Brian, open ended query that should give you enough information to scramble your brains.
When I go to my double secret pond where we catch five and up ladies all the time, here is what I love to throw during the year:
Jig and Pig - The big ladies love 'em but fishing is slow so unless you have patience throw something else. Baitcaster presentation.
Senkos - Great bait in a pond. Throw it wacky rigged. You can use a baitcaster or a spinning rig for Senkos.
Shaky Head - This technique is also outstanding. Use a green pumpkin or watermelon Zoom Trick Worm or a Swamp Crawler on a light shaky head jig head on a spinning rig and have some fun. Water is clear use watermelon; if stained go with the green pumpkin. Keep it simple.
Drop Shot - Rig it up and throw it out. No need to drop it straight down as if you are on a river or lake. Finesse worms in the color of your choice work great. Just remember to lift the rod softly over your head to set the drop shot hook.
Baby Brush Hogs - If the pond has any wood, grass or pads consider throwing a weedless Texas rigged Baby Brush Hog. Spinner or baitcaster.
Crankbaits - Bandit 100s style usually work great in ponds. Sexy Shad or Chartreuse with Blue Back for starters and then change colors as you wish. Baitcaster.
Shad Raps - Silver with black back or silver with blue back, depending on cloud cover. Spinning rig works them great.
There are so many baits out there that the guys will scramble your mind. Keep a log of each trip so you will know what was productive and under what circumstances. Check out the log when you go back to the pond, especially the weather conditions you memorialized in your report.
Senkos are so much fun to throw as they give you a rush when you see that line start to move. Same with the shaky head.
Remember to walk about 50-feet away from the bank when moving around a pond; wear your polarized sunglasses; always have your needle nose pliers to remove the hooks in your pocket or tackle bag; and don't go overboard with rods and baits.
Also leave a note at home as to where you will be and the time you are expected to be home. This is very important anytime you go fishing at a pond or in a boat. We call this our Float Plan.
Good luck and let us know what worked and post a few pics of the big ones you nail.
Ignorance can be corrected. Stupid lasts a lifetime.
