So I found this huge-ish pond near me, and nobody goes fishing there very much, but I know there's bass in it because one time I saw these two guys catch some smallies and largemouths, plus when I'm castnetting for shad (catfishing bait) I often net some baby bass. I know the pond is very healthy as there is a wide variety of wildlife surrounding it, and I've caught huge catfish from it. The thing is, the bass are either under a lot of pressure compared to another pond I fish in...or they have different diets. What I mean by that is, when I fish this one pond in my neighborhood, which I'm sure I'm the only one who fishes it, I always catch bass any time of the day, any time of the year, on anything, including hotdogs. Is it just because they are starving? So what I'm asking is if anyone knows of some attention getting/irresistible softbait colors for early fall/late summer to get reaction strikes? I use every type of softbait, but I'm new to tubes.
