A senko or a ribbon tail worm, or just about any worm works on ponds for me. Also, the pond I've been fishing only has blue gills and bass. Lately been seeing a ton of little gills swimming around and so I tried a 3.5in yum money minnow, in blue gill of course. They were smashing it when it was warmer.

Most of my fishing is on the larger public waters. However a friend took me to his "secret" pond last week and I had a blast with some old school lures I have not used for years. I started out with a Crazy Crawler and ended up throwing a Lazy Ike. Great fun and a 5lb fish on a Crawler I'd still as addictive as 20 years ago.

Stanley Ribbits cast parallel to the bank. Work it like a buzz bait. You can find out really quick where the bass are. Can't beat top water.

It really depends on what cover is there. Spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, shallow/waking cranks, and spooks work well in spring, before the weeds come up. During the spawn jigs, wacky worms, and drop shot plastics get it done. Later in summer, most of the ponds I fish get so choked, only a rat or frog will work.

Everything in moderation.

Spinnerbaits are my top producer in ponds by far. Second are super flukes in smoking Shad color and third is either a weightless Texas rigged Senko or a worm like the 7” rage Thumper our a good old 7” green pumpkin power worm. Buzzbaits occasionally as well.

Really, nothing different than for a lake. I'll use any lure that seems right for the conditions. I don't know, it just seems to me that a 100-yard lily pad bed is the same in a 50-acre pond as a 5000-acre lake.
