Falmouth Bait & Tackle

November 13, 2017:
Jack at Falmouth Bait and Tackle said the numbers of schoolies and micro bass are declining, but there are reports from the rivers and harbors of small fish working bait and being taken on small lures. Jack has been hunting brown trout in the evening and pre-dawn hours and doing well with stocked fish and a few holdovers. His friend had a jumbo brown measured in pounds and not inches this mid-week and they used a combination of bait and lures to hook the browns.

    Jack from Falmouth Bait and Tackle said the schoolie striper fishing is still a good bet with the occasional 25- to 34-inch stripers swimming with the little guys, but these keepers have been taken by those people still using eels at dawn and after sunset. Jack has been taking advantage of some very good freshwater fishing and is looking for more northwest wind to blow more of the sea ducks in so he can begin his winter specialty. There are reports of some big rafts of eider in and around Plymouth Bay.

    The word from Jack at Falmouth Bait and Tackle was of continued productive striper fishing all along the Falmouth beaches that Jack worked last week. One customer casting eels hooked up to a 37-inch bass on Friday, and the word is there are plenty of smaller bass in the harbors and rivers, although the best action for the larger fish has been on the night tides. One of their customers headed offshore in a 35-foot boat and with the wind picking up while we were talking it might be a long, slow ride back home.

    Jack from Falmouth Bait and Tackle said they were selling a lot of eels this weekend as sharpies are locating and catching some good-sized keepers. He has made several trips using eels and over the past few days had 28 bass with five legal fish. On Friday he had 10 stripers with two legal bass all from the Sound beaches. There is loads of bait and plenty of schoolies and much smaller bass in almost every river. The offshore action has been hot around the Sword with boats catching and releasing several giants which were revived and sent on their way.

    Jack at Falmouth Bait and Tackle told of some good striper fishing with lots of schoolies and micro bass along with keepers for those sharpies using eels at dawn and after sunset. Just about everyone is pleased with the numbers of the schoolies in almost every river system in their area with most of those fish from 12 to 18 inches and active. There are some blues reported on the Shoe and along the shore from Nobska up to the shores of the Elizabeth's. The tuna fishing has been good east of Chatham but the giant season is closed resulting in a lot of 80-inch fish being released.
