The 2016 Striper Season is off to an early start on the Vineyard. Early reports say the first fresh striper was caught on Martha's Vineyard on April 14th! There are multiple reports of Stripers being caught as this nice Spring weather has kicked things into gear. Where they are being caught, when and on what are of course always secretive so just get out there and wet a line!

Fish On!

MVSA collected a large amount of provisions that were to be sent to SSG Joseph Larson and his unit, somewhere in Iraq. The unit benefitted from the MVSA donations a few months back. He again sent his sincere thanks and said that because they will soon be back stateside he said not to send anymore packages.

If we are going to collect and send packages in the future we will have to keep our ears open for military members who are serving overseas.

The Wampanoag Natural Resources Dept is looking for volunteers to help plant beach grass on the recently replenished Lobsterville Beach.  The planting will take place April 24’th from 9:00 – 3:00.  You’re probably aware that the sand dredged from the Menemsha channel over the winter was used to replenish the beach on the West Basin side.  If you haven’t been up there to see it yet 1) it’s pretty amazing, and 2) this would be a great opportunity to see it and help out with this important project.  Link to the Dept site and additional details


Looks like coffee, water, snacks, and LUNCH from an up-island food truck will be provided.  Bob Lane brought this event to the club’s attn: and will be there.  If you attend pls take some pics and email them to me.  I’ll make sure Ron gets them for the newsletter, and Dave for the web site.  I won’t be able to participate in the planting (off-island day job), but will be there for the beach cleanup the following Sun, April 30, 10:00 AM, Left Fork.


Please help for a few hours if you can, very important fishing spot, I can vouch for at least two big albies that came out of the Bowl two Derbies ago J
