re: fishing the surf:

steve Heins has referred your question to me for the answer.
[mr.richie Otterstedt]
I am the Chief Env. Cons. Offcer for long lsland.
section 11-0103-12b ECL .defines angling as taking fish by hook and line,
with no more than two lines.
if you fish with more than two lines, you are by law,
[ Section 13-0335-1 ECL]
no longer angling,but rather presumed to be taking fish for commercial purposes and must have a commercial foodfish license.
So ,in summary, recreational marine district fisherman may only fish with two lines, unless they have a commercial foodfish licence,
and than,they are required to comply
with all the commercial fishing regulation while exercising the privaledges of the foodfish license.
