    Hayden said there were a diminishing number of Red Top Sporting Goods customers working the Canal in this less than hospitable weather and a few of them have been rewarded with a schoolie or two as the last trickle of bass moves down from up north. They have had quite a few patrons buying freshwater bait and lures and reporting on good fishing in the Peters and Mashpee-Wakeby ponds with good-sized rainbow trout. Check out their web page for up-coming sales, perhaps on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

    Our pal AJ at Red Top Sporting Goods said the beat goes on as the stripers are still trickling around and up into the east end. These fish are mostly on the small side, but they are providing much needed action for the hardies who refuse to give up until every last single fish has moved through. There were a few guys who reported taking tog in close to the rip-rap of the Canal and a few others who said there were squid in the Sandwich Basin. Greg also sent us an email this week, saying that "This week we had fish on the east end of the Canal. There seems to be a little bit of everything for bait: mantis shrimp, macks, and sea herring had schoolies and low 30-inch bass blitzing at first light."

    The Canal has been very good place to be this week according to our friend Hayden at Red Top Sporting Goods who said his co-worker Jacob has been tossing small pencils to schoolies that are working bait in the east end. Schoolies and the occasional fish to 30 inches have been working their way down from Plymouth and feeding on small bait fish. There were a few tautog taken in the Canal rip-rap by regulars who know which holes to bait. The shop has all the bait and information you need to make your next trip successful.

    There was some decent action in the east end of the Canal this week with mostly schoolies on peanut bunker with attendant photos of some legal fish in the 30-inch class. Most of that action was on jigs and paddle tails fished close to the bottom. Hayden from Red Top Sporting Goods said there were a few photos of fish in the 20-pound class as well. The tog bite in the west end of Buzzards Bay, up along the West Falmouth rockpiles towards Woods Hole has been producing limits of tog that are at least a few inches over the minimum legal size. One of the tog they saw was a 10-pound-plus white-chinner that came off the West Falmouth shore.
