60th Anniversary of the Martha's Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby

Huge Striped Bass

It was a rainy day out on the water and North Shore Charters was the only boat out fishing, that is when 12-year old Molly Fischer, a Martha's Vineyard native, caught a monster striper aboard "Slapshot 2". When all was said and done Molly weighed in the heaviest fish of the 60th Annual Martha's Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby, a 49.22 pound Striped Bass. Check out this photo of Molly's record catch.
