Hoboken Fishing: for the birds

[Reminiscing Hoboken411’s Five Year Anniversary…]

Pier Fishing is an acquired skill in Hoboken

I shot this video at Pier A Park back in the spring of 2008, trying my luck fishing for the first time in Hoboken! I didn’t catch jack squat, but my casting was still very good.

But in the process, some of our neighboring fisherman caught something they didn’t expect whatsoever – not too often you see this not just in Hoboken, but anywhere!

Watch the video to see what happened, the 411 Mascot Oscar going bonkers, and a happy ending!

That was exciting! I was afraid it was going to end in a bad way. Those guys were brave to get that close to a wild bird’s beak.
