Fishing the Vineyard Report 0715/10

Pictured in this spread are Justin and Layla from the UK and Dr. Eric from the Green Mountain State (birthplace of Chester A. Arthur and Calvin Coolidge, bet ya didn't know that). The conditions on the mothership the past couple of trips have prohibited us from sightcasting for any prolonged period of time, but hey, we've been making some pretty tasty lemonade. Open water bass fishing is still hanging tough, especially for this time of year. And the teeth are still plentiful when you need um. The visibility looks better going forward, so hopefully I'll have a flats report in the near future.

It's funny ya know, people are always asking me "hey, old man, what do Fishing the Vineyard kids do while they're waiting for the mac-tuna to become prevalent inshore?" In the spirit of keeping this thing informative I decided to compose a little photo essay to answer this very question...

Sometimes we take field trips. Here's Robby the other day at the Green Room.

We've been known to roast a pig or two.

On Tuesdays, it's arts and crafts at Jaime's new house. This little camper made a mask...isn't it cute?

Once in a blue moon we even go people watching in West Tisbury.
