How To Catch Bass In My Pond

Recommended Posts

I'm fishing a pond that has a little bit of everything stomps and logs grass and it has a 20 drop in it and it's cold right now so the fish have slowed down and I've been told fish will be deep but I don't know what to use because this pond is muddy you can only see a few inches down so I'm not sure what to use because dropshot doesn't seem like it would get seen and I was watching a video and KVD said if the water isn't clear jerkbaits aren't even an option so what do I do

Try a black and blue jig with a big trailer in a dark color.  Drag it slowly around on the bottom, maybe you will get the attention of a good one.

Fish a single colorado bladed spinnerbait or bladed jig as slowly as you can reel and keep the blade moving. Probably help to put a bulky trailer on the back to help you be able to reel even slower, I like a pork frog for the added scent or put some Megastrike on a plastic trailer. A jig can be good too but a lot of ponds have too much junk on the bottom to fish them this time of year. Cold, muddy water is about as tough as it gets to get a fish to bite, good luck.

Live bait!

If the OP isn't against it, this would be my suggestion 100%. Minnow under a bobber around any cover in deeper water would be my pick.

Or get some live craw fish and a spinning rod, throw one out there and let him run around on the bottom a little and jerk him out from hiding every now and again!

A good flat sided crank is also a good way to go. A flat sided rattle bait will emit a lot of sound, being able to alert the fish to where your lure is and the tight wiggle is good for lethargic bass.

Cold chocolate milk is a challenge. I would be looking for somewhere else to fish.

I'm running into a similar difficulty with "my" ponds. One of my ponds is very shallow, and the fish have just absolutely shut off. I've tried everything, a jerkbait, spinnerbait, inline spinner, jig, ect. ect. and only caught one dink. On my other pond, my brother and I managed to catch 5 nice bass in two hours. All my luck so far (in both ponds) has been on jigs.

I would throw a spinner bait with two willow leaf blades in gold its so muddy that your just looking for a reaction so that would be your best bet. You can also throw a topwater bait around the stomps i would use a popper bait or walker bait probably something slower like a popper bait and you can also flip to the grass i would use a havoc pitboss in black and blue with 3/0 offset round bend hook with a 3/8 oz tungsten weight.

If I was jonesing for bass real bad I'd be using a senko, easy to fish, produces well and no real wrong way to fish it.
