Cape Cod Largemouth Bass Fishing From Shore During October

Ryan Collins

In this video I am freshwater largemouth bass fishing from shore on Cape Cod during October of 2018. I am with my rescue dog Rosie, who I am discovering does amazingly well during fishing trips.

She basically stays with me the entire time off the leash and doesn't wander off anywhere which is great. 

The largemouth bass fishing was also great during this trip, with many small ones caught around submerged timber and especially lily pads (which are quickly dying off now that it's getting cold here on Cape Cod).

The lure used during this video is a broken-back Rapala that was passed down to me from a 75 year old fishing friend of mine. Please click play below to watch!

I’m fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I’ve been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!

  1. Nice relaxing video Ryan. I’ll be trying ponds first time this year, how about a MFCC gathering/meeting some time soon?

    1. Sounds great Igor. LMK if I can help with anything freshwater related. There are some nice places to try fishing up in the Wellesley area as well. I have caught some really nice largemouths in the past at Noanet Pond and Powisset Pond in Dover.

      Lauren and I will definitely be organizing more MFCC meetups! However we are heading to Mexico soon for the rest of November, then we’re home for December and then leaving for Costa Rica January-early February. So a lot going on but I am very much looking forward to hosting more meetups at FV Restaurant!

      1. Well have a blast down there! I nearly managed to book myself for CR with you… work. Next time around I will be on it as soon as you have the dates.
        Hello to L:)

  2. Sweet video Ryan. Will give fresh water a go this fall

    1. Awesome Jean!

      Shoot me a message if I can help in any way with pond recommendations etc. 👍🏻

  3. Great time to be in the woods. Walking trail 5 today at Sandy Neck.

    1. Watch out for ticks, Jake, Ryan, and Rosie!

  4. Rosie sure is a great fishing companion!
    With all those little Bass there must be plenty of forage in that pond. I wonder what is available? Also I bet if you used a baby bass lure or live lined a yellow perch at any drop off you would find some bigger bass.

    1. I will definitely be going back to this pond with a heavier setup and larger lures. I am sure there must be some bigger largemouths in there.

      1. How far from the road is it? I’ve got a perfect boat for that pond 😉

        1. It’s actually a public water source so I don’t think boats of any kind are allowed. I did see a photo of your new boat on Instagram though andit looks sweet! However shoot me a text if you want and I can let you know where the pond is. Bit of a hike from your house.

  5. Great little video Ryan! Loved the underwater footage. Rosie is so cute! Looking forward to reading the attached links to keep us all going thru the winter! I feel very fortunate to have a house in Brewster! So many good spots near us! Thanks!

    1. So many great ponds in your town Leslie. Definitely plenty of freshwater action in your neck of the woods to get you through the winter 🎣
