New England Heritage: Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass & Bluefish Tournament

The “Derby” is an annual Fall fishing tournament held in Sept and Oct on the Island of Martha’s Vineyard, MA. For 67 years, this nonprofit event has attracted thousands of anglers, young and old. Come fish the Derby! http://www.mvderby.com/

For 67 years, the “Derby” has been a time to renew friendships, share a cup of coffee and create memories that fuel the winters exaggerated fishing stories. It is a time when all are able to refocus on the natural beauty of this island sanctuary. A time to lessen one’s monthly commitments and enjoy the best the island has to offer. 67 years of great fishing, great friends, and great memories! Come to the Vineyard this year and fish the Derby!
