man slang ths Jersey ootvst fludt bis fa
vorlu "biting" ground, Tha latter may
be 19 t nor fat bom deep, and a
doaet.br taore'ttlle oil shore 5 but,
with the aid of itvob landmarks as trees,
steeple an4 beach oottegee, lying la
variooa tlireotioni along the strand,
tbeee Crank nrfmen seldom make a mis
take In "picking op" the ground sought
offshore.- It's no easy Job this tndlng
of some particularly good fishing ground
that baa no mark on the chart and Is
only fixed in the nilud of fishermen by
study of distance from the shore.
It is a well known (act that flab mast
be sought Tbey will not, as a mis,
oom to the fisherman, be tha latter
professional or amateur. Sea flab, a
well as lake fish, like rocky bottom, and
it Is orer this kind of bottom tbat the
best catches are made. It is no easy task
to locate a rooky bed along the Jersey
coast, and even with range or land
marks one is not always oertaln to find
it on another day's fishing trip. Tbe
range are manipulated this wayt
In an ordinary sorfboat, snch as the
majority of the Jersey fishermen nse,
tbe beach line tbat looks so white aud
eitcnslrs close inshore rcsmnble a
white thread at a distance of, say, IS
milte from the land. When the fisher
men dlscoTer a new ground at or about
that distance offshore, they generally
plok throe marks on land one north,
one sonth and tha third directly to tbe
westward. By bringing thoe throe
marks to a convergence the happy hunt
ing ground is located.
As a rule these fishermen are a bit
srlfitb when new ground are discover
ed. They onnceal tho fact as -long as
possible iroin one another, for business
reason principally, tor there Is a rip
competition among these bench comb
ers, aud it is only by pl.iyiug possum
and keeping a wenther eye open tbat
one luurus what bis rival sometimes
Oue day last srtuon a reporter was In
oue of three surf boats 18 miles offshore
from Earnegiit. The flahoriiiun iu charge
of the tiny naf t was betiding for a rocky
bottom as far offshore as ho dared to go
' without compass and provisions. When
J within a mile or so of tho ground, an
' other fisherman and bis helper wore
i seen at anchor. They were hauling op
whacking big bass us fact as thoy could
throw out, n:id altogutber they seomnd
to be having a glorious time. AfU-r tbe
two bout bad separated sufficiently to
permit a private conversation tho pro
fessional in charge of the first mention
ed craft said to bis shipmate:
"Did yon mark It?"
"Yes," answered the other. "Tho
pier' to tbe westward, the I fo saving
station is to tbe nortbwsrd and tbe
cottage of that old crank is to the south
ward." "That tbo way I made it," replied
tbe first speaker. All this seemed like
so much Greek to one of tbe amateurs
in the boat who began to ask questiona
"That's a new ground, " said the Oth
er man. "Wo didn't know tbat It exist
ed. Yes, tbey are catching lots of fish.
Why don't I go back and tiy it? Well,
I do not like to imitate people at least
I do not care to let them see me copy
them. I'll try it some other day. "
It may bare been professional pride
or etiquette, this sharp bit of praotioo,
but in other walks of life it wonld be
called a trick of tbe trade. It's done all
along tbe beach. Here' another triok
of tbe trads that a turfman at Belmar
taught thla landlubber ly reporter.
There' a schooner tbat take oity folk
from Aibury Park offshore to fish. She
was anchored ten mile offshore this
particular morning over a newly found
ground, and there were balf a down or
more surf boaU clustered about her. Tbe
biting was first class, but presently one
of tbe big fishing steamboats from the
Battery was lighted beading down tbe
beach. There wa an Interchange of
conversation on the part of the profe
lional fishermen, bnt Ihey suddenly
pulled up anchor as if one man and
began rowing around, '
The schooner weighed ber bower also
and under ber headsail and mainsail
reached offshore. Naturally the ama
teur wanted to know why a shift
should be wade, especially as the strikes
were unusually lively. "That' the Hal
Oorster ooniing down," said oue of the
fisbcrmon in a half whisper, as if those
on tbe steamboat oould hear him, al
though she was fully two milos away.
"We have a good ground here, and we
don't want hor pilots to find tbn ruugos.
She'll keep to tho southward, and wo'll
circlo around until she gits out of the
way. That's how we sitve onr bucon. "
Aud tbey did snve it too. The stontn
Lout kept to tbe south wurd for some lit
tlo distunce and finally, being nimble
to gut the rung or whatever ground
her pilots had in viow, ennio about
again and stood to the northwurd, final
ly anchoring off Long Branch. She hud
no sooner done so when the liHhiitg
schooner and surfbonts, affor a mental
and ocular etruggle with ranges, were
back in their original positions, with
thoir amateurs fishing like miscUct
