Three fishermen on Coney Island's Steeplechase Pier were interviewed on a sunny day in June. Harry Delgado and "Stretch" live in Coney Island and frequently fish from the pier as well as other local spots. Larye Mcsheppard lives in Queens, and though he had visited Coney Island's amusements in the past, he said it was his first time fishing at the pier. They share their philosophy of fishing, how they started fishing, and the types of fish one can catch in Coney Island.
