Default What's working for Bass?

Fishing some new ponds this weekend and since I haven't been in awhile, what have you had success with for LMB lately?

I don't just post Memes... I actually do fish

The ponds have shad so I was thinking of matching the hatch with a white Storm 360GT searchbait to start.

For the corner of the pond that all the crap gets blown into I was thinking of trying a frog.

Thoughts?

For ponds you really can't beat a senko.

Swimbaits, top-water popper/frogs and senkos/neds. Shouldn't be too hard to find something to bite in a pond.

I agree with the above, I throw a lot of different options but I usually end up catching em on the old senko, I’ve been using the white and blue 5” which they can’t seem to resist. You’ll get a lot of blow ups on frogs, good luck setting the hook I’m still missing 5+ each trip on frogs. I fish between Boulder and Fort Collins to 25 that’s my grounds. Hop around, PM me if you want to swap some spots. There’s a group of us Large Mouth Hunters on here. Good Fishin’ !

Thats my area also. Its been really hot off the shore with weightless worms. Browns and dark greens, mostly senkos, but switch to lighter power worms if the weeds are too much

Cannot wait until next year when I can pick up a boat. Then its game on

The good ol' senko.

I've thrown a lot of different things at bass but the one that I always go back to is the senko!

What is your preferred method to rig it?

I like wacky rigged with a Gamakatsu Weedless Wacky hook.

You lose a lot of senkos when you get bit because the worm gets pushed up into the weed guard and falls off but you can throw that hook into some nasty cover, not get hung up and not drag a bunch of weeds.

I've never seen this hook before!

Looks interesting.
