Hey SouthCoast crabbers, you should be aware that the Cape Railroad is getting real pissy about crossing their tracks.  Last week, a guy got cited for trespassing for crossing their tracks to go kayaking.  The have a guy posted at the bridge and is calling the Wareham Police whenever someone crosses the tracks for fishing or crabbing.  Let the wise take heed as they are soon to start passenger service and are protecting their right of way.  This will kill the shore crabbing at the Narrows/Agawam area.................watch your self...............the law reads that there is no warnings, arrest for any violation.

This is the area right behing Main Street

It would be nice if something could be worked out with the RR on public access in that area.....mike the owner of m
+d's bait & tackle had this to say about the situation...........

 


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I just got off the phone with John Pearson from Cape Rail Inc. I was informed that they will enforce the trespass order on all who cross their property. 1st time a warning 2nd time arrested and prosecution. I was also informed that this will be for all the property which they control, which is all the rail lines on cape cod. He went on saying there is 3 access points on the cape side and only 3 access points all others are not in agreement with the army corps and are not allowable and any use of these areas are not allowed and will be enforced
If you would like to give John a call his direct # is 401-862-5343
This is going to get interesting.

Here is a copy of the no trespass order

I have talked to three people who have received orders of No Tresspassing from Cape Rail.  The only way you can access is to put in a kayak or canoe from the public ramp behind the old Tremont Nail Factory on Elm Street or from the public ramps at Besse Park at the Narrows.  No more walk across the tracks from Merchants Way and hand line or scap from the banks.

I show this as a crabbing spot on my maps that I send out, so be warned about this area !!!!!

people do every day, but there is the risk of arrest or notice from the railroad police at any time

I think I got the reason that the Narrows became a hot spot for trespass enforcement..............I talked to a guy who told me that it all started with some guy crabbing who gave a right of way employee of Cape Rail a whole big ration of "you know what" and threatend to kick parts of his posterior, so the employee called the Wareham P.D. and an arrest was made...................they hit the area for a few days to keep the crabbers and people fishing down and have now resumed their normal routine..............

Still, I would use caution and if RR people are around..............make yourself scarce......................That right of way if very long and it would take lots of RR Police to enforce the law on it's whole length.
