Took my 11 yr old nephew to a local pond to try and get into some bass today. For the first hour or so I tried a variety of plastics (Senkos, Baby Brush hogs, Flukes) while he decided on a 3 inch grub. While I was trying to get into some bigger bass, he was knockin down good numbers of 6-10 inch bass so I decided to join him.
Tied on the grub and the first two fish I caught were a couple of very respectable gills, which are pretty rare at this particular pond. I got into a few smaller bass and then lost a bigger fish. After some more smaller bass I hooked into a nice fish in the seventeen to eighteen inch range and shortly after that a nice fifteen incher.
The key today was downsizing and going slow. Didn't get a single hit on the larger plastics but as soon as I switched to the grub the fish started hitting. I typically have better luck in the fall with larger baits but today they wanted them small and slow.
