Thanks to the actions of one individual, you are no longer allowed to fish on any of the rocks in Yorktown.Tresspassing tickets will be written from here on out. Another fishing spot bites the dust.:(

Why does it seem that the group as a whole always gets punished for the actions of one a-hole?:mad:

It's getting progressively sadder that this is becoming "par for the course".
QFT. This sucks, because that was my night time spot in December. ON the flip side of that coin, the signs have been up for a while, and they (police) have been looking the other way. It was just a matter of time until someone screwed it up for all of us.

Wake up and smell the coffee buddy. This aint a blue or red issue as this is happening all over the country. Devolpement is outta control and is costing us locations to fish.

Indeed,
and, in addition, those that "live there", therefore it's only for them.

What happened?! please share! no reason why we all can't know!
As Clay stated...due to the disrespect and the wanton acts of 1 individual...a prime spot will be monitered and tickets / citations will be issued if any deviation of the rules and regulations occur. ~NO FISHING ON THE JETTY`


This is a prime exacmple of how 1 bad apple spoils the bunch. Is 1 lure worth expulsion?

The what really doesn't matter, whats done is done. I intended the post to alert my friends, members and lurkers as too what happened so no one gets a ticket. I was still steamed and worded my post a lot stronger than I should have.

Bottom line, we lost another spot so the search for viable, legal fishing spots continues.

i think your right c dog about fishing spots dissapering,its a disgrace,its been happening ever since i was a kid,one spot after another,pretty soon they will tax the air you breath,you can sit there and really belive this all happened because of one individual,but i think its because the masses of individuals,and they used one idiots actoins as an example.im just a jerk at one end of the fishing line waiting for a jerk on the other end.theres to many of ya out there that is the probelem,why do you think i fish the graveyard shift now?

I feel like it does matter, people will look at this post and just say, "oh darn, another spot lost" yet what's to keep someone from making the same mistake over again?

maybe the one lurker you're talking about might see the post and say to themselves, "oh crap that was me, I won't be doing that again"

Well,its not surprising. When I see how some of the spots get left like pig-pens(not meaning to insult our porky buddies)), I wonder what kind of upbringin' some people have or what they could be thinking....disgusting!....the R

Ian, regardless of how many people are fishin', it should never stop you from teaching another youngster to fish. We are not elitist's(sp.?) Someone climbing a fence with spikes on it is an idioit, not to be confused with an aspiring angler.
Wish'd I lived closer to the salt, I'd be fishing the graveyard shift too. More fish available...

I understand your sentiment, but I think it's a lost cause. Some people just don't care. I heard what went down, and it was a blatant case of someone's stupidity ruining it for us all. Fact is, the more people break the rules, the more access we're going to lose. Plain and simple. The R has a good point too. Some of the folks that fished around there were pigs. Lure packags all over the ground, drink bottles, and other general trash. Same deal on the parkway along the creeks. Eventually, the National Park Service is just going to close it off.
