Martha's Vineyard - Memorial Day weekend 2010

A great weekend of fishing!

Hooked into a nice fish Saturday night at Vineyard Haven harbor.

Chartered a boat w/ the kids on Sunday and caught several very large bluefish. The kids had a ball. I hooked / landed several on the fly.

Later Sunday night, I went to Lobsterville to try the Bronzino fly, a new Enrico Puglisi fly that was tailor-made for the stripers there (and stripers, in general). I spent ~1.5 hours and caught two excellent fish, one in the 32-33" range and the other in the 27-28" range. The bigger fish made multiple runs and took considerable line. It was a great fight and took a good 10+ minutes to get that fish in. And, it was the fish's lucky day, as I let it go :-).

The next morning, I took the kids to the Edgartown dock, where the caught several Scup, some of decent size. The theme of the morning was 'do it all yourself', cast, set the hook and take the fish off.

It was truly a great weekend!
