I went fishing at a local pond today. As I was walking the bank I came across about 4 bass in one little area. I threw most everything in my box and they just wouldn't bite. I threw a 10in. power worm in blue flek, a watermelon colored strike king jig, a blue(forgot the color) pitboss wieghtless, and a storm swimbaits. All of these baits I have caught bass on previously. They were right at the bank. One I guess was about 5lbs. What should I throw?
Probably not what you were throwing (all those are good options)
They were possibly spooked if they were that shallow (if you saw them, they probably sensed you were there)
Bedding fish can sometimes take a long time to get to bite.
For easily spooked shallow bass I like the following:
Stand very far away from the bank (as a general rule, I don't want any part of my rod able to reach the bank line with my arm fully extended)
Rig a creature bait on a very short hook to weight length drop shot.
Cast the drop shot well past the bass and drag it toward them
When the bait gets in the bass, just soak it, give it a little twitch every now and then.
