Thick Weeds in Shallow Ponds

Recommended Posts

I fish a university pond and recently, with the warm weather, it's become really overgrown with hydrilla and filamentous algae.

The pond is probably 3 acres total, shaped like a rectangle. It's deepest end is on one end of the pond at maybe 5 feet but the rest of the pond is 2-3 feet. The other end of the pond is around 1 feet deep, and is weed-free and full of small gravel because of a small spring, but the bottom is mud and leaves everywhere else with no real structure. 

The hydrilla grows within a few inches of the surface in most areas but the pond surface is now covered in a film of thin green algae. 

I've had a few bites on hollow body frogs and flukes but the weeds make it hard to fish many baits. I've tried swim jigs but even they get hung up. 

What baits/techniques would work here?

Thanks

Senkos and Zoom Ultravibe Speed Worms should work in the small pond you described.
