Sports Port

November 13, 2017:
It was a frosty morning at The Sports Port where Ben was still doling out freshwater bait and gear as trout and black bass fishing has improved with the cold snap. There was a blitz at Craigville beach this week with loads of schoolies and a few good-sized albies in that mix. They are selling more rakes, baskets and shell fishing gear these past few weeks.

    Although there are still plenty of customers of The Sports Port changing over to freshwater fishing with good trout and black bass, and there are still some saltwater diehards catching bass in all the rivers and harbors along Nantucket Sound and up inside of the Canal. While most of the stripers have been fish in the 18- to 25-inch class, there were at least two keepers in the 30-inch class that he was aware of. Shell fishing is on the menu now, and the shop has all the equipment necessary to get you going.

    A few customers of The Sports Port told Ben they were still catching stripers in the Canal and he also has word of small linesiders working the harbors and inlets from Hyannis to Nobska Point. There was an early morning blitz off Dowsers Beach on Saturday morning with loads of fish in the 18- to 25-inch class with only a few guys out taking advantage of the action. One customer showed up to weigh in a 25-pounder he caught from the beach on an eel, but Ben said he was not very talkative.

    The busy First Lady of The Sports Port provided the fishing report this weekend and it was about loads of stripers that are holding in all the rivers and harbors and are still moving down from Chatham and the Monomoy rips. Some customers have been into blues that are either cocktail-size or just a tad larger working the Sound beaches and working the huge concentrations of baitfish in those areas. Albies are still high on the list of top-notch species that are providing thrills on light tackle, and now that the fall stocking of trout has begun many customers are switching over to freshwater for rainbows and the occasional brown trout.

    Most of the traffic into The Sports Port on a windy, rainy Saturday morning were freshwater fishermen purchasing bait and lures then heading to their favorite bass and trout haunts. Ben said there were albies in the Centerville area that were eating popping plugs and other topwater lures. Quite a few people were looking for green crabs which have been difficult to some by over the past few days.
