FIshed the Vineyard last week on Wednesday with local guide Kevin Ludwig. Beautiful morning. The bonito were sparse but we landed a few including my first bone on the fly (see pic). Took my boat to Cuttyhunk this past weekend and had two fun/frustrating mornings chasing small bluefins in the Sound. Tons of bait. Sunday, I landed a small bass on the fly, a monster blue on the spinning rod, and lost a tuna on the fly. Took my 9-year old nephew from Vermont out for his first saltwater boat fishing trip. He didn't land anything but he had a ball chasing the tuna and seeing the monster blues blitz a helpless school of bait. Left the boat on the island and will be back after them this weekend. Weather looks stable for the week.
