Small pond bass - Fall lures?

New to fishing and my young son loves it. I’m getting hooked as well.
What are some good choices for lures as the season changes? Thanks in advance.

I like a Texas rig rubber worm in ponds. Minnows, crickets or worms under a bobber is great for young'uns.
If there isn’t too much junk, I too like a Texas rigged Culprit or a jig n pig. But that was what I learned to throw with my first baitcaster and the Florida ponds we fished had pretty clean bottoms. Now I like a top water……anything top water.

Don’t know if you can beat bait under a bobber for youngsters though……worms, crickets or dough balls etc..

Unless you're targeting big fish, a beetle spin is hard to beat.

Weightless Senko wacky rigged, Flukes, Beatles spins are my staples for pond fishing. Also like a net for small native sun fish hooked in the tail.

Get him a rooster tail and bettle spin to start. If it have some decent bass in it, you can also get him a spinner bait and a whopper plopper. When I take my daughter we use all of the above, depending on what is biting. She can just cast them out and reel them in. Works great for a kid, and she typically catches bigger fish than I do.

I'll be using a Beetle Spin this afternoon on a small three-acre pond. Also using a 5-inch plastic worm on a drop-shot rig. Maybe a Johnson Silver Minnow dressed with a twister tail grub in the thicker weeds. I'll be fishing from the bank. I'm so pumped because I haven't fished for bass since early May. This pond is one that I caught a seven pounder in quite a few years ago just about this time of year. :)

Good luck to you!

Good luck to you!

I just got back. Lots of tiny bass, nothing worth keeping. The pond was very low - probably two feet lower than it was when I last fished it in late spring.

On the way to the pond (Fort Gordon) I saw a dude on a bicycle get hit by an SUV! :eek: He seemed to be alright. He was on his feet and on his phone by the time I reached the spot he got hit, and there were eyewitnesses gathering around. From what I saw the bicycle rider was totally at fault. Hey at least he survived! :) Many bicycle riders have been killed on that road - it's a madhouse of a road like most of the roads where I live.
