Pond Fishing For Bass – Best Baits and Techniques

May 20, 2020 26 No Comments


Want to fish a pond? These tips will make it much easier! Ponds can be some of the best bass fishing of your entire life if you know what to look for and which baits to throw. Keep it simple this year and use Tim’s proven method to break down the water in steps. Don’t get caught throwing just your favorite lure over and over again, its time to take your pond fishing to the next level. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re bank fishing or in a boat, this method will help you maximize your time on the pond. Start by covering water with fast moving baits or topwater to gauge how many fish there are and if they’re in a feeding mood. Next, switch to slower moving reaction baits to pick off the remainder of the aggressive bass. Finally, wrap it up with finesse baits to catch as many fish as possible. 

Not all lures are created equal. Unfortunately there is a lot of junk and hype on the market today. Below you’ll find an exhaustive list of baits we have confidence in for both pond and lake fishing. If you’re looking to fill a particular category, these are lures we trust. The links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of every item.
