    Eaton's Neck is tough too, as is Lloyd Neck. All are worth the trip.

      Short beach in Smithtown. This time of year you shouldn't need a permit

        We used to beach dive at Beach 9th street in Far Rockaway. Probably too far for you but we pulled blackies off the piers of the Atlantic Beach bridge at will. Lots of structure closer to shore because the channel is dredged.

        FWIW we never had any issues there and we often had thousands of dollars in dive gear on us or in our cars.

          Meschutt Beach in Hampton Bays. It is on the north side of Shinnecock Inlet. Large stone jetty, has inlet on the west side and rocks structures to the east side. You can cast from the beach or the jetty. Parking is free after 5pm. There is a bar and restaurant there too with live music on weekends.

            I’ve pulled many blackfish from the jetty at Moriches inlet, fiddler crabs for bait. North end facing east. Don’t remember which tide.

                John Skinner has a video where he explains how to find rocks for black fishing from the surf. Do a search on his YouTube page. The north shore, google earth and Navionics are your friend. The first 2 are free. Navionics you’ll have to pay for.

                  Be prepared to lose a lot of rigs blackfishing from the shore. We lose plenty when fishing directly above them from a boat. Can't imagine how many more rigs we'd lose if we were dragging them across the rocks. Plenty of blackfish and rocks at Caumsett if you have a permit.
                  Good luck to ya 👍
