HOW NEW YORK CITIZENS MANAGE
TO GET A DAY OF SPORT.

It ws a frfert day. The sail bathed

inz. A tall German t'l on the pier sell
injf exenrion tickets to the Fishing banks
for seTenty-fire cents apiede. To each
ticket wis a2ixel aeoapoo like a seat check
in a theater. It r-a I -tiocl for one bunch
ot bait." To han'lrej men boaght these
tickets. The majority of them srere Ger
macv The minority -srere pavers oo
strike, mechanics oat ot wc-rk an-1 small
saloon keepers. Each man carried a Cihin
rvi in a iz and a basket with tro lids.
The baskets containel ses-eral poands of
lead cut into chocks weighing from six to
iht ounces, a larcre asortinent of hooks,
melted with (dn p rjr fmX. an-1 stack into
cn-rk. a woolen reel from six toeight inches
in diameter and ome sandwiches.
Near the gangway stands a table 20 feet
lor.fi; and 4 wid, with ra;t?il edijes. Here
the iait L prepared wh:Ie the vessel is en
ro--ue to the h:ii grounds.
The ta:t taed is principally clams or
"fckinircers, as they are called by the fifch
erau'ri. Six of these are tiel into a bunch.
One bunch eo-s with each ticket. Bat as
one bunch of clams would be only a mouth
ful for a hTinry codah or blackfisa the
fihenr.rn inv-t in a cigar box fail of
clan.s. for which they pay ften centa.
WliUe the boat is in motion the fishermen
cni cp the clams on the table into suitable
sizes for bait. One clam usually makes
three baits for sea bass or one bait for cod.
Some of the fishermen prefer mosstmnkers
for ba;t. These they procure at the mar
kets before sailintr. A sharp hhoeknife
removes the fl-sh from the aide of the
mossbunker. The rest of the fish is thrown
away. After the bait is cut np it is salved
to make it tocgh so that it will remain on
the hook when the annoying bergails nib
ble at it. After the bait is prepared each
fisherman picks ont a place close to the
rail from which to fish. This place he se
cures by placing his fishing basket on a
Then he proceeds to prepare himself
for the day's sport. If he is a cleanly
sportsman he ties one end of a towel to the
rail upon which to wipe his hands. He
tb-n dons a pair of overall.- and draws an
old hat down over his ears, for the wind
usually blows fre-h outside of rsandy Hock.
Most of the fishermen ue rod. These are
of every kind, ac-coniina; to the tate of the
fishermen. Now and then a split bamboo
can be seen, but these are rare. The rods
as a rule are made of lance wood and ai-h.
The lines are of varying depreea of thick
r.esA. from a fine bas line to a chalk line.
The reels are of wood and ara fa-tened to
the u lt of the rod. A metal reel is of little
prati'-ai u.e on the fivhiag banks. The
wooden reels will retrieve eiiiliteen inches
of i;f!? w-.th ore rfcvoiutiun. They are also
excellent to tft with. As all fishermen
who tro ilo.vn to the Cholera Ijanks are
flshir.tj for the pot r.r pan. and not for sport,
the advar.tae of an afj-iratns which will
land a fl-h quif.kly is apparent. The great
er nnmber of the i.-.kers iwrl are shaied
like aa eior.atefi bullet. They are alxut
twice as L.;; as a t;an's thumb. A hole
runs lengthwise through the MiAer.
Through this hole tLe line is put, a big
knot on the red of the line keeping it .n
place. Two hooks are nd, one below th
feiLker and or.e above. The rod fishermen
choose the upper decks, while the hand
line men fish from the main deck.
Wi.en the Havana arrived opposite Sea
bright sbe w.vs anchored abfmt two mile
off shore in fifty feet of water. The An
gier and Schnylrr. the opositi..n ii-shing
Ijriats, were alrea!y there lying within a
pi.srol shot of each other. A fleet of small
fi.shir.g lKats was also on the grounds. The
rail of the Havana w.-is filled with eager
fishermen. The anchor plunged to the
bcttorrj. Immediately the Ixtat bri.stlel
with rods. The whirring of reels was
heard and the "plunk" of heavy sinkers.
The first man to hook a fish was a gray
haired German sixty-five years o'd. A
hundred men watched him reel in The
water parted, and dangling from the end
of the line was a pound scabass wearing a
look of amazement. The spikes on its
hack stood t-.p like a barb wire fence. The
German was on the upper deck. As
the fish came up it swung inward and
"swatted" a:i earnest paver in the ?ae.
He struck hack ami t he fish fell back into
the deep. A loud groan arose from all
sides. The German swore w ith Bismarck
ian force. He threw his line overboard
again and fastened his hooks in a New Jer
sey reef. He tugged on his pole. The tip
and the line parted, and seventy feet of
line, two books end an eight ounce sinkeT
were gone. In an agony of annoyance the
"Move de boat!"
This expression, by the way, is one of
the slogans on the fishing banks. The
other Klogan is, "Gc-t the gaff!" A fishing
bank guff is a very crude instrument.
Upon a cane pole twenty feet long is tied
by means of wire a hook smaller but close
ly resembling those used in a butcher shop
to hang meat upou. When a big fish such
as a twenty pound cod is hooked there is
always a loud cry for the gall. The fish is
towed to the top of the water and an inter
ested neighbor is only too eager to gaff the
As soon as the excursion boat was an
chored two small boats were launched
from her decks by four muscular young
men. These boats were rowed 'JUO yards
away from the steamer and nnchored.
The men in the small boats catch what
fish they can, and after the day's fishing is
over retail them to those excursionists who
have been unsuccessful. If a passenger
wishes to fish from the small loats he pays
one dollar for the privilege. The men who
handle the small boats are furnished with
meals and sleeping accommodations, but
no salary is paid them. They earn, how
e'er, about fifteen dollars per week. A
passentrer is not permitted to sell his catch
on board the Hlcamer. but it is frequently
iltiue without the knowledge of the man
agers. The biggest fish caught during the day
was u codiish weighing about six jiounda.
The largest sea bass caught weighed less
than three pounds. The total catch in
cluded SIM sea bass, tun ling, twelve con
ger eels and various nondescript dwellers
