HUNTING, FISHING AND SPORT An angler fishing at Surf City, N. J., last Aveek caught a skate Aveighing sevcnty-fiA-e pounds, playing it for an hour and a half before it Avas subdued. . TAventy-fiA-e of the leading sportsmen of Ocala, Fla., have organized the Bonlto Fishing Club and have purchased Bassey Island, a well-known preserve, in the Gulf of Mexico. Ernest Windle, angler for big game of the Pacific, says: "A fish is as Avise as any animal on four feet AA-hen it realizes that it is playing a game in Avhich its own life is at stake. It is aggraA-atihg to the average angler to Avatch a school of fish swimming about, doing nothing, going noAAhc-re, and they Avont eveai cast flirting glances at a. tempting bait."
