed on the vehicle next to me roof. (that guy was angry). In the meantime, I was staring him down.
What takes the cake was when I reeled in my line for just a moment to grab a water. My rod still had my bait and hook on it, and little 3 year old girl walking with her father just decides to run to my rod and grab the bait with hook in it. I yelled at her immediately, her father just sat there like a friggen moron and she ran away from it. I really wanted to kick her father's teeth in. He had time to say "No"
On my way out that day, a group of people were blocking the trail and playing some game with garbage barrels right in the middle of the trail. I crept real slow and thier all giving me dirty looks and one guy was sitting on his chair right on the trail yelling or something. So when my rear end got past him, I accidentally gave it too much gas LOL! Oh Well!
To answer question Skiquattro, and not to offend you, with so many people in LI and being that LI is known fishing area; seperating the beach up in like categories, makes it so everyone could be safe and really enjoy thier passtime and hobbies without anyone else getting hurt.
I often find that Burma road at smiths point has many little areas to pull off, i like to consider these private beaches, great for a day with just you and the gf if ya catch my drift
plus burma road is a nice little change of wheeling at the beach
