The MVSA will host a mini Derby and beach cookout on June 8’th from 3-9 PM at the left fork of Norton point - in the area of the TTOR gate house.  We’ll fire up the grills around 6:00PM.  Prizes will be awarded for the heaviest blue, heaviest striped bass, and most fish landed.   In the event of rain we may have to reschedule and will let members know via email and the MVSA web site.  Hope to see you there.

Janet Messineo repainted and spoofed up the MVSA line box at Eastville beach. Janet also posted the current MA state regulations for Striped Bass, Scup, Fluke and Black Sea Bass in English, Portugese and Russian. There will be no confusion or excuses this year on the regulations and size of these fish.
 
Check out Janet's photos of the new updated box and Former President Bob Lane who helped Janet to install the box back on the beach.

Any day now!

A contract has been signed with the winning bidder (I think a Rhode island firm) and they have recently sent their surveyor out here to lay out the project. Most of the materials are “off the shelf” except for some steel components and fabrication was completed last week.  Next step is to deliver these to the island, probably via a barge which will assist with the construction.  No details on when this will all start to happen but the contract was issued with a June 30 completion date.  I suspect that very shortly we will see something going on there so if any of you notice anything please let us know.

Beach Update (5.2.13): 

All beaches are currently open for driving and walking access.  Our shorebird monitors have been keeping track of plovers at the Gut, East Beach (including Leland Beach) as well as Norton Point Beach.  Terns have begun arriving on Norton Point Beach.  There are American Oystercatcher nests at Cape Poge, East Beach, and Norton Point Beach.  Those Oystercatcher nests should not have any impact on currently driveable beaches.
