Martha's Vineyard Dreaming

I just got back from a 5 day trip to the island. While searching for SBFT off Nomans we came across large areas of nervous water on a slick calm day. As we cautiously approached we were astonished to find huge schools of 25 to 35 inch stripers slowly swimming, shoulder to shoulder (do stripers have shoulders?), with their mouths agape. After throwing every northeast fly pattern without success, we finally could see what they we eating. Krill. In a frantic stiper fever, I searched for my Bahamas flybox. Tying on a Crazy Charlie with small black eye resulted in immediated action. After catching between 25 and 30 fish we had to leave to eat and sleep. What sweeet dreams.
