I'm still recovering from the Tournament which started Saturday at 7pm and ended at 2am on Sunday. I would call it a howling success except there was little success and a great deal of howling as it blew and poured all night. Our team of four fished the famous Dog Fish Bar and only caught four bass. I used every bit of the fierce tailwind on my spey rod to get out to rolling and splashing hickory shad and stripers to catch the first two of the night. We needed three stripers each to be in competition but it was not to be. The MV Rod and Gun Club puts on a great Tournament that is founded on C&R instead of slaughter.
Here are a couple of shots from our scouting in the days before the Tournament. The Vineyard is a gem before the tourist season gets under way.
