Just a quick tip today.
On highly pressured ponds fish plastics weightless and use things they have probably never seen. I have very little success on standard worms on pressured ponds but creature baits and lizards will get the job done. Lures that look lifelike but unlike what they have been hooked on can make a huge difference.
I caught this beast on a Z-Man CreatureZ. This fish is also featured in my other blog in my “best bass year” ever entry.
