Trout on the Attack | New Underwater Footage

ryan collins my fishing cape cod breakfast


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! ๐ŸŸ

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!

In Conclusion

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. 

Tight lines! ๐ŸŽฃ

  1. Fantastic videos! i was wondering if fresh water fish traveled in schools….you answered that question for me. I also noticed you had quite a fast retrieve going on! I also noticed that you were tieing directly to the lure. I was out there twice this week, 3 different ponds! No luck but always enjoy being out there! The wind was tough these past few days. Looking forward to getting my kayak out there. Thanks Ryan! Great job as always!

    1. I was really surprised to see that school of rainbows. I think I counted 18 rainbows in that one school. There is always something new to learn in the fishing world. And with regards to your latest trout adventures, I am sure your luck will turn for the better soon. Feel free to private message me in the forum if you need some help with spots. Gluck out there this week! ๐ŸŸ

  2. Hey Ryan, Really enjoying your kayak trout videos.. I have to ask what your set up is for filming while trolling. i can’t wait to try it for king salmon trolling! — Tom

    1. Hey Tom, glad you like the trout videos! I am using the Spydro camera to capture these shots. I think it could work great for king salmon trolling!

      1. thanks Ryan. Spydro on order!

        1. Awesome Tom! LMK when it arrives!

  3. Coming down late this week and early next to fish the ponds for Bass and Trout on the outer Cape. I’ll let you know how it went.

    1. Sounds good Shawn. I hope you get some nice weather. I’ve been meaning to try tossing some big swimbaits for largemouths down Cape. Good luck and I’ll be interested to hear how things go! ๐ŸŸ

  4. Great videos showing that the trout are both plentiful and happy to take a variety of lures. The best part is it’s a way to get out to the house and to be safe in these crazy times.

    1. Thanks Ron. Trout fishing is definitely a great excuse to get outside. On another note, I hope your drone flying is going well! โœˆ๏ธ
