Urban Angler Catches a Big Bluefish Proving Life Can Actually Survive in the East River

In a video from 2011, urban anglers from NYC Fishing, caught a very large Bluefish just off the coast of upper Manhattan in Yorkville, aka the East River. The most surprising element here isn’t that fish swim in a river, but rather that fish swim in this river. I hope he didn’t eat it.
