Orvis vice chairman Dave Perkins sent in these photos and a report from Martha’s Vineyard, where he’s fishing this week:

Daytime sight-fishing for big stripers has been good while we wait for the night fishing to turn on. It’s been a lot like bonefishing: These fish were caught on the flats, and I was casting crab patterns.

Dave was fishing with Brice Contessa of Martha’s Vineyard Outfitters.

Sight-casting with crab patterns to big fish ghosting across sandy flats is perhaps the
most exciting way to catch striped bass.
