FRIDAY, SEPTEMBH, 14, 2012 VININARI) ( ;AZE&apos;I'I'E, MAI(I'I IS VINEYARI), MASS. SEVEN Bernie Arruda on the rock that bears his name. i :ii il iill i i i!:il !! il !ii/iili! i!iii!i Pictures by Mark Lovewell Though the fish were few for the taking, it was close quarters on Menemsha jetty. Lure of the uemy Calls Them All By MAId,: AIAN IDVEWEIJ, They came together at the end of the day Wednesday to catch fish. Backed by the glitter of tilst moving water, nlore than 20 anglers, most of them participants in the Martha's Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish I )erby, stood at the Ihr end of the Menemsha jetty casting their lures in close quarters. The sun was brilliant above the horizon. The Mencmsha buoy, a ringing bell, filled the air with sound. Ian Thurber, 31, a landscaper fi'om West l'isbur> arrived at 5 p.m. after a full day of work. "This is -one of many of my favorite places," he said. "When there are tat) fish, it is relaxing. When there are fish here, it is chaos," said Mr. Thurber. False albacore and bonito often swim in tight schools and the Menemsha jetty can get hectic when a school passes by. But on this lovely afternoon there were few lish. In lhcl, it seemed almost an accident when someone reeled one in. Chris Reimann, 49, of Oak Bhd[s spent the day dcnlolishing tile in a customer's laundry room. This was his treat after a long day, he said. Soon after, he received an accidemal treaL The point of his rod dropped and lie Ihe nexl ncrx.'ous five minutes he battled a false albacore. Mr. Reimann was assisted by lee Rogers, also oft )al< I{lult's, who grabbed a net and put it under the fish coming out of the water. Once caught, it was returned to the water. The fish, 19 to 2(1 inches in length, was too small to be entered in the derby. The nlinimum size for a false albacore -- also called an "albie" - is 25 inches long. Mr. Rcimann caught the fish with a lure called the Maria. The lure is more valuable than the fish, he said, and has been sold out for quite a while on the Vineyard. Moments later, an angler at the jetty on the Lobsterville side of the channel hooked a bonito. He quickly became the center of attention on both sides of the channel, leaving those on the Menemslaa side to surmise the implications of their chtscn spot. Bernie Arruda has questions of his own about his locatkm. 1 le sh)od at the end of the jetty on a rock that bares his name, but it wasn't he who painted the word "Bernie" there, he said. .In Edgartown, at the Memorial Wharf, a piece of timber at the edge of the dock bears a name painted in a similar style. That sign, painted in the same color, reads "Kathi" and recognizes the talents of Edgartown angler Kathi Pogoda. "l don't know who did this," Mr. Arruda said. Amy Vickers, a farmer from V'meyard Haven, trades her hoe for a rod. iiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiii!iifiii!i)i !iiiiiiiiiiiiiifili!i Chris Reimann and Joe Rogers of Oak Bluffs land a false albacore.
