Day 193: Catch of the day

Stoic old-timers
Hook silvery-scaled fish from
Coney's ancient pier

My grandfather used to fish off the Steeplechase Pier at Coney Island when he was a kid in the 1920s. There is still an active fishing culture on the pier, although there are now signs warning you not to eat anything that you catch (damn mercury). For a good little article about the pier, check this out, and for some great pictures, click here.
