What would be the best type of bait/lure,etc. to catch bass in a murky pond? i.e. what color, worms, o what?

I enjoy freshwater fishing yet I do not usually catch many bass. I want to know what works best for you in the condition I’ve listed

I’ll try to get back to you on this one. My dad, who died a couple of years ago, was a bass fisherman and he kept a little notebook that listed what he caught, under what conditions and what lures/bait he was using. He was also a chemist so he kept records like he was keeping his lab notebook. I kept the notebook, but I’m not sure where it is right. I’ll try to track it down and see if there’s any useful info in there for you. I used to go bass fishing with him but he always decided what lure I should be using that particular time. I, myself, don’t know much about it.

If Bass are in that murky pond then they’re used to eating pollywogs, frogs, guppies and crawdads, whatever moves in the water, they’ll eat.

I love live bait. Catch live grasshoppers that live in the grass around the pond. Bass love them. You can also use a small hook and catch a small bluegill on the grasshopper. Take a little bluegill and hook him thru the tail and throw him out there and just let hi m swim around and you will catch a bass. Also charteuse colored rubber worms and lizards are good for murky conditions.

first off if your using worms i think the zoom trick bait or the tube also a spiner dait works well to would work best and depending on the darkness of the water you should use a darker color un like fighting instead of doing the opposit do the same i would give more info on the subject but most are secrets so if you want to ask me something e-mail me at fisherking221@yahoo.com.also fish fast or slow depending on the time and tempo
