12:06 action heats up
Went back to Martha’s Vineyard for a week of fishing the Derby with 5 of my friends for the first week of October. Day one was very tough with heavy rain and wind so I did no filming whatsoever, Day 2 we fished from shore all day and it was brutally slow, I did get one Albie and saw only a couple others caught all day but it was a very long day with no real action to film.
I was using my shimano sustain 4000fe for the first 2 days and sadly the reel started malfunctioning, the anti-reverse slipped every time I hooked up and now the reel is history. Luckily my buddy Bill had a spare clash 4000 which I bought off him and has performed very well.
This is footage from Monday, our 3rd day there, and the weather was very nice allowing us to get out into Vineyard Sound and fish Dogfish Bar in our Kayaks. Dogfish Bar is a well known spot where a large sand bar exists and drops off into 50’+ of water. The morning was very slow with few if any albies seen, paddled past a bouy and found a large school of Blue Runners and another type of jack that im not 100% on ID. I cut out a bunch of the action as the bell on that bouy had annoying ring to it, but it was mostly just lots of blue runners and seabass. We made our way further out until we got to Dogfish bar with little to no action. It started off slow and I ended up dropping an epoxy jig down to the bottom to mess around with scup and seabass when I hit my first Albie (on the bottom in 55′ of water), which ended up being foul hooked in the belly, an awesome surprise. After that I ended up blind casting an SP minnow along the ledge and found 5 more albies and a bluefish. Eventually the action slowed to a halt and we called it a day.
Stay tuned for the rest of the weeks footage.
