Go to tackle for never fished (personally) pond

Recommended Posts

Got access to a couple of ponds today. Never fished one of them before. The other I've only fished once. The one I have fished I know that there are some giants in it....8+ pounders......I also know it has a soft muddy bottom. What's yalls go to for unfamiliar locations?

I like the Texas rig too. But, take some other things too. Spinnerbait, some shallow and deep diving cranks, lipless crankbait, and topwater. See what their biting

A 3/8 ounce jig is always my go to for a new location.  I'll start by dragging it to see if there's any noticeable structure or cover.  If that isn't producing I'll start swimming it along the shoreline.

Spinnerbait, topwater, and a T rig are pretty solid options for attacking a pond.

Senkos, zoom super fluke, and ribbon tailed worms. T-rigged, go as weightless as possible.

New place I want to cover water at various depths.  What I would choose would also depend on time of year and weed cover or lack of weed cover. 

 

But, in general, 

Cranks to cover between 1 and 12 feet so I'll count that as three lures

Swim jig with a paddletail

T-rig with a crawfish trailer

Flukes and keitechs can kill it on a pond in the fall. Match the hatch. Fluke weightless t rig or nose hooked. Jig head or keel weighted hook on ktech.

Fluke for top(weightless)

Suspending jerk bait for mid

Dropshot for bottom(nose hooked fluke)

 

My plan of attack for fall ponds. Those would be my top 3 approaches for your ponds
