Magnum trick worm . Odds are they don't see that size bait. It catches fish of all sizes. Texas rig it or use a magnum Shakey head

I fish a ton of pressured ponds and the summer can be hit or miss sometimes. What works for me usually is an 1/8 oz Texas-rigged 7” Power worm (Purple or Junebug) to start. It’s really effective at night if you’re able. Fast-action tip and braid help you feel bite detections when it’s dark outside. You’ll be amazed how acute your senses become when you’re not depending on watching your line

 

 If that doesn’t work, try a 4” Weightless Texas-rigged stick worm. I just don’t fish the stick worm at night because you can’t line watch. Oh and my headlights are always off, until I have a fish on.

Depending on the depth, you can mostly get away with unweighted Texas rigged plastics - worms, craws or lizards.  Depends what you have in there for forage. 

 

If it's a little deeper and the bottom isn't weedy and/or sludge you can use a 1/8 oz jighead with a curlytail grub.  

 

I would also recommend coming back after dark - 11pm to 1 am and throw a chatterbait with a craws or flappy trailer a few feet off the shore going around.  Reel moderately slow and you will get some hits...

Assuming your fishing from the bank, I’d use flukes, trick worms and sluggos around vegetation. Also would try a light mojo rig with a French fry or finesse worm

I went about 6PM the other day. I caught one on a spinnerbait, lost one each on a jig, a frog, a weightless stick bait, a Chug Bug and a Zoom Swimming Super Fluke buzzed on the surface. Yes, that's a very low strike-catch ratio. Worse than I usually do, but there were bites. They weren't really committing to the topwaters, but I saw a few fish chasing bait. It's a tough time of year. For me, there's no better bait than a frog around lilies. I try to either get there for the sunrise or fish the evening until sundown. That's all I got for ya.
