Fishing Submergd Grass

Recommended Posts

Ok so there is a small pond close to my house with lots of grass. I'm not sure what type but it seems like a lesser version of hydrilla. I know swim-baits are the obvious answer and they do work there but I was wondering what a good alternative would be to slow down on a colder fall day? Also, not sure if you can see in the picture but it drops off pretty deeply.

Looks a little like some of the strip pits I fish occasionally where a wacky rig does very well.

To slow down?,... in fall?  Id try a topwater, or a floating jerkbait

Wacky worms. Sqaurebills may also be what you're looking for. Or maybe even soft plastic jerk baits.

I am a former Tallahassee pond hopper.  Where is that?  I may have fished it.

I thought it was.  I lived on the 17th hole (Congressional Drive) through middle and high school, had a 14' Jon Boat and fished it extensively.  My parents still own a lakefront lot on Amanda Mae Ct so I fish it when I am in town.  I was actually down there last weekend.  It did not look like that much grass behind their lot.  What part of the lake is that picture?

Do you have a boat or just work the banks?

I have a Jon boat and a kayak but I've never thought about taking them their. I've always fished that pond from the bank.

MS slammer, or some kind of glide bait in that clear water bound to bring up a giant.

I would try a crankbait, or a lipless crankbait.  Reel it back just fast enough so that it doesn't hang in the grass.

Ditto 

That area looks like it made for a trap..tick that submerged grass and let it fall free at the deep water line.

I would fish a shallow diving jerkbait. Twitch it and let it rise.....twitch it and let it rise. Maybe the Rapala Shadow Rap. A double willow spinnerbait will do well. Run it just fast enough so that the blades clip the grass.

TRY A BABY 1-   I use one here in my neck of the woods with the same kind of grass. works great. try gold when it's cloudy,overcast. chrome when sunny or a light chop on the water.
