Coney Island pier

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Been in Coney Island visiting mmy mother in law in a nursing home. Took a walk on the Coney Island fishing pier, saw a conservation officer talking to a fisherman. He had a bunch of short fish he kept. He had no I d, he was given 2 choices , he could go with the co to the police station and have someone come there with his id or have all hig gear confiscated, returned to him when he showed up for court. He chose to go to the police station. I was there the day before and noticed that a lot of people were keeping every thing they caught. Glad to see him on the job.

The last time I was on that pier, it was full of Refrigerator-box "condos."
There was almost no room to fish. Glad to hear it's less crowded.

Everyone goes to the end of the pier to fish, because the water is deepest there....
...but if you want to bring a Fluke home for dinner, fish BEFORE the concession.

i lived in brooklyn my whole life i a, very familiar with coney island as well as other parts such as rockaways and breezy jaimica bay. the problem is alot of foreigners who fish these these areas and will keep anything they catch. which in turn ruins it for everyone else who loves to fish. either people dont understand or dont give a s..t

I remember that pier, the Steeplechase Pier it's called, from my days as a kid. Fond memories fishing the Coney Island Flats and the mussle beds years back with my dad for Fluke! I even remember when the Parachute Jump was still in operation!

I was talking to someone and they said they are reopening the parachute ride. It looked like they repainted it. There were alot of people who looked like they didn't have a clue as to what fish to keep.One other day I saw a guy  pulling up a crab trap, had a 10 inch fluke in it. He was afraid to handle it. Opened the trap and slid it into his bucket. I wanted to say someting but did not want to get into a fight with the guy. I was glad to see the C O there the next day.

Yeah, right!

They don't speak a word of English, until the ECO confiscates their gear.

They think if they pretend not to understand, it makes them immune to the law.

Laws are only for Americans.

If I remember correctly, the crabbing was always good on that pier as well. I wonder if that's still the case.
