Hi guys im starting to get into the canals/ponds scene since i seen some nice ones around noone fishing on them and was wondering what are good lures or bait for some bass or anything locally. So far got a few spinning rods, just bought a baitcasting combo so i can learn it and have a couple of spinnerbaits and worms, what else is commonly used here for some decent fish. Im willing yo drive around trying places every other weekens so thats not an issue.Thanks

    A good all round productive lure is the Zoom Super Fluke. Water Melon seed or black.  4 0 hook weedless unweighted.

    I also had good success with spinnerbaits. Then there's old school methods like shiners. :)
    We all new what we were doing until DropTheHammer showed up.

    Day in and day out a 4-6" plastic worm Texas rigged with a 1/16 oz weight will out fish anything.  If you can see the fish it can see you and usually won't bite.  I use 6 and 8 lb monofilament or fluorocarbon line.

    ^^ Texas rig.. Weight slides to the head of the worm. You can pinch a split shot about 10" up from bait instead for a different look. Try the texas deal.

    For the Texas rig use bullet weights.  A split shot up the line is called either a split shot rig or a Carolina rig depending how large of a weight you're using.  My go to rig is the Texas with either 1/16th or an 1/8 oz weight if it's windy or the water is deeper than 15'.

    A small jerkbait has always been good for me. Yo-Zuri has made some smaller ones in bright flashy colors that have worked well. of course a good old prop bait is always fun.

    The yozuri 3ds is what you're looking for. That's when I really started catching fish. Snook, bass, peas, tarpon, anything really

    black with blue fleck senko fished either wacky or texas w/ or w/o weight.
    cane toads and other frog baits.
    chrome or fire tiger rattle trap particularly for peacocks
    don't try to use typical bass soft plastics for peacocks.
