best winter golf course pond lure/color?

Recommended Posts

I found a new pond that i started float tube fishing here in southern california.  the pond is surrounded by tullies, maybe 60x20 yds, and maybe 8 ft deep in the middle, maybe a lil deeper, and very stained and murky.  the temperature here has been around 55-65 in the day and 40ish at night so the water is probably pretty cold and it felt that way through my neoprene waders.

what is the  best lure to be using right now?  I caught a 2# kinami gycb grub in watermelon, but that was the only fish of the day.  i keep reading about jigs so i picked up a couple and plan to use  gycb kreatures, zoom baby brush hogs or sweet beavers as trailers or I will T-rig them if too much weeds get caught on the jig.

What would you use and how would you use it for this pond?

I would use mostly soft plastics and jigs in natural colors.

I really like pumpkinseed, junebug, and watermelon colors in murky waters.

I've never tried them, but I've heard great things about the GYCB Fat Ika, maybe you can try that one. Me, personally, I would probably use a smaller jig (try a Strike king 1/4oz bitsy bug/flip) with a slow moving trailer attached, such as the Strike King Denny Brauer chunks, but some guys are starting to like more action in colder water, so you can also try the rage chunks. I've had good luck this year on the rage chunks. Weeds shouldn't really be too much of a problem with the jigs, if you feel some weeds on, you can easily shake it loose.  I would know, I fish a canal with some of the nastiest coon tail moss you could imagine.  Best of luck to you.

I'd try a little black beaver, t-rigged w/ a bead.

I'll probably answer "Black" whenever asked about a color for a jig or soft plastic, especially in low light situations such as murky/stained water. A combination of Black and Chartreuse or Black and Blue are options as well.

I'd Texas rig with a bead or select a jig w/ a rattle. Since visibility may be limited in dark waters a bass may depend on it's other senses such as it's lateral line.

I just fished the pond today in the tube for two hours from about 2pm-4, got skunked. I fished a black/red flake GYCB Kreature, and black/red sweet beaver, and watermelon GYCB Grub on a T rig, but also tried a split shot rig , mainly pitching towards the tules that surround the out border of the pond. It was very cold in there today, and the wind was blowing hard. Made a few casts towards the middle of the pond then hopped and dragged as well.

I think its just too cold for those bass, I'm hoping it will pick up when the weather heats up. What is a better tactic- pitch toward and parallel to tules or focus more on the middle of the pond?
