Camping Paraphernalia and Park Access

Post by Brian F. » Sat Mar 03, 2012 10:25 am

Several fishermen that are working to restore access to our parks and shoreline around the State have advised me that they were able to meet with members of Governor Abercrombie's staff recently. They do not know what results that might have but they were at least able to inform the "new" administration about the issues of the camping paraphernalia rules and night time park access and what has been going on in the last 10 years or so. They pointed out that the Governor should be aware of these issues and are hopeful that something can be done. The fishermen recalled two meetings with fishermen which then gubernatorial candidate Congressman Abercrombie attended and vowed to help restore beach access and improve relations with DLNR enforcement. For more information, please visit or call Kieth Sienkiewicz at Waipahu Bicycle.
Aloha,

PLEASE support this IDEA!

Our style of recreational shoreline fishing is a 24/7 sport... Many of us enjoy fishing 24/7 and camping at the beaches/shorelines in Hawaii./
Plus many fish species can ONLY BE CAUGHT AT NIGHT'S...

Camping paraphernalia:...is too big of a term... good for the enforcement people..bad for the recreational fisherman... Even your chair, table, or camper on your truck...can be consider a camping paraphernalia's... forks and spoon included...

Problem is how to you separate Recreational shoreline fisherman from the HOMELESS and others who want to enjoy the beach camping..?

Something to think about here..? Can we allow public access only to recreational shoreline fisherman...? without prejudice to homeless and other people who want to enjoy camping or staying all night at the beach..?

Aloha,

What's the difference between a OVER NIGHT fisherman..and the HOMELESS...? Nothing..both doing the same thing... except the overnight fisherman can go home...!

Here is several differences between fishermen and homeless people.

Fishermen respect the beach.

Fishermen respect other beach users.

Fishermen don't make drug deals while fishing.

Fishermen don't steal from other fishermen.

Fishermen don't build shelters on the beach then place a mailbox.

Fishermen don't litter.

This is just what I see. Homeless people who actually want to better themselves have options like living in shelters.
