Red Top Sporting Goods

April 23, 2018:
Details of some remarkable catches from Red Top Sporting Goods were courtesy of Hayden who told of two monster pre-spawn largemouth brought into the shop by the same angler this week. Dylan Powne registered a 9-pound, 2, ounce largie on Thursday and topped off his week on Saturday morning with another 7-pound, 8, ounce fish. He has a large live well to transport the fish to and from his productive location. Long Pond in Plymouth gave up a jumbo 3-pound, 8, ounce bookie along with several other notable browns and bows. There are herring in all the runs but only a very few were seen in the Canal herring run due to the extremely cold-water temperatures.

    AJ was helping trout fishermen re-stock on bait and tackle for their outings on a sunny but windy morning. The success rate in freshwater has been very good and some of the customers from Red Top Sporting Goods have been sharing their photos of good-sized rainbows and some nice brown trout. No reports of any herring activity in the local runs, but that should change with some warmer weather with baitfish showing up in the Wareham run by next weekend.

    It was another busy weekend at Red Top Sporting Goods because when I was speaking to Hayden about the fishing report the murmur of the crowd could be heard in the background. Despite the weather; being out on a trout stream or a bass lake has a way of taking the edge off the cold and gets one thinking about the arrival of herring in the Canal run with that event soon followed by the arrival of the first scouts that head for the Weweantic River which marks the beginning of the striper season in these parts. Many customers are looking forward to April 15th and the opening of the haddock season.

    We caught up with Tom from Red Top Sporting Goods who said the shop was filled with customers who were getting ready for the arrival of the first stripers in a few weeks and his knowledgeable crew is aware that the Weweantic has usually been the first place where those scouts are reported. They have been busy accommodating the freshwater fishermen who are taking advantage of a good trout stocking and the presence of a good number of largemouth bass now moving inshore. They have some really great buys from one of the largest inventories of plugs, rod and reels in the area.

    We spoke with Hayden from Red Top Sporting Goods who said their crew was at the Mass Bass Show this Saturday and Sunday and he reported on how well the people at the Providence fishing show received them two weeks ago. There are a lot of people out fishing for trout in Big Sandy and Spectacle Pond where some nice bows and a few early morning and evening browns have been taken. They haven't filled out any forms for state award pins since the stocking, but there was at least one 4-pound rainbow taken so far.
