Pond fishing.

Recommended Posts

Alrighty guys, So its that time of the year again when me and a couple buddys get out there and really try and tear it up. I need some opinions on 4 diff. baits. Sizes, colors, and manufacturer would be greatly appreciated. Baits That are a must have this season. I already have the senkos ready just need a few more baits to fish this year. I don't have a deep wallet so list accordingly ;)

                             Thanks fellas

For pond fishing, tubes are a must.

Booyah spinnerbait in white and chart. I prefer the booyah blade(colorado blade)

And some sort of top water....probably a buzz bait or some stanley ribbits.

Plus the Senkos you already have, those would be my top choices...unless it is a deep rocky pond. Then i would go with some sort of ratltrap or crank.

Soft Plastics first.....worms, grubs, I have some little tadpole type grubs that I got from Cabelas several years ago that are excellent in ponds during the early season.  Craws, LIZARDS, and the Senkos for sure.

Small shallow diving cranks. Craw and bluegill imitators would be my choice. The teeny Rebels are an excellent choice for early season pond fishing.

A Beetle Spin or two. I have never thrown one in a pond yet that didn't get bit by something.

Buzzbaits, poppers, twitch baits, Mann's Baby 1-Minus in a bluegill type color, and definitely some frogs.

hmmm, yamamoto hula grubs(forget the price shouldnt be too much) rigged either on a light t-rig or jighead

7in ribbbontail worms, can be from anywhere, cheap ones are culprit and powerbait(at least cheaper than senkos) t-rigged weightless on spinning or weighted on baitcasting

I would have to say creme worms in that earthworm tone wacky rigged or rigged with creme's prop rig

then a small jig (3/8 and below) with a sweet beaver as a trailer(beaver from reaction innovations, and the jig from where ever a cheap model is a booyah but i dont throw those

I've had some luck with a Berkley Beast fished on a weightless T-rig extremely slow. This rig can also be fished topwater so you basically have 2 baits in 1!

To add to the great list above...

This year I've been messing around with inline spinners a lot, and it's a heck of a lot of fun when you're just going shorefishing for an hour or two. Buy a variety pack of Blue Fox flash inline spinners, size 1 (I prefer the flat body, not the round body) - they come out to about a buck a piece, and are easily the best inline spinners I've used. They cast amazingly well, and you won't get any line twist at all, I promise.

Don't expect to catch huge bass, but don't think you won't either - I've caught some unexpectedly large fish on this tiny lure ;) You'll catch anything and everything in the pond from big bluegills to crappies to perch to bass and anything else. They're a tremendous bait for rivers too if you have any in the area.

For even more fun, use them with a light or ultralite setup.
