Have two ponds in our neighborhood that hold big fish LMB's ive caught up to just shy of 7 and spots up to 3lbs. Was out last week catching them deep in 15-20ft. Low and behold two days ago the HOA Loads it with copper sulfate and makes the water a nice pretty blue. What baits are y'all throwing in the clear ponds that get dyed blue?

This is a very specified question, tantamount to asking what bait you'd use if you were fishing the canals in Six Flags.

I'm waiting to see some answers.

I can answer from experience, but I'd simply use the same baits I always used for bass, and probably jumble up the colors a bit more.

Just speaking anecdotally, I've had good luck with brown/black flake (pumkin?) 2" curly tail jigs in exactly the same type of water you're talking about, not 15-20' though more like 5'-10'.

They dye the ponds in the parks in Allen every summer. I have never found that the dye effects the fish. I throw the same stuff I always do and never have any trouble catching fish.

Ol’ reliable. Night crawlers have never failed me yet, although it may not be as fun as catching them on plastics or lures.

Over in Colleyville/Euless, I've been throwing bluegill colored swim jigs with a swim bait trailer, catch multiple each time I'm out. Water isn't clear, so can't speak to that, but it's working in normal conditions.

Throw lures that will move water so they can feel them, that's what does it in my ponds where they are permanently dyed. TX rig with big creature, big jig, chatterbait, spinnerbait, underspin, etc.
