Sometimes the photos can speak for themselves….

Needless to say, local fishermen and women brave dangers to get out to where the fish are plentiful.

Snags are quite plentiful also.

All manner of boats go in pursuit.

 

Humans are not the only fishers out there . . .

Some have a minimal gear approach…

 

 

 

And what’s a nearby ULCV when there are fish to be had . . .

You should have seen the bunker I had on the line recently . . .

 

 

 

All photos, except the two of me by bowsprite as I was cranking in a silver landbass, WVD.

Unlike birds, which inhabit the atmosphere as we do, fish aren’t seen very clearly unless you pull them out of their medium.  Recently I enjoyed watching Gotham Fish Tales, on youtube, an hour and 15 well spent.

Yes . . . it’s summer enough . . .

to call this summer fishing.  But I was not expecting a vessel like Ocean Venture, 71′ x 30′, which pulled into Gravesend Bay the other day. Here’s more info on the Maine registered vessel and her sister Reliance. This shot gives a clear view of the stern.  I was tied up where I was, so I didn’t round the bend to see where she went.  Just beyond her, that’s the Coney Island light.

Twisted Sister came in, and not long later, departed

having added some gear . . . oyster reef starters?

And here comes Rockfish,

heading out for a morning fishing party.

And speaking of fish and fishing . . .   I’ll be gone fishing for a while myself.

All photos, WVD.
