KR-Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 He's Hauled Nets In These Waters For 30 Years TERMITES? CALL TOMASELLO 585-2551 FOR coanin $i cotioi sum mmm of na nationm fBt COMTKt ASKXUIION "You know, right now things aren't very lively around here. Most of the boys have gone up north following the fish up the coast. I usually do, but I decid- ed to stick around here this time. Things are real quiet around here now, but you come back during the season and things will be real lively, Lots of action and people. Okay?" mwm n i GEO Q0fRI3DCE get tired of giving things away." Moree fishes out of East Coast Fisheries, 950 Broadway, Riviera Beach. "Last year a million and a half pounds of fish went through this fish house. Just about an average year. The whole county probably produces about seven million pounds in an average year," said Moree. During the season, Moree said he works 'round the clock. "Sure, you go out at two or three in the morning, stay out till you fill up your boat, then come in, empty It, catch a few hours sleep and go back out again. We do this 24 hours a day until the fish stop running. It's a lot of work, but you get a lot of time to rest too. Like when the wind's wrong or the fish aren't running. Moree kept working methodically, looking up at the sky once in a while as it thundered and began to cloud up. "Looks like the weather's going to change. Fisherman around here were hoping for a hurricane to stir up the bottom and make the crawfish move." I Though primarily a mackerel fisherman, Moree also catches kingfish and crawfish. "When you're In this business you got to have your fingers in ' a lot of pies. I fish for mackerel but they aren't running now so I catch a few crawfish." A little puppy about six weeks old started to whine from his prison in a crawfish trap. "She was a little too restless kept running around so I put her in there to cool down, he explained. Moree runs a 34-foot boat called the Jackie K. He has two men to help him during the season. "We go out there and fish with the net. No chumming or anything. Just throw the net out and pull It in. Winch? This is the only winch we got," he said holding up his hands. "Thisisour winch." "It's a rough life all right. But you have something you've been doing all your life and you gotta find something you like about it." Moree looked out at the water where the fishing boats were docked, each one rocking a little bit in the sunlight. 1 ;.K v eral local radio stations, ranging from pop music to classical selections.

Grew up in the business. My father was a fisherman before me. He fished all his life." Leland Moree, a short, powerfully built man wilh a bone-deep tan, was sitting on a pile of old fishnet, busily cutting rope from another pile of net. Working methodically, talking slowly, he pulled the rope across his lap, cutting the knots that held the rope to the net. "I tied every one of these knots mvself. They're called half hitches," he said cutting another knot. The knots were about five inches apart, each precisely and carefully tied on about 200 feet of rope. "This is still perfectly good net, but I need the sinkers and line for another net. Things in this business change a lot. You invent something new and you gotta change everything else. That's why I have to have this rope. I even had a guy who wanted the net. He wanted it for free though. I told him, "You drop a twenty-dollar bill down here and I'll quit cutting this net.' He wouldn't. He wanted me to give it to him. I foON'T SAY WATER j Say I How did j Your Coffee j Taste j j This ! i Mnrnincr? ! Would "blah" describe it? Could it be the water you're using to make it?
