DJ also Takes Road Trips

Martha’s Vineyard– Runs June 5-16. You can go anytime you want in that framework. You can go 2 days, 8 days or the entire 2 weeks. We stay in a beautiful old farmhouse on Chappaquiddick Island, there are 5 beds available. When they fill up the trip is full. So I ask you to book now. It is $100 per night and that includes room, some board, and all the fishing your heart desires with a couple schleps that knows the ropes of the Vineyard…well some of the ropes anyway. This is an easy, low-effort trip. Not a lot of walking, we drive the beaches day and night. Get out and fish. This trip is a BLAST!  Email me with interests and for details.
Cuttyhunk Island– Will run July 23-28. This is a hardcore trip. Just about all wetsuiting (you can wear waders if you wish). You can go for 3 nights (for $650) or 4 nights (for $800). This covers room, guiding, and some meals. You have to pay for breakfast on the porch each morning, and you have to prepare one meal for the group. You also have to pay for the ferry.  I am taking deposits, the first 4 guys, go. You can also pay down the trip over the next couple months. Let me know, as usual, first come first served.
Block Island– This trip will be in August, probably towards end of the month. Similar details to Cuttyhunk trip. Let me know of interest immediately, I have a lot of interest.

    Just a quick heads up. No T-shirt. and we only do fishing trips to the CCC.
    It is not a guided trip, just a bunch of buds hanging out.
