Special Correspondence Evening Journal, Nbw Cs 8 Ti.it. April 23 —Never for twenty years were tbe catches of shad in the Delaware river as large as yesterday and thla morning. Tbe river Is full of fine fish and all that Is necessary for the fisherman to reap a rich harvest; Is to watch ble drifts, keep his net in the water as long as possible, snd not try to stop off Philadelphia commerce with his cork line Fully 80,000 shad were hauled out of tne Delà »»re river yesterday from Chester to the lower bay, and these are being shipped to markets of the East, to day. New Castle alone got 4,000 fish as a result of the fishing from even log of Sunday until this morning. The beat luck of the day for the fishsrmeu, however, was that the price only dropped from $16 to $12 per hundred, and tbat the Bales averaged $13 per hundred. Seme of the Beat Catchet. New Castle boats made their best catches for twenty veers They brought In from 150 to 400 shad "Tbe 400" were caught by Captain William O'Oon nor. Captain Davis's eitch of 347 consisted of 300 of the biggest shad chat have been taken ont of the tlver In recent years. Tbe Sue condition of the fish and the wide market for them makes prices solid and tbe fishermen happy. Captain William Bartlett's catch weighed over 1.000 pounds, and with his net and partner be would not have been able to get ashore without throwing soma of the fish overboard had a squall sprung up. Bigger Nets and Fewer Fishermen. Joseph B King and John B Vfiilng, who «era fishing In the tlver eff New Castle twenty years ago, remember when staid were caught once before by tbe 300 and 400, as was tbe case yesterday such a thing was mote astonishing then than now aa there were more fishermen and shorter ueta with which to catch the 300'eand 400's Mr. King remembers hauling in 800 off one drift Both these old fishermen, however, pronounce tbe work of yesterday as wonderful, even though there were only thirteen fisher men from New Castle and they had 5U0 fathoms of net each. Captain Charles Lancaster bed disagreement with several tank steamers but the New Castle man, not wishing tear any plates off these ocean "tramps," very courteously rowed up In front them and out bis net until finally It was floating around the Delaware in three pieces, every piece going In a different direction and full of shad. Prediet« a Great Season. Colonel John Sherman, one of tbe shrewdest buyers now traveling on the Eastern coast, has arrived here for remainder of the season to represent big New York concern. He has followed the fiih all tbe way up the Atlantic coeet, having begun buying In Florida four mouths ago Colonel Hherman just as the Evkniko Journal did some weeks ago, predicts most prosperous shad season "Tbe fish," lie says, "arc running splendidly all thl cdS st, aud then this late Spring kept tbe water cool until just tbe proper time, so that no fish have been driven out of tbe stream These good catches should continue uninterruptedly, aud season of '95 will be remembered as time wbeu Delaware shad were abundant Owing to tbe wide market and good demand there la no probability of an early drop In prices.
