A striped bass on the move

Striped Bass Below the Surface

A flash of silver in the deep
A striped bass on the move
He swims with grace and power and speed
A master of the groove

He darts and dodges, weaves and turns
He knows the ocean well
He chases prey and mates and spurns
The fisherman's hook and bell

He lives below the surface calm
Of Oak Bluffs' sunny shore
He's seen the boats and yachts and swarms
Of tourists by the score

But he prefers the quiet dark
The stripers are his kin
He feels the tide and hears the shark
He loves his life within
