Red Top Sporting Goods

January 22, 2018:
AJ from Red Top Sporting Goods said the ice fishing was very good for a while, but all good things came to an end quickly when a thaw followed by a deluge erased the ice. During the artic chill they had a few state award qualifying pin fish in the form of a 5-pound, 4-ounce pickerel and a couple of large yellow perch. The shop is well-stocked and ready to get their customers ready for another fantastic year on the Canal. The shop will be well represented at the shows this year with booths at the Boxboro Show, the RISAA and the MSBA show in March. AJ and Tom along with their staff are also preparing and adding inventory for their much anticipated, annual spring tackle sale.

    We spoke with Allen from Red Top Sporting Goods who said the shop has been busy with Christmas shoppers and people taking advantage of their sale items at the end of the year. The Canal fishing is now just a fond memory, but when the ditch shut down a few weeks ago a few sharpies began taking holdover bass from Buttermilk Bay. Tom and AJ expressed their thanks for your patronage and look forward to serving all your need in the coming season.

    AJ from Red Top Sporting Goods reports that saltwater fishing has been a little on the slow side in Buzzards Bay. There have been schoolies around, and the tog bite has been decent for those still sailing. A slug of horse mackerel moved into the Canal over the weekend, but there have been no signs of big bass or blues feeding on them. Freshwater fishing has been good producing plenty of rainbow trout on PowerBait and spoons. Largemouth bass, perch, and pickerel can be caught by using slower-moving lures or live shiners this time of year as well.

    Hayden from Red Top Sporting Goods said many of the Canal regulars are still picking away at small bass around the east-end, but they realize they are nearing the end of the run. There were plenty of small bass moving out of the estuaries, and on Wednesday they caught some legal bass in mid Canal as fish in the 29- to 33-inch class moved through with a bunch of schoolies. Freshwater fishing is taking over, and they have all the bait and gear you need to extend your season.

    The Canal is far from dead and with reports from Boston and Plymouth Harbor of schoolies and a few legal bass moving through there are quite a few guys taking schoolies from the east end and from the area of the Scusset Pier. Hayden from Red Top Sporting Goods said there was a 42 and a 34-inch class fish taken at the Herring Run a few days ago, but the majority of the stripers are sub-legal schoolies.
