Kettle Pond Bass Lures & Tackle

While most anglers associate Cape Cod with saltwater species such as stripers, bluefish and tuna, there’s plenty of freshwater action to be had in the Cape’s numerous kettle ponds. These glacial-formed waterbodies are filled with largemouth bass, as well as trout, pickerel and other panfish, and make a great option when conditions make it tough to fish the ocean.

In this video, we fish Slough Pond in Brewster with Chris Nashville of Goose Hummock Shops. We catch plenty of bass and pickerel that morning, and learn a lot about the Cape’s kettle pond fishery, including some of Nashville’s go-to lures and tackle.
