    Default Sandy Hook closed?

    i went to fluke sandy hook yesterday from the beach, and started at north beach. i made the walk to the water, and then when i tried to walk north to the false hook it appeared to be fenced off. while the fence did not go all way down to the tide line, it said no admittance beyond this point, so i decided to play it safe. I then took the hike to the bayside of the hook thinking i could access it from there, but when i tried to walk there, same deal. you can easily walk passed the fence without going through, but i didn't want to risk a fine. does anyone here know if the false hook is accessible? or do i need to wait for the fence to be removed?

    Although I dont fish the Hook directly, I do recall from years past something about birds nest/mating causing some areas to close. I could be completely wrong though, but I think I recall that.

    Pipiing Plover nesting on the beach are protected. They are protected so they can grow old enough to make the flight south and shot by the hunter in South America

    Forgot about that. I wonder what happened to all them during the storm? When I used to work up there the racoons were are major problem.

    yes... the walk to false hook from north beach is closed due to fox bait...er, piping plovers.

    the fisherman's trail out to the rip is open
