National Fisherman

ATLANTIC CITY — A fishing vessel ran aground near the Pier Shops at Caesars early Monday morning and stayed there through much of the day — creating another tourist attraction in the busy section of the beach.

The 56-foot Jessica Heather ran aground just after midnight near Missouri Avenue, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. It was removed shortly before 6 p.m., said Coast Guard Operations Specialist First Class Michael Blake. The boat was towed back into the ocean as high tide approached. The vessel was structurally sound, Blake said.

Earlier, the Coast Guard, Atlantic City Office of Emergency Management and Atlantic City police responded to the scene. The Coast Guard established a 100-yard perimeter around the vessel as a safety precaution.
