POND Bass Fishing from a KAYAK **LIGHTNING & FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS**



Tim is back on the kayak in a tiny pond and he’s catching bass! Come along as he fishes a frog and senko for the pond bass. He’s hoping to catch some nice fish before a giant storm rolls in with flash flood warnings, thunder, and lighting.

Tim starts out with a Bully Wa Frog. As the day progresses he switches over to a Sprinker frog hoping the straight retrieve will get a better bite than the side to side walking action of a traditional frog. He gets bit on the very first cast and after that focus completely shifts to the Teckel. Tim continues to explore, picking up both a senko and a Rage Bug to probe the thick grass in the middle of the pond.

Pond fishing is typically a little easier than fishing on a big lake. While you have less water to work with, the trade off is the bass are easy to target and trapped in a confined space. By implementing a 2-part attack with the combination of topwater and senko Tim was able to quickly and easily locate the fish that were feeding in the pond. He didn’t have time to dig deep into the reeds in search of a bigger fish but he did the best he could with a short window of opportunity.
