Well, Rob pretty much told it the way it went. From what the guys told me before I met them up there, the fishing wasn't real good yet. They caught a couple here & there! Now I'm not sure if the fish showed up when I got there or they were already there? :D ;) :D But I did hammer them pretty well! But we did limit out everyday that I was there! It seemed to be an early moring bite! On Sunday we found a birdplay at the point of Gayhead lighthouse hammered the Stripers for over 2 hrs. There was a lot of small guys in there but if you bucktailed away from the birds the big girls were there! We caught a lot of fish between 20 & 40 lbs and we had 1 or 2 over 40. If the weather would have been better I would have taken more pictures! But below are a few that I took!
All the fish I caught were caught on bucktails tipped with REELSTRIPS, white bucktails with green strips or green bucktails with white strips.

This is Chris with a nice Striper.


Here's Barry (bunkerhead) with his biggest of the trip.


Here's me with one of many that I caught!


Below are some pics I took just to show the island.

This is what it was like most of the time there!
You can barely make the island out in the background

Rob,
As soon as I load them on the computer I'll post them for you.

egghead,
We fish from Gayhead to Squibknocket. The sixth picture down was about 3 miles north of Squibknocket.

I even got the home made brew in that picture. Marthas Vineyard has its own brewery. Pretty tasty stuff.

Congrats on the nice fish and having an all around good time. The Vineyard is my favorite fishing ground and you guys made the most of it even if the weather was unccoperative. Nice job on the pics.

Nick,
I do, Timmy planted them there! I must admit Timmy taught me a couple techniques for using bucktails. I can tell ya this, you can't bucktail up there like you do in NJ.

Laura,
You'd love it up there!

He says he don't like the internet bacause his fishing spots get to crowded!
Which I find really funny because 95% of his spots were found through the internet. :D
