I don't have a list, but I don't have special baits for ponds. What works in lakes works in ponds and I choose lures based on cover and other factors that would be considered in other waters.

Anything you want.

Ponds are great places to try different baits during the year.

Plastic Worms
Swim Baits

All fished differently with different colors depending on the water clarity.

Just go out and experiment and have some fun. ;)

If it's a smaller pond that you can have full access from the bank Then I'm just tossing my chatterbaits. All day, All night. Only thing seem to work for me at this one pond I fish. From my boat I toss chatters, Wacky, and maybe some shallow cranks. Jig if needed.

The one pond I fish at night most of time with my chatter, I might even try some topwater at night just to see what happens.

Oh please dear lord let it be an 8 or more!!

For a pond I'll usually fish soft plastics, one because I'm do my best fishing with em and two because the ponds I fish at hold some nice ones, and nothing entices a nice bass like a soft plastic worm!

But to address your question, specifically:
1. Zoom U-Tail worm red shad, Texas Rigged
2. Strike King Bitsy Pond Minnow
3. 1/32 oz Johnson's Beetle Spin

The Bitsy Pond Minnow and a 1/32 oz Beetle Spin are for targeting whatever wants to hit em. They're good search style baits, and you sometimes catch massive bluegills on em, and I've heard crappie like em too!
Angling is a sport to be enjoyed with the utmost satisfaction. If one does not enjoy it, then one cannot understand it!

My best all around pond bait would be the beetle spin. I have lost a many to a lunker at the waters edge. The white with the red dot seems to be the best.

Depends a lot on the pond, they vary so much from pond to pond. I'd say for a majority of the ponds I fish it would be a spinnerbait, buzzbait, T-rigged plastic worm.

Can't narrow down to only 3. Beetle spin, Mann's Baby 1-, Lucky Craft Fat CB BDS 1, and Zoom finesse worm T-rigged with a light bullet weight are sure killers around here.
