Under a blue cloud-ruffled sky, Dense trees along the banks, And a fellow with a red bandana Sitting in a small, green Flat-bottom boat Holding the thin whip of a pole. —Billy Collins
Three bluefish, a nice bass plus an albie and a bonito all crossed the scale Sunday morning, and the 69th annual Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby was under way. At 8 a.m. the wooden doors of the small fishing shack on Edgartown harbor slid open, welcoming the first catches.
