As Yearly Derby Begins, Contestants Hope Four Different Species Will
Be on Line
By MARK ALAN LOVEWELL
In these waters there is not a more celebrated fish than the coastal
striped bass. Beginning Sunday, anglers in the Martha's Vineyard
Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby will begin their pursuit of bass,
bluefish, Atlantic bonito and false albacore. They will fish along the
Island's shoreline and in a variety of boats offshore.
They will pursue these four species for five full weeks, and
they'll do it with passion.
