Wasque point is still undergoing serious erosion. If you haven't been out there recently or since last year's MV Derby you really need to get informed and see this are during the day. Check out these recent photos, at the link below, taken by Ron Domurat (Thanks Ron)

Wasque photos as of August 29, 2012


There is serious erosion from Wasque point all the way West to the breach. There are huge piles of debris, swan pond is gone, Wasque beach West to the breach is gone and the cliffs from Wasque lookout are a 20-30 foot drop directly into the Atlantic! Everyone loves to fish these areas but we are asking our members and all fishermen to please be careful out there. You need to see these areas during the day to really understand how dangerous these areas can be to fish. Please also inform any other fishermen or visiting derby participants of the dangerous conditions.

The breach area on the Chappy side and Norton side are just as dangerous. There is a serious drop off from shore with very swift moving currents and deep water. You can find yourself standing in ankle deep water and then your next step is into 10 feet of swift moving water!

We want every fishermen to enjoy the derby and the island but please be careful and educate yourself about these areas. No fish is worth somebody being injured or losing their life over.

Enjoy the 67th Martha's Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby but please be careful out there.


Fish On!
