MV Derby Oct 3 10

Fished the morning with David Kinney, author of "The Big One", the definitive book about the Martha's Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby. It's a great read even if you're not a fisherman or woman.

We tried West Chop but way too windy almost even for spinning gear so we shot over to Bigt Bridge where the wind was from behind and off the left. Still tough throwing. Not much happening so we went back to Cleveland House for breakfast. Try the South Shore in a bit.

MV Derby Oct 2 10

Wind howling out of the north this morning so nothin doing on the north shore. Fished BIg Bridge for while and got a couple of undersize bass, one Blue and somethin I couldn't identify. (Real(Really.) Went back to Cleveland House and had some breakfast and went out with my wife to do a few things. Wound up back at the bridge for another two hours or so. Pretty slow. Had dinner back at State Road - cassoulet with a bottle of High Hook Pinot Noir. Perfect combo and a really good meal.

2010 Derby

I may be double posting this. Anyway, I spent the morning trying to get an Albie from shore. There still hasn't been a single one caught from shore with a fly rod this year. I got one good shot but didn't hook up. Blew like crazy and now raining like crazy. Supposed to move through quickly and be nice all weekend. I had a great lunch at the State Rd Restaurant. Fried green tomato BLT. Delicious! Had a bottle of Pinot Noir soda with it. High Hook Wines will continue to be involved in this great event. More tomorrow.
