March 1st began meteorological spring, the sun is higher in the sky, daylight is increasing every day and Cape Cod’s pond fishery is on the move. The state will be stocking (and has actually already begun!) many of these ponds with thousands of trout early in March and the largemouth and smallmouth bass will soon begin cruising around in their pre spawn state of mind.

This is a great opportunity for anglers especially the many striped bass and bluefish fishermen to break out their freshwater gear and get out on the many pristine Cape Cod ponds. Stop by Sports Port Bait and Tackle to update your gear - Amy, Frank, Morgan, Gary and Nick are ready with useful information to help you catch your first fish of 2022.

Mid November ended the striped bass season but November through February provided steady action for trout and even a few bass. March is off to a fast start with more trout on the menu and with some basic trout lures or some nice lively shiners you can get at Sports Port, you could catch a fish of a lifetime from shore. Fresh air, great walking exercise and a very healthy and wonderful way to enjoy a few hours fishing on Cape Cod.

Here are a couple of February and early March trout, Tim with his scrappy holdover brown trout and Mike with a solid 19 inch holdover rainbow trout.

Tight lines everyone and hope to see you on the water.
