We assumed he was referring to Palatine Lake in Pittsgrove (Salem County). Definitely private, definitely no public boat ramp.Yes there is a boat ramp, and lots of nice bass, residents are not iffy, I guess someone did not want to share the llake, lol boat ramp is just past the falls, can not miss it, good luck.:thumbsup:
That's the one.Isn't that the lake where they have "NO FISHING" and "PRIVATE LAKE" signs 20 feet into the water all along the lake front?
Well, the word is... you can't boat on the lake or fish on the lake or fish from the shoreline along Olivet Road unless you have permission from the Palatine Lake homeowners association. NJ Fish & Wildlife will enforce all of that. (Don't shoot the messenger; I'm just passing along the info. I don't agree with it.)That's the one.
And I believe that NJ Fish & Wildlife enforces the Palatine homeowners association's claim to ownership of the entire lake and requirement to have a sticker on your boat if on the lake.
I'm trying to get clarification of exactly what they enforce as far as fishing on the lake and fishing from the shoreline along Olivet Road.
I was told that, unlike the usual situation where the township owns the shoulder of the road (like 25 feet from the center line), in this case the homeowners association owns the shoulder of the road. Some special provision in the deed from a long time ago.There have been cases taken to court over these issues and I'm not sure who has won. There is a certain footage from the center line of the road that is eat her county or township property.I believe its twenty feet. And iI'm sure you can't own flowing g water. But the association will hound you your decision. Whether its worth the aggrevation. When I was a kid and nobody would prosecute me I would give those people all kinds of lip. I don't really care now there are better places.
