Jaiem. This is no Joke. Here is the link to the Smithtown permit page...

Scroll down and you will see that there really is a permit needed and you must be a resident.

Worm digging is a type of insect harvesting. In some parks it is not allowed. Also, in any environmentally sensitive Tidal Wetland, you are not permitted to dig or move more than a small amount of sand/mud.

Be careful.

I wish this were a joke.

Sandworms, and blood worms have been in trouble on Long Island for years. 40 years ago you had a tough time finding a dozen and it hasn't gotten any better since then. Almost all of the worms in bait stores have come from Maine for years.
