just drive up to the base and say..."allah akbar...i have da bomb....let me fish on beach you infidel".......lol..........nah dude...i hear all you have to do is drive up and ask the guards...prob will have to prove your a citizen for atleast....
Stop by the guardhouse at the 88th street entrance. Show ID. They will wave you on to another booth where the guard will write a day pass. I've been down at 6 in the morning and 9 at night without problem. Last Thursday, my brother and I show up just after sunset and a pimply faced 18-year-old with an automatic weapon turned us away. He said, "No fishing after dark!" Orders are orders... Other than that, I've never had a problem getting on the base.
FYI, they are looking into making a license to fish fort story. it would be a license that would be issued on post and there would be some sort of fee to purchase license. not sure when or if it will go through (they are going over the legality of it), but i'll post if anything happens. if it does go through, i doubt it will be any time before this summer as it is low on the priority list right now.
