Canal Bait & Tackle

November 13, 2017:
We spoke with Jeff at Canal Bait and Tackle who said the action was slowing down, but this week there was no shortage of school bass in the 12- to 24-inch class to be had. There are reports of mackerel and sea herring in the east end of the Canal. They are still building their famous Canal rods and they are available at their on-line store for anything you need including the new order of Super Strike lures they just received this week.

    We spoke with Bruce at Canal Bait and Tackle about the schoolie action in the Canal this past week, and he agreed that there was still action on schoolies and the occasional legal fish for those working the area of the Dolphins. There are also some tog being taken in the tanker cutout of the Canal near the power plant by those fishermen in the know.

    There is plenty of action in the Canal with loads of schoolies and some albies working the entire length for most of the past week. Jeff at Canal Bait and Tackle the stripers range from 18 to 39 inches. There is a ton of bait in the Canal with squid and mackerel in the east end. Mild weather looks like the action will continue for some time with fish still moving down from Plymouth and Boston.

    The word from Canal Bait and Tackle was about the number of small stripers in the Canal and the few large blues that had been reported right around the Herring Run early one morning. The fun is far from over with stripers still dropping down from Boston and Plymouth. Stop in to see them about a Canal custom rod or some of their Canal jigs.

    Despite less than fantastic action, Jeff at Canal Bait and Tackle and some friends enjoyed a very productive day in the Canal this week using the JoeBaggs mackerel Patriot Fish that produced stripers from schoolies up to fish in the 25-pound class which also ate those Gags eels and paddle tails fished slowly and close to the bottom. There are still some albies in the east end and plenty of small mackerel to hold most species there for a while until the next blow. So far peanut bunker has been the big attraction.
