Squid Tautog and a few Striped Bass

On the freshwater front many anglers are having a great time casting gold spoons from shore for a nice trout from one of the many beautiful Cape Cod ponds. Shiners are always a choice bait and if in a boat, trolling a Rapala has been very productive. Bass fisherman have been doing well with rubber worms and metal spoons.

Some anglers have begun their 2022 salt water fishing season by fishing for squid out in Nantucket Sound. Reports in the shop have been of varying results. Some days and nights have been fruitful with full buckets and coolers of the ink squirting creatures that are so delicious while also making an excellent bait. While other reports have been lackluster with only half full buckets after battling cold, wind and rain for hours. But, a wise man once told me “You know how much you will catch if you don’t go fishing.” SO, get out there!

Here is Carl with a beautiful 25” striped bass that he safely caught and released.

For our Tautog anglers we have live green crabs in the fridge and Joe Baggs Lay Perfect jigs to get your bait to the bottom. I have talked with several customers who have done well fishing for tog in the canal. For our boaters, Colliers is definitely a rock pile to try your luck.

As for the Striped Bass, schoolies are starting to come into the inlets and harbors and we have many reports of a fish or 2 being caught in Centerville, Osterville and Cotuit areas. With a few more warmer days that report will change to lots of fish and some bigger ones too!

Remember that May 14th 9am at Keyes Memorial Beach in Hyannis we will host our 2nd annual Surfcasting Seminar. Register for this informative, fun and FREE event at our Hyannis location or now on our website.

Sports Port’s Pro Staffer, “Striper Mike” will lead the group with a rundown on proper gear and general surfcasting information. We will then take that info and put it to use by taking some casts from the beach. Bring your own gear or you are welcome to use rods and reels we will have on hand for the event.

All ages are welcome. This event is perfect for beginners but also helpful for the more experienced anglers who may want some helpful tips to improve their cast. We will have a few prizes to raffle off too, so register now!
