Sports Port

April 23, 2018:
The majority of the action has been in freshwater according to Ben at The Sports Port who said shiners and Power Bait were the top choices. There was word of some squid off Falmouth and Hyannis, but no one has brought any into the shop as yet. They have a good supply of seaworms and crabs and are ready for stripers and tautog to move in.

    A combination of shiners and Power Bait are the top sellers at The Sports Port where Ben was dishing out trout bait and gear all weekend. Most of the customers have been catching rainbow trout and a few larger ones recently put in by the stocking trucks. No one has provided any information on tautog or squid, but there is hope both species will begin to show by the last week of April.

    Ben was dishing out shiners at The Sports Port on a cold and windy morning when we spoke with him this week. He said the weather is not cooperating, but they have a few hard-charging customers who won't let a little thing like wind chill get in the way of hooking a few trout or largemouth bass. It won't be long before word of the first tautog show up off Nobska and Bishops and there are reports of some holdover stripers in the upper bays feeding into the sound that are beginning to move out towards the jetties.

    PowerBait is king at The Sports Port but they have loads of worms, shiners and all sorts of artificial lures that tempt both trout and largemouth. The shop is open seven days a week and despite the popularity of trout Ben said there are quite a few sharpies looking forward to fishing the west end of Buzzards Bay around the third week of April hoping for their first striper of the season. There are also a few guys looking forward to the arrival of tautog on the rockpiles of Bishops and Clerks and other structure in Nantucket Sound down to Nobska Point.

    The word from Bill at The Sports Port was of cold, windy weather that had encircled their section of the Cape, but he was celebrating the first day with temperatures over 40 degrees in 13 days. The trout fishing continues to be the hot topic and number one pursuit for their customers with word of some very large brood trout stocked in local ponds. Bill is still trying for this season's first big brown but is happy to catch and release rainbows in the process. The shop is open and well-stocked with all your fishing needs.
