Maco's Bait & Tackle

July 16, 2018:
Twitch at Maco's Bait and Tackle was wired, fired and inspired about the Canal fishing which he described by saying, "They're back with a vengeance, brother!" Fishing alongside of him one night at pole 50 was his shop-mate, Matty, who scored a 40 on a Magic Swimmer while he was hooking-up on his Savage Sand Eels. He believes it is the same school that was here last year only bigger and badder, with fish reported up to 48 and rumored to be larger. The tinkers were bunched up in the Maritime end and were being pounded by stripers in the 20-pound class for hours. One customer had fluke up to 26 inches in the deeper water of Buzzards Bay west of Cleveland Ledge where some decent knuckle heads were also taken.

    The guys bringing mackerel to the west end are scoring on some decent fish from the 20- to 30-pound class making the trip to the east end to snag them a smart move. The Canal has been providing a decent bite in the early morning then again at night with the great supply of eels that are available from Maco's Bait and Tackle. The black sea bass bite has been decent, but the best action has been in upper western Buzzards Bay in the deeper water. Stop in to say hello to Jeff, Twitch and Dave who will steer you in the right direction on the fishing information they receive on an hourly basis.

    Dave had just returned from making a bait run for Maco's Bait and Tackle where customers are beginning to score more and larger fish on live eels. The first light bite in the west end has been good during the past few days and the black sea bass are still being caught but out in deeper water in western Buzzards Bay. They weighed-in a 25-pounder that came from the Canal somewhere near Bell Road.

    The action from pole 20 to the bulkhead was producing bass from 29 inches to a few in the 30-pound class for customers of Maco's Bait and Tackle according to a well-informed Matt. There were also a few legal fluke beginning to show in the west end and around the Mashnee Flats and the edges. The black sea bass fishing is still lights-out with big scup working the same bottom. A school of 3-pound blues were raising hell with the eels and soft baits of those fishing the west end and the area of the Maritime and the railroad bridge.

    The bass turned on again according to Twitch at Maco's Bait and Tackle with some good overnight action for guys fishing bait and jigs. There were numerous fish in the 20-pound class for one guy who began his casting in the west end around 4:00 AM, and he reported the action died shortly after sunrise. His brother Scott had fish up to 28 pounds from the west end a few hours after sunset. At the east end there are reports of tinker mackerel, squid and butterfish, something that should hold fish before they move up toward Plymouth. Savages and Kastmasters were hot on that pre-dawn bite. A girl working outside the west end in her kayak was rewarded with a 4-pound fluke and some sea bass for her efforts.
