Lines in the water at first light and hot dogs for breakfast — it must be the annual kids trout tournament, sponsored by the Martha’s Vineyard Rod and Gun Club. Organizer Cooper Gilkes was on hand at Duarte’s Pond to take pictures of children and their catches, each fish was measured and recorded, and at the end of the morning winners posed with their trophies.
