1.  Fat ika rigged upside down 4/0 ewg hook

2.  BronzEye frog/black...(currently working good for me

3.  Spinnerbait/buzzbait along the weed edge

Good luck!

I agree with the suggestions so far.  If you can't find fat ikas at the store (which you probably won't) get some GYCB Senkos or a knock-off (Tiki Sticks, Yum Dingers, etc.).  The best color will depend on water conditions at your pond, but a good one that works in a lot of places for me is something like watermelon w/red flake.  Rig the senkos on the same 4/0 EWG hooks, toss it into or just outside the weeds, and let it sink.  And be patient.   Let it sit for several seconds before you move it.  

Good luck!

Shallow Crankbait along the weedlines or bumping into the cover............

What he says would be my number 1 choice

Also senkos as most said...

Small finese worms, jigs, and tubes would work well also.

Lately with me I've been having all my luck with anything that rattles. Crank baits, lipless crank baits, top water baits, it doesn't seem to matter as long as it rattles.  I really haven't been able to figure out why.

This time of year (August) all I use are plastics, GYCB 3" Senkos and Ikas.. I do however all of spring, summer, and fall use Heddon Torpedos on mornings and/or nights.

MY SUMMERTIME FAVORITES

BPS Paddle Stik Worm (5.5" paddletail worm) 3/0 T-Rig <> 1/16 oz Weight

Yum Ribbontail Worm (7.5" ribbontail worm) 3/0 T-Rig <> 1/16 oz Weight

Waveworm Tiki Stick (5.0" stick worm) 3/0 T-Rig <> 1/16 oz Weight

Yamamoto Kut-tail Worm (6.5" straight worm) 3/0 T-Rig <> 1/8 oz Weight

FYI:

Though it's rarely publicized, the ledgers at the fishing camps in Florida reveal that

plastic worms routinely outperform live minnows during the "summertime",

both on a quantitative and qualitative basis.

I've used a Black 3/8oz. Booyah Buzz for the past 2 months and smash on bass every day! My average has gone up to about 16 fish a day! Killer bait!

Senkos (wacky and t-rigged weightless) and Fat Ikas, both either watermelon w/ red/black flake or black w/ blue flake.  Mostly close to shore.
