Menemsha jetty could be the most popular fishing destination during the derby. No matter how the fish are biting, the scenery is worth the trip. The channel buoy bouncing in the waves rings its bell, creating a soothing backdrop to the pursuit of striped bass. And when an angler lands a catch, the neighboring fishermen break into applause. The jetty is a place where strangers meet and become friends swapping tales about the one that got away.
