What can you tell me about bass farm pond fishing?

Fishing for bass is a fantastiic experience for those people that look to fish in various different bodies of water because no two areas are ever the same in term of experience. As such, if you are looking to go bass fishing in a farm pond then you will find that the techniques and lures that you have to use are very different to those for a lake. For example, a lake is often much bigger than a farm pond and so you need to compensate for that. However, this limits the space in which the bass an move in a pond. As such, shore or fly fishing is your best possible bet. Fly fishing for bass is ideal during the warmer weather as you can establish your line in familiar surroundings to the bass, meaning that you are more likely to get a bite. However, in winter, shore fishing is a good idea. You should make sure that your line remains still for a while so as to attract the bass out of their cold weather hiding places, particularly if there is plenty of vegetation. Fishing quickly will not lure them out as it would in summer. You may also want to try more realistic lures like those mimicking baitfish as the prey pool is much smaller in the ponds. Although bass often strike out at anything, ensuring that your lures are as lifelike as possible will increase your chances of achieving a high catch rate first time, and every time!
