Could this catch any fish in community ponds if worked slowly? I've tried it a few times already and changed up presentations and baits. But nothing. Any tips?

If the water isn't too dirty it should catch them. A smaller profile jig usually works well for me in ponds this time of year. Good luck!

Yea it's one of my top 3 go to's in the ponds. Drop shotting a roboworm on a 1/0 hook rigged weedless. You can fish it almost anywhere and it gets bit. I really like it in shallow water, I think a lot of guys miss that bite.

Yeah, I've heard a lot of people saying Roboworms is their go to. I guess im using the wrong bait. I typically go to a Zoom Trick worm, or Biospawn Plasma Tail.

Try a grande bass rattle snake. Or even a strike king caffeine Shad. Robos are the very best. Hands down. But I have had a lot of fun with these two also. Heck, I've even caught them on Berkley Gulp minnows.

Works on the little community pond I fish. Try a Zoom Tiny Fluke in watermelon red, nose hooked.

Absolutely. Last 2 fish I caught in late December was on a drop shot. Havoc money maker on one wacky rigged and a yum dinger on the other nose hooked.

Robo worms are good but I have done equally as well with other finesse worms and they hold up better than the robo's.

You should also try a wacky rigged 5 inch senko type bait in that pond and see what happens.
