Suburban Clear Water Factory Pond Bassing

POst reports from those private lakes and ponds. No need to give up the location. Sometimes just knowing they're biting in a region can be a help to others.

Suburban Clear Water Factory Pond Bassing

Postby beanskittled » Jul Thu 12, 2018 2:51 pm

Got out to a little factory pond a short drive from my house the other day and fished both the morning and afternoon bite with a dropshot and wacky rig while my friend got a few on varying top water baits. Some of you may know this area/pond but please don't give out the location or spot burn as it is a pretty small and isolated pond. Anyway, I can't attach the pics from my phone but I did make a youtube video out of the whole thing and will link it below. Please check it out and leave a like or sub if you enjoy it.

Yes, the as mentioned items and also pliers, saw you using a knife to pop a hook and slightly cringed. I fish some similar waters and an excellent bait for them are 7” flukes or other brand 7” soft jerkbaits. Here’s why, they’re usually 5/8oz to 3/4oz unweighted and they cast a mile. You’ll be able to cast to areas that other baits just won’t reach. If you Texas rig them, not texposed (like you would in less weedy waters) they are exceptionally weedless. Don’t be afraid of the size, smaller bass will eat them too. Big bass inhale them. Both hit them and hold on giving you time to get a good hook set. You’ll need at least a 6’-6” med/heavy baitcaster, preferably 7’ or longer. If you only use spinning, you’ll definitely need a 7’ med/heavy. Straight 30 to 50lb braid. I guarantee you that pond has 4’s & 5’s, a bigger bait will attract them. Colors; Baby bass, green pumpkin or pearl white. Lastly, don’t puss out and buy 5” flukes. They fish entirely different and you won’t see any of the beni’s the larger size will give you.

I can confirm there are 5 lb lm in there. There are also some pretty nice sunfish and bluegill. The culvert connects this pond and another nearby pond which most people do not have access to.
