The Town of Brookhaven is co-sponsoring this saltwater fishing clinic with DEC. As the summer winds down, come out and join us for some snapper fishing and crabbing. Loner rods and free fishing bait will be provided. This clinic will focus on both snapper fishing & crab fishing techniques, fish biology and stewardship. Crabbing participants are encouraged to bring an uncooked package of chicken (drumsticks/legs work well), as event supply may be limited.

Important items to bring: string, crab net, crab trap, and a bucket

Anglers may certainly bring their own saltwater fishing gear. There will be limited crab traps and nets to borrow if needed.

Location: Corey Beach, Blue Point, NY

Directions: I-495 (LIE) to exit 62. Take Nicholls Road south to the end. Make a left onto Montauk Hwy. Make a right onto Atlantic Avenue. Make another right onto Middle Road. Make a left onto Corey Avenue and continue to the end.

No Saltwater Fishing Registry is needed during the hours of this event.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.
