Stars and Striped Fish

It's funny ya know, people are always asking me "hey, old man, how do Fishing the Vineyard kids ceremonialize their sovereign autarchy from the United Kingdom?" Well Kevin, parades and fireworks are great, but the best way to rub it in the face of the monarchy is to go out and get our hands on something that they lost their rights to at the surrender of Yorktown; the brown clown. Sorry Cornwallis and company, but once you were besieged at the battle of the Chesapeake these became ours. You can come back and visit them, but it will cost you roughly $600 a day. Oh, and by the way, our infant democracy has grotesquely mismanaged them so they're much smaller and harder to catch than you remember. Sucka. Fishing on Cayo Martha remains pretty good, and with the weekend crowds sailing back to the mainland soon I'd anticipate that it will maintain vitality for some time to come.

"Red and white, blue suede shoes, I'm Uncle Sam, how do you do?"
