Best Pond Fishing Baits to Use Year Round

Pond Fishing VS Lake Fishing Video

I had so many questions just about pond fishing that I decided to make it it’s own video. These are my favorite bass fishing lures for ponds that work year round, and also some of my favorites for summer bass fishing in ponds.

Mail me stuff that won’t kill me : )

Fisher Swanzy says:

Where do you buy your terminator spinner baits?

jpecinajr says:

Hello LakeForkGuy. Im in Houston Tx and am just now getting into fishing. I will be taking the family to Lake Livingston this weekend. What lures or bait do you recommend?

Cameron Loveless says:

have you ever fished lake granbury? it is like 45 minutes west of fort Worth

Ryan Pellegrini says:

biggest thing for me in the dog days of Summer is down sizing. just like most people if you been outside all day sweating in 100 degree weather you typically dont want to super size you Mc Ds. small 3 to 4 inch berkly minnow, senko, or craw on a drop shot rig kills it. ive caught some of my biggest bass on really hot days.

Billy Rhodes says:

I use a white chatter bait

TheOneTheOnly W says:

Small Shad BigO crank bait or small spoon to whoever asked the shad question.

Mason Green says:


Logan Ward says:

I have that same frog I think that is the spro frog walkin midnight

William Knochel says:

whats easier to catch smallmouth or largemouth.

Grant Gautreaux says:

So I’m not sure what the baitfish in my pond are, I’ve seen big shad,does that mean there are plenty of smaller shad swimming around? It would really help me thanks!

Daniel Covington says:

I would have to choose the senko I’ve been having good luck and fun with them at my local ponds

What are the best lures to use for bass fishing

HoosierVetFishing says:

When you watch all these youtubers talk about “go to” baits at specific parts of the year, it’s amazing to me no one mentions the old school grub on a 1/8oz jighead… grubs will catch fish year rounds regardless of pressure on lakes. I love to throw them on a dropshot too when the bite is really tough.

Shaky head deserves an honorable mention as well.

Nick Urbano says:

Ahhhhh……. come on now. Thought that was hilarious

Greg Mendez says:

For summertime pond bass what color do you recommend on a frog when it’s sunny outside black or white and popping or no popping? Please answers

Austin Crump says:

What baits do I use in the winter at ponds? My local ponds forage is bluegill, baby bass, and crawdads…. senkos don’t work if you were gonna say that. Thanks for the vidja!

Size 8 xrap. Catches fish left and right.

James Ritchie says:

Jut watched a Bill Dance video where he said if he could have only one lure to fish year round, pond or lake, it would be a spinner with a black skirt, and a single Colorado blade.  You two aren’t that far apart.   I prefer the black skirt, a swell, and for the same reasons he does.  It seems to work in water from muddy to clear, and on days that are dark and cloudy, or bright and sunny.  The big Colorado blade causes a lot of commotion, but also makes it easy to tell when a bass grabs it, even with a soft bite.

You and Blacktip are the most professional fishing Youtubers out there. Love your content, and the way you treat your fans/viewers.

Riverrunne 17 says:

Something I throw in the heat of summer when it’s stupid hot is a weightless worm. Rig a ribbon tail worm on a 3/0 hook and throw with no weight or swivel . The worm sinks really slow and once it gets underneath the thermocline is when you’ll get bit .

Joe Madl says:

Spinner baits are my favorite to use in lakes

Blake Fischer says:

Gotta love spinners! There’s so much variety in them, and they’re so effective. Only problem I have is when there is too many weeds in the pond. Great video!

Litz Challenges says:
