So just 2 weeks ago I was hauling them golf course pond fish in....and the weather started cooling off here and the bite just stopped. No matter what I threw I couldn't get a hit. Days are in the high 80's but the night is dropping off to the mid to low 60's and I can feel the water has cooled off quite a bit. So what change in tactics and lures\baits should I be doing...????

Yup I'd throw a senko, weightless t rigged or wacky, a white one. I'd try a ned rig next. That or drop shot a robo worm.

They've already said it... weightless senkos and drop-shotting roboworms. A couple of tricks though...

-Downsize to the 4" senko.
-Drop-shot with only a 4-6" leader between the weight and the hook.

Also, try fishing after the sun goes down...same thing happen to me at a local pond where I normally catch 10-15 1-4lbs....I would get off work at 5 and fish till 7 without a bite or maybe just get 1 bite..same lures and sometimes smaller lures...but then after the sun went down..the action just turned on and I started catching them again..bigger sizes too..
