I went to Staten Island to fish at a lake near CSI. No not that CSI, The College of Staten Island. Bass, Carp and panfish live in this lake. I saw 4 big orange koi, that refused to feed while I was there.
After a few hours I took the S62 bus to Clove Lakes Park. Fish were not active but I managed to catch a small catfish.

On the way to Staten Island, the ferry passes The Statue of Liberty.
