Fabulous Fishing on the Blackhawk2

Friday the 13th was an unlucky day for any fish that were swimming near us in the Peconic bay. A good number of them ended up on the deck of the boat and eventually made their way to the coolers. Seventeen of us set out from Niantic CT and took the ride accross the sound to the Peconic bays area where the fish are congregating right now. A foggy start to the day gave way to some sunshine and a boatload of fish for everyone. Many of us catching close to the limit of thirty Scup each. Some nice weakfish and seabass rounded out the catching during the day. Great time was had by all. Below are some pictures of the catch.

Pistol Recertification

NEW YORK, (WETM) – According to New York State Police, an individual must recertify pistol permits in New York every five years on the date of their initial recertification date. They say they issued the clarification in the response to misinformation.

Incorrect information was reportedly circulating, telling gun owners that pistol permit recertification would be due by January 15. This is only true for pistol permit holders who recertified on Jan. 15, 2017-five years earlier.

Pistol permits issued in New York before Jan. 31, 2013, were first due to be recertified with the New York State Police by Jan. 31, 2018. The pistol permit recertification website was first opened to allow recertification on January 1, 2017. This date range created a 13-month window to allow New York pistol permit holders enough time to submit their first recertification.

The due dates for the second round of pre-2013 issued pistol permits will range between January 1, 2022, to January 31, 2023. Permits issued after January 31, 2013, were due to recertify five years after the permit issue date, and every five years thereafter.

A pistol permit holder who recertified on March 8, 2017, would be due to recertify by March 8, 2022. Find out your current recertification status online.
