Thumbs up Re: Plum Island beach buggy permit

Congrats on the keeper Plum. How did Rick do?

Nice to hear night walk-ons are now permited. Which lots are open?

Might have to make the drive down real soon, get the permit, and take a bath in DEET.

Rick caught the keeper of course.
I got a 26 right off the bat and then little ones.
Rick caught the keeper just as the tide turned to come in,
Worms of course.
More little ones.
The breeze just flat out died around 11 PM.
It was hot but I was completely covered except face and hands which were
chewed on mercilessly.
Rick hooked on the next morning to something big. Fought it for a while and it broke off.
AAAAAAAAAhh the ones that get away huh?
Still only 1, 6 and 7 open.
Hoping for some wind this weekend.
Toque just get your drive on, you don't need the walk on.

Plum,
If you are involved with clean up, you might want to suggest to the powers that be what Togue suggested. Low risk prisoners to do the clean up. They do that at IBSP every spring, and seems to work. Bring a busload in everyday for a week or two before Memorial day, the inmates pile the stuff on the beach and load it into trucks, and the state carts it away. If it works here, why not there? But dealing with the government, ya might want to remind them to use low risk for escape inmates...

Great idea Rags, but when the floods happened we had all kinds of volunteers, prisoners,National Guard, civilians etc.
They cleaned all of PI except the refuge.
They weren't allowed on because it was closed for Plovers.
It seems pretty silly to ask them to come back, who knows, maybe they will.
But at the time we were in State of Emergency.
Most of that stuff in the pic is now washed up closer to the dunes and I am told that the further down you go it is not as bad.
It will all work out, I am sure.
Most of the beach is still closed even to walk ons because of the birds.
As soon as they open it up I'll be out there cleaning it up.

Hey ya know what?

I am tired of hearing "we can't fight the Government"
Why the hell not?
They are wrong as far as I am concerned.
We have met the bird quota.
It all comes down to money now and who has the most..
The bird people have the MOSTEST!
We really don't have the numbers in the MBBA that the birders do.
So until we get support it is just us shoveling you know what against the tide.
The next best thing is manpower.
But I am preaching to the choir.
I just do what I can.
I set my sites on September and roll with it.

I just got my ORV pass last friday and the ranger told me Sept.1st we will be aloud on. and that lots 1,6,&7 are open if you buy you ORV pass it allows you to walk on for the month of August If there is a clean up I will come with my F-350 and make as many loads off the beach as needed. I can't wait to have my Camper out there this year. Does anyone know where the other camper dump there waste when they leave the beach?

Hi Bob I am sorry.
It IS Salsbury State Park Campground.
Our MBBA Handbook will tell you all of the dump locations for the beaches we can access.

I have an extra. If you don't find it by the time I see you it's yours.
It also has directions to all the beaches and comes in handy for the spring clean ups.
They haven't changed much so even an old one will help you.
But just ask anyway and someone will help.
