Divers were in the water Wednesday afternoon to see if the man, whose name was not released, had drowned, she said.

Jackson "Bomber" Neall, 76, an avid fisherman and volunteer, died of cancer Sunday at his home in Ocean City. Mr. Neall, who earned his nickname while a student at the Episcopal Academy in Philadelphia, served in the Naval Air Corps during World War II. He was also an accomplished athlete. He grew up in Merchantville, but a love of fishing and the ocean led him to make his permanent residence at the Jersey Shore. He lived in Ocean City for 50 years. In 1949, Mr. Neall received a degree in business from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

A fisherman reeled in an unusual catch Tuesday at a Gloucester County pond: a 26-inch American alligator. The gator, found at Franklinville Lake in Franklin Township, was turned over to the Gloucester County Animal Shelter. According to shelter director Bill Lombardi, the gator was likely dropped in the lake by someone who could no longer care for it. It was the second alligator found in South Jersey in six months. A two-foot gator was pulled from beneath a bridge near a lake in Gloucester Township.

He went down to the Schuylkill to do some fishing, possibly for carp, catfish or big-mouth bass, all plentiful there. But in the end, it was he who was being fished for. By 11 last night, divers from the Police Department's marine unit had not found the unidentified fisherman, whom they had long since presumed to have drowned in the frigid, murky water. The tragic accident occurred off Kelly Drive in the shadow of the Strawberry Mansion Bridge on the east bank of the Schuylkill.

A Cape May fisherman who allegedly shot a pilot whale from the deck of his commercial fishing boat - causing a drawn-out and likely excruciating death for the marine mammal - surrendered to U.S. marshals Thursday and could face a year in prison and a $100,000 fine if found guilty. Daniel Archibald, 27, is charged with one count of violating the Marine Mammal Protection Act and was released on $10,000 unsecured bond after appearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge James B. Clark III in federal court in Newark, N.J. An 11-foot, 740-pound pilot whale died shortly after washing ashore in Allenhurst, Monmouth County, on Sept.

The storm came here Friday morning. Lightning split the dull sky. Thunder roared down the deserted beach like a runaway train. Terns fled the beach grass. A lone fisherman, standing in the foam of angry surf, reeled in his metal lure and made a dash to his borrowed truck. He left behind blues, stripers, false albacore, mackerel - whole schools of them, he suspected. Reluctantly, he made the long drive back to his camp - a fishing shack, really, protected by dunes, off a dirt road, 10 miles from town, surrounded by other fishing shacks, each with a nautical name.

FRANK CRAWLEY was popular in his Southwest Philadelphia neighborhood for a couple of reasons. Mostly, he was a friendly, helpful guy who would sit outside his home on Angora Terrace near 58th Street and greet passing neighbors who would often stop and chat. They knew that Frank was not only a pleasure to be with, but that he would be there for them if they ever needed any kind of help. He was a very neighborly neighbor. And then there were the fish. Frank and some of his buddies seemed to have a natural talent for bringing in the fish, whether from the Chesapeake Bay or the Atlantic Ocean.

IT DIDN'T matter where Fran McQuade was - Florida, Jamaica, down the Shore - he invariably ran into somebody he knew. "Hey, I know that guy," he would say to his wife, Ruth, who knew that she was going to have to wait patiently while he had a sometimes lengthy conversation with the other party. Fran couldn't help it. People were just drawn to him, and wherever he went - on the job, at the ballpark, around his Levittown neighborhood - he made friends. "He had beautiful blue eyes and a beautiful smile," Ruth said.

A LONE fisherman stood on the beach Sunday morning in Mantoloking, casting his double-hooked rig out into a clear, flat Atlantic Ocean over and over with little luck. Behind him, the Ocean County borough's multimillion-dollar beachfront still resembled a pretty face with some teeth punched out. For every mansion that stood straight and seemingly unaffected by Superstorm Sandy one year later, there were sandy stretches of nothing, empty lots where houses once stood, marked with debris, police tape and the occasional inground swimming pool.

EVERY commercial fisherman has good days and bad days, stretches when the sea seems as barren as the moon and others when the nets are fat with fins, claws and shells. Matthew Camp, of Lower Township, Cape May County, had a recent run of good days aboard a scallop boat, the F.V. Nancy Elizabeth, and things were set to get even better Sept. 9 when he planned to buy an engagement ring and propose to his longtime girlfriend, Tabitha Bohn. Camp, 32, cashed a check for $12,000 at a bank that morning, stuffed the bills into his backpack and headed south on the Garden State Parkway on his motorcycle about 8 a.m. Then fate or a faulty zipper deep-sixed the day: All those bills fluttered out of his backpack, all those hours on the ocean tossed away like a shucked scallop shell.

LOS ANGELES - Jonathan Winters, the cherub-faced comedian whose breakneck improvisations and misfit characters inspired the likes of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey, has died. He was 87. The Ohio native died Thursday night at his Montecito, Calif., home of natural causes, said Joe Petro III, a longtime friend. He was surrounded by family and friends. Winters was a pioneer of improvisational standup comedy, with an exceptional gift for mimicry, a grab bag of eccentric personalities and a bottomless reservoir of creative energy.

A bundle of energy, Keith, 10, is always on the go. He enjoys ice skating, bowling, and roller skating. But most of all, he loves fishing. When he is taken to a local park with a lake or pond, he will cast his line for hours if you let him. However, he does not like to touch the fish and depends on someone else to take the fish off the line for him. He also likes being on the computer, which he uses for games and for school projects. Keith looks forward to going to school, where he benefits from special education services.
