This is my reply, hope it helps others.
In general, yes they all have Bass in them, just with differing quality. My go-to baits:
weightless tube jig ( caution this will twist the hell out of Mono, that's why i use braid.)
any and all roboworm products-Bass pro and sportsman's warehouse
Gulp minnows 3/16 jig heads.
Top water baits
as you can see I go with soft plastics about 90% of the time. I also go weightless rigged weedless a-lot- this helps you not have to deal so much with weeds.
Most importantly- Bass are shore oriented 75% of the time in small ponds Long cast are generally wasted effort. look for any change in the shore line, even dents in a reed line- walk a-lot and pick these spots for your casts. don't waste time simply casting out, pick a particular bush, weed, rock. Also for this style of fishing polarized glasses are a must, spend some time just walking and spotting fish. this is key to these metro lakes as almost all of the pressure occurs at docks, and close to parking lots, most people just won't do the walking it takes to catch fish.
Presentation: pick your target, cast and let the bait fall, watch you line, if it moves at all lift to feel for weight- if its there, set the hook, if not let the bait settle again if nothing happens in the first 20-30 sec "twitch" the rod - not big movements just 3-5" inch shake of the rod tip- you looking to dance the bait in place not move it out of the area. If no strike then go ahead and real in- then pick a spot 6" to a foot from your original cast and repeat.
Sorry if I'm speaking to you like a newbie. Good luck, and tight lines.
