Default Beach driving advice

Happy new year folks, I hope your holidays were enjoyable.

I am looking for advice on beach driving for fishing, specifically where I can go and what I should know. I've been surf fishing for a few years now but have always walked on. I have normally only been able to get out for a few hours at a time due to work. I recently started at a new company with a fantastic schedule and a raise (no more 90 hour work weeks!) With that I will be able to go out more often and I'm interested in expanding my fishing. I've been sticking with Sandy Hook due to proximity to me in Northeast Pennsylvania, and Staten Island because thats where my wife is from and that is where she likes to go when she joins me.

If anyone can point me in the right direction or provide any form of advice that would be greatly appreciated. I'm not looking to blow up any spots, just a general direction. I know beach permits aren't cheap. I have a 4wd truck so I'm OK with the vehicle (and I'm purchasing a new fishing kayak this year too, could use someone to show me the ropes when it comes to fishing the bays from a kayak, I pay in beer and entertainment).

Thank you in advance and good luck this year!

The best part of this site isn't the forums, it's all the articles and info already published!

Don't make 90 degree turns and never park below the high tide line.

You want to head to IBSP or if you are inclined, hit LI.

Forget about Brigantine.

LBI is ok, but I don't think they have much year round, except Holgate.

Check out the access, and review the reports and make a decision.

When I retire, I plan on getting the IBSP pass, or perhaps Corson's pass... in addition to Brigantine. Hopefully I can use them more.

Bob,

Do you know if the LIBBA has a similar list of access locations/info?

Second half of this page. They used to have more of a list. Maybe it is just in their newsletter.
