Big bass in small pond
Q. In my front yard I have a small pond which is a home to many bass, but one particular bass in there could possibly be the state record.
Does anyone have any ideas or strategies on what to use or how to fish for this monster?
A. Hi Dylan, My first suggestion is to go big on your lures. Big Texas rigged worms or big swimbaits, 6 inches or larger.
Match the bait fish that are in the pond.
Find isolated cover and structure.
Also, make sure you are using the right equipment. Fluorocarbon line is less visible so take advantage of this even if just using it as a leader.
Make sure you have a good knot and quality sharp hooks.
The last thing you want is to hook this beast and then lose it!
