Fishing Banned at Shoreham Beach
Posted in the Sound Beach Forum

The town of Brookhaven has banned fishing at Shoreham Beach. People have been fishing at this beach for years. After labor day, they closed the beach to EVERYONE, but after some outcry the beach was reopened. Fishing is still banned there. The town board is doing the bidding of some local shore front residents who are trying to turn public beaches into private beaches.
Brookhaven residents pay incredibly high taxes for use of public parks, beaches, etc , and are now being denied access to these beaches. The Town of Brookhaven has 153 miles of coastline and a population of 448,519 with only 14 areas to go fishing legally.
In my opinion, these actions by the town board are illegial and only serve a select few , not all the residents of Brookhaven.
Many groups are now fighting this ban , but the town will not budge.
There is an on-line petition on this issue. If you care about your rights, whether you are a fisherman or not, please sign the petition and spread the word. We can not let this action by the town board stand.
