Sports Port

July 16, 2018:
The Century rod folks were at The Sports Port this weekend demonstrating their line of rods, and Amy said the fishing has been very good with a number of customers travelling to the Canal to cash in on the terrific bass bite where their regular, Gabriel, had stripers in the 30-pound class. They are selling eels which have proven to be a reliable bass attractor even during the daytime. The blues finally made an appearance on the south side and Horseshoe Shoal has been the location of some great surface and jigging action on choppers in the 6- to 8-pound class. Fluke are not that widely being hunted, but a few good flatties have been taken in mid-Nantucket Sound.

    Eels are a hot item at The Sports Port and customers were reporting good results with eels at Barnstable where some believe the bass are only eating mackerel. Ben said they are also hearing about blues on the Nantucket Shoal rips, and we heard about a fishermen who was taking some stripers from Point Gammon casting surface lures before sunrise. Despite the heat the freshwater fishermen are still taking fish and the shop has all types of bait, lures and all sorts of sweetwater tackle. If you are interested in shell fishing stop in and ask Amy, Ben or Bill about the gear they have in stock.

    Customers were waiting for Ben to arrive at The Sports Port over the weekend as he normally gets there well before their opening time. He was dishing out sea worms, local squid and fresh mackerel for chunking. The bite has been good almost all over with the Canal producing fish of keeper size for two of his regulars. Both sides of the Cape are producing with Barnstable giving up legal fish taking live and chunked mackerel and the tip of P-Town a crowded but productive location. Bearses shoal is another hot spot and with good weather a place where many anglers have been scoring with keepers. Still not a lot of news on blues except for the occasional severed paddle tail. Although a few customers have reported some choppers on Horseshoe and Succonnesset Shoal.

    There was a long line at The Sports Port where Ben was doling out bait from their large and diverse selection. The percentage was about 70-percent saltwater and 30 freshwater because trout and black bass are still providing action. There were reports of stripers from school-sized fish to small keepers in the Centerville River, and a few guys are still doing well with fluke and black sea bass but there were no particulars provided. The Canal produced a few keepers for two patrons who fish there regularly.

    There were a few customers of The Sports Port that fished the Canal with mixed results. Some caught fish at night in the east end while the daytime anglers didn't see much in the way of action. There are blues along the beaches from Poppy to Centerville and in the rips of Nantucket Sound. Ben said the freshwater fishing is still going strong in local waters with many still taking trout, bass and pickerel. Ben said they are well-stocked with shell fishing gear and big collection of saltwater plugs.
