I made another short excursion to a couple of small ponds with my brother in law last week and had a ton of fun! The weather was perfect and the water is getting warm. I started out with a shallow diving chartreuse Strike King crankbait and caught a nice little one pounder on my 5th cast! The pace slowed and over the next hour I wore out the hinges on my tacklebox as I tried spinnerbaits and crankbaits of every color! I was beginning to get frustrated. Then I remembered the new pack of 1/8 ounce Roadrunner Jigs I had bought on sale back in the winter. It was a great choice, as over the next 2 hours I caught 4 more bass, 4 nice crappies and 2 bluegill. Can't wait to go back!

I decided that I would try some smaller baits due to the relative size of the pond that I reckon was about a quarter of an acre or so. This seemed to be the right choice and I caught 4 small bass from a half pound up to about one pound in the 2 hours I was there.
I used a white Chatterbait jig and a Beetlespin with a white grub. These are usually pretty reliable and once again proved their worth!
