Question

Recommended Posts

Ok,so me and my step-dad are going out to a pond today, I scouted it yesterday and the water was pretty murky and muddy, I thought of using booyah pond magic spinners, and senkos around the spillway/brush etc, are those good choices?

also, it was muddy because of the weather, I be leave the mud washed down into the water from the banks, because some was a lot clearer then other parts.

Is the pond pressured much if so then I'd downsize even smaller 4 inch senko and inline spinners like rooster tails. I'd also try a shaky head or some other freak random lure you have. Sometimes pressured bass will hit the most odd thing in your tackle box

I don't use Senkos in muddy water. Because they have little action of their own, bass have to see them in order to hit them. In dirty water, I like lures the fish can feel like a single spin spinner bait with a big Colorado blade or maybe a chatterbait.

I agree with Scott....switch to a Chatterbait and Fin-S Fish trailer.

Am I reading the op wrong? I'm reading that some sections are muddy and some are clear? The muddy sections just recently got that way, which is not the normal water clarity? Or, there are no clear sections, just muddy.

 

I'm confused.

the water of the pond/lake in general is stained. but it has red mud kicked up around some parts from the recent weather.

IMHO, I would stay out of the muddy parts and fish the "normal" waters where you would have better success. Generally, the temporary discolored water will give the fish lock jaw. That's not saying that you won't catch fish in there, but to give yourself a better chance, I would fish the "normal" water conditions. A good spot is the mud line - the transition from mud to clear water. Cast into the muddy water and retrieve back into the clear(er) water. I've experienced a lot of success on that pattern and I will thank Denny Brauer for writing that one in his book.
