This is kind of late, since I haven't been online much this week, but I wanted to post it in case anyone else could use the info... I fished a local pond from 5:55 to 7:40 am. Weather was calm with heavy fog. Most of the time I fished a whole live nightcrawler on a small straight-shanked hook (#6 or #8), weightless to avoid the weeds that are already beginning to grow on the bottom. If the weeds aren't so bad, I usually use a small bullet weight. Cast out, let the worm sink for several seconds, then slowly "bounce" it back, plastic worm style. Watch the line carefully when not moving the worm, that's when they usually pick it up. This method produced 5 bass between 13 and 15 1/2" long, as well as a bonus 6 bluegill that will see the frying pan sometime soon. Also had one bass break off. It wasn't any bigger than the others, my line must have been nicked. It was a lot of fun on ultra-light tackle, and a very nice way to start off a Saturday morning! :G The previous Saturday I caught a couple on a weightless Zoom Double Ringer worm (watermelon candy), but it was digging into the weeds too much this time. I think I'll try a fluke next time. What's everyone else catching their pond bass on right now??
