It really depends.... What time of year? What kind of pond? Etc etc. I used to fish ponds only and had about 10 different ones and my strategies for each were different depending on which pond I was in. I'd also pick which pond I went in depending on what time of year it was as well as the weather. You just gotta learn the pond. Only one thing was the same for all of them. One of my rods always had a 1/4 white booyah spinner bait. Always.
it does matter the pond a great deal. but if i wanted to fish any pond any time, i'd use these:
white hollow body frog (or a horny toad)
gold red dot gray #3/#4 mepps spinner (or a booyah)
black shiner spook (or a zell pop)
green pumpkin senko (or a red shad speedworm)
pbj eakins jig (or black blue flipping jig)
bubblegum trick worm
preference of individual can dictate parenthetical or not.
6 baits is acceptable because trick worm and senko can be fished on the same hook.
If I had to specify color, either purple or purple with a fire tail 7-10".
If there is a hawg in it, that'll catch him.
I used to have boxes full of top waters, plugs, and spinner baits. That's alright if you just want to catch fish. If you want to consistently pull lunkers, artificial worm even into the winter months or switch up to a jig and pig.
If I hit a pond around here on the farm, I don't even carry a tackle box. A couple of hooks stuck in my hat, a few weights in my pocket and a bag of Culprit in my back pocket.
If they won't pick up a worm, it's time to go home and do something else.
Trigger's list is almost exactly mine. I had to look up what that specific worm is and it is pretty darn close to the color of power worm I fish for bass most of the time and I suspect they are generic substitutes for each other (despite our loyalties to various brands, it is pretty obvious that other brands work about as well). But you gotta have 2" white twisty tails; I am not sure there is any body of water where they won't work. They are surprisingly universal in the size of fish they catch also.
