Herring fishing, Coney Island Pier


Got a random day off, paddled to the Coney Island Pier & back, not quite 20 miles, would've gone longer but I got a late start. Lovely afternoon & evening. The brants are thinning out, saw my first tern of the season, and at one point there were two or three loons calling back & forth.

Nice to do 2 long trips back to back & find myself less sore from the almost-20-mile trip than I was from the 14 mile trip. Could just be that the wind died down more this time.

Hello! This photo came up in a Bing image search for fishing off the Coney Island pier. I work at Baruch College, and I'd like to use it in our peer tutor training program to illustrate a particular concept (teaching a man to fish versus giving a man a fish). May I have your permission to use the photo with proper attribution?

Hi Michele! Sure, sounds like a good use for it. My real name is Bonnie K. Aldinger, you can use that for the attribution. Thanks for asking!
