Red Top Sporting Goods

November 12, 2018:
For customers of Red Top Sporting Goods who have continued to visit the east end their striper season has been far from over. There has been a steady flow of stripers moving down from the Boston Harbor area with reports of keeper stripers off Cohasset this past week. Mark said there were some legal tog being taken in and around the Maritime ship with larger ones along the west Falmouth shore for anyone rugged enough to brave the weather. Peters and Long Pond in Plymouth have been giving up some nice bass and trout and Mark recommends his Senko lures which have been very productive. The shop will announce details of a Black Friday sale and a place where people can leave a wish list for their family and friends to get the perfect gift items.

    Despite the wind and rain AJ from Red Top Sporting Goods said they had a pretty good week in the shop and casting in the Canal before work. The Canal, although said to be quiet, was anything but to a group of anglers in the know. On almost every morning they had schoolie action with at least a few fish in the mid 30-inch class while fishing jigs. One of the anglers sent along a photo of a fish that went 38 pounds on the Boga Grip. Although the fish did come to the top early the best action for the larger fish was along the bottom. The freshwater fishing has been good and getting better with some bigger trout and hefty largemouth bass and pickerel. Bob Viella and his pal Ron Rudowsky fished Long Pond last week and had lots of rainbows which they trolled up. Most of those fish went back with the exception of a few for one of Bob's old friends.

    Hayden from Red Top Sporting Goods has been getting cold and wet but finds that is worthwhile suffering for the fun he and his friends are having chasing schoolies and the occasional striper up to 38 inches that have come from the east end. The word from guys north of them is that there are still some decent fish in the pipeline and moving down to the Canal. There would be more guys togging if the wind let up, but seas in all the favorite tog hot spots have been too heavy for fishing. Thanks to freshwater fishing the guys who have not given up are having fun with trout and some nice largemouth bass.

    The Canal was hot and cold this week according to AJ from Red Top Sporting Goods who said the last 14 days had winds over 20 knots and plenty of rain. The tautog fishing has been taking up the slack in western Buzzards Bay, but with the gusty winds this weekend the seas on that bay were running between 5 and 7 feet. Thankfully there were plenty of guys who hit the trout ponds and found that pickerel and largemouth bass were also interested in the shiners they were floating. There are still bass moving down from Plymouth, and most of them should head into the Canal.

    With little fanfare the Canal has been giving up quality fish for the guys who have been hitting the ditch on a regular basis. Tyler at Red Top Sporting Goods said there had been reports and weigh-ins of stripers from teen size up to 41 pounds from the Canal this past week. AJ said the early-morning topwater bite was usually smaller bass from sub-legal to 30-inches, but the guys working jigs along the bottom were scoring some strong 20- to 30-pound stripers. All week long there has been a steady movement of stripers moving into and feeding in the ditch. The crab sales have been hot with a very good tautog bite going in in western Buzzards Bay.
