In this post we'll go underwater to watch brown and rainbow trout as they chase down and attack a variety of lures.
During these trips I was kayak fishing two different kettle ponds in the towns of Sandwich and Brewster.
I've found kayak fishing Cape Cod's kettle ponds to be a peaceful experience - especially right now with everything going on in the world.
So without further ado, let's get started with the videos!
Brown Trout On Attack!
I'll start by sharing a clip that was filmed in Brewster this past Wednesday April 16th. During this trip I recorded exciting underwater footage of brown trout attacking an in-line spinner.
In-line spinners are highly effective and popular lures. They work very well on rainbow, tiger, brook and brown trout. The vibrating action and flash of the lure can attract trout from yards away.
School of Rainbows
Over the past week I have logged-in about 10 hours of underwater filming, and one thing I've noticed is trout often travel in schools.
This next clip was filmed in the town of Sandwich yesterday April 19th. As you'll see in the video, I was fishing Power Bait on the bottom, when a school of 18 rainbows passed overhead.

Intense Rapala Action
When trolled at high rate of speed the jointed Rapala is capable of producing aggressive reactions from trout and other freshwater species.
Rapalas are used all over the world and the 2 inch models are perfect for trout on Cape Cod.
This next clip was filmed in Brewster on Wednesday April 16th. Check it out and LMK what you think by commenting below!
It's been wonderful to be on the water again after the winter off-season! Freshwater ponds are extremely peaceful places to be this time of year.

I am having a blast filming these trout, and even more fun sharing the videos here on My Fishing Cape Cod!
And if you enjoy freshwater fishing, then be sure to check out our Freshwater Fishing forum which has been very active lately.
On another note, I hope you are able to safely get outside and experience some peace and tranquility during this time.
After all, fishing has always been a good social distancing activity.
