Beach traffic is light in the early morning and on week days. No sane man goes at any other time unless he must. A couple of delivery trucks were on the road, and the inevitable fisherman, rods protruding from a window as he hurried to get to his station before the fish woke up. WHITE REALTY CO.

Inside, Ken Bradley, still a bit sleepy-looking, was nursing a cup of coffee behind the counter. He acted surprised -- he had never seen us up so early. There is a ritual one always goes through at a pier. One walks into the tackle shop, addressing the place in general, "How's fishing?" The answer is invariably t r u t h f u l , good or bad. "What're they biting on?" Again, the question is honestly answered. \ Then one advances to the bar, orders coffee or coke and maybe a doughnut or snack. If there are 1 any fish in sight, one duly admires them, looks over the tackle display, mentally comparing one's own gear with the rest. Only then does the prospective fisherman order bait or a plug or whatever else might be needed'. Finally, he pays the toll and advances, heavily laden, to the portals that open onto the magic wood platform over the water. Here fishermen all cluster together like swarming bees. There may be a thousand feet of pier, but the fishermen will be gathered in tight little groups so they can fling their lines over others, see what others "are catching, have their catches admired, exchange lies, renew acquaintances and learn new methods of attaching shrimp to a hook. We joined them, elbowing our way into a thin spot, set down our tackle, rigged up while a d m i r i n g others' catches and heaved our lures into the surf. Newcomers to fishing piers will note that everyone fishes on one side of the pier only. It's not that there aren't fish on the other side, but it is the socially accepted thing to do. Practical, too. Imagine 40 people on each side of the pier flinging tackle through the air at the same time: the lead, shrimp, bloodworms, plugs, monofilament, -hooks and rod tips would make a mortar barrage look like a paper wad shooting contest by comparison. It's dangerous enough with the fishermen all on one side. The sea was peaceful. Well offshore a ship was making for the sea lanes. Occasional gulls and terns swooped and screamed their challenges at the world. The seas rolled in as they have through the ages, cresting at the tug of the shoaling bottom. Breaking and falling in a thump, hiss and roar, they slid by in a seething, foaming white mass, only to repeat the endless assault on the moving, shifting sands. Beach cottages, crowded a few feet behind the sea wall, were white and placid in the sun: The ever-narrowing beach, cleansed, purged, by the rolling surf, was marked by globs of seaweed, temporarily abandoned, lying dark against thejwet sand, soon to be reclaimed, as will all that stands in the way of the sea. -. Skipping just ahead of the foaming waters, never wetting their feet, were tiny sanderlings, racing up and down the wetness, pausing to stab a morsel of food, then running on, to take quick flight and settle a few yards farther on. They were mirrored in the glare of the sun glinting off the sand. *· The sign on the waterfront may be true when it says, "The gods do not subtract from the alloted span of men's lives the hours spent in fishing." I've yet to meet anyone who has found it possible to worry while tending the end of a fishing rod. Blues had started biting about four a.m., followed by sea mullet and croakers. Fishing slacked off as soon as we arrived, but even with my attendance, they couldn't stop entirely. I plugged for blues with a Hopkins while Mary enticed creokers off the bottom with shrimp. A hefty strike bent my rod tip to a deep bow. When I set Ihe hook, line stripped from the reel. Now it's not true, as a friend accuses, that I have the same mono line on the spool as when I bought the reel back in the early 50s. Still, it was old enough that I played the fish carefully and scientifically. After a hard battle, I managed to subdue an eight-ounce croaker. Ken Bradley is a diplomat: he soothed my sagging ego by suggesting that I put it in the fish scaling machine anyway. The sealer is good for up to 50 pounds, so, after several minutes of stomping and thrashing, it yielded one fish, cleansed, frammed and tenderized. As I walked to the car, I heard still more commotion. Fish were flying through the air like falling leaves. How is it that fish always seem to know when I leave the scene?
