What I intend to be doing in two weeks …

News – Vineyard Gazette


Off to Martha’s Vineyard for ten days of fishing beginning 9.22 (with a one-day interruption to speak at an event in NYC).

“Opening day at the 2007 Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby was a smash, including the recording of a first day grand slam by Capt. Tom Langman of Menemsha likely a first day record. Derby president Ed Jerome said of the slam: “We don’t keep records for that but I don’t ever remember it happening on the first day. Certainly we’ve had one-day grand slams before but they are rare.””

The Derby is one of the most venerable fishing events in the world, and the subject of a great book that was recently republished, Reading the Water by the late Bob Post.

  1. Hi David:

    New reader here – great blog. Couldn’t help commenting on this one. Two years ago we took the kids out of school in September for a week in MV. Turns out we were there the week of the fishing derby and had a blast. We all went down to the weigh-in every night to see who was in the lead.

    Great memories.
