Pond Tactics for Largemouth

Nothing beats pond fishing this time of year, especially for largemouth bass. Temperatures are comfortable for anglers as well as the fish, and a quick farm pond trip doesn't cut into the working day like a lake trip will. And it's a great way to get a feel for lures that you might not use regularly on big lakes, but find yourself needing in certain situations.

Pond bass will eat just about anything, but some ponds seem to be better suited for certain lures. Surface grasses and even lily pads often take over farm ponds this time of year unless the pond owners are proactive in treating for them. Crankbaits and hard plastic topwater lures are useless here, but it is a great opportunity for anglers to break out lures like hollow-body plastic frogs such as the Koppers frog or the Booyah Pad Crasher.

The trick to catching fish on these lures is to not set the hook too soon, but to set it hard enough when the time is right. These lures work well at some spots on the area's lakes, so fishing in a pond infested with those weeds is a great way to get a feel for using these lures.
