Are there any bass in there?

Recommended Posts

I have been fishing on a small pond in Jacksonville,NC lately for bass, but I have not caught any bass. I have tried spinner baits, plastic worms, topwaters, just about all I have. However whenever I bobber fish with worms I catch a catfish or brim sometimes. Has anyone had any success catching bass with the methods I use or in NC? Can someone please give me some tips, because Im tired of not catching anything. By the way I did catch a garr on a buzz bait but I want some BASS!!

Well this is in Iowa, but the situation sounds very similar. While there are no gar, there are tons of bullhead catfish in the pond that try to eat just about everything I throw in. The last time I was there, my buddy who was fishing for anything threw in a 3" PowerBait Tube and caught anything and everything in the pond. He caught about 15 fish the entire time 2 of which were LMB flirting around the 1 lb. mark. The others were 8 catfish and 5 bluegill. I caught 4 fish the entire time, but I was using baits that were over 7 inches long. I caught 2 LMB and 2 catfish. I caught a 4.4 lb LMB on a 7" PowerWorm. I couldn't catch anything at all with spinnerbaits or buzzbaits, but there are no gar in there either  :P. In small ponds different fish are everywhere so its tough to just find LMB especially since catfish will eat anything. I'd just try to throw something bigger, or something that only bass would eat. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Look at it this way, at least you are catching fish, right?

Unless you know as a fact that other guys are catching bigger bass, I think you should find another place to fish.

You can't actch 'em if they ain't there.

Your pond doesn't sound to me like it holds much promise.
