Zoom Lizard - 6'' Creature Softbaits
There are plastic baits, and then there are Zoom® baits. The difference is undeniable. Want proof? Just take a peek into your favorite tournament angler's tackle box, and start counting the Zoom bags. For those who lay it on the line every time out, there can be no other choice. Every Zoom soft plastic bait is wholly realistic, super-soft to the touch (for the extra action needed to pull that reluctant money fish) and salt-impregnated to hold even the most tentative bite. If you're not fishing lizard baits like Zoom's Lizard, then you are missing out on some great action. Most lizard baits are especially deadly during the spring when they are looking to ambush spawn nests, but the Lizard's high-action tail and appendages combined with its lifelike look make it effective all summer long.

the strike zone
I like to Carolina-rig the baits when the fish are suspended 1-3 feet off the bottom. It gives the fish an easier target to see when it is fluttering down on the initial drop and while dragging the bait.
I believe it also give the bait a better/slower presentation which gives the fish more time to think about hitting. the bait will free fall a little better then when Texas rigged with a noise weight.
I would recommend a Carolina-rig in cold and very warm water when again these fish are suspended off the bottom. Fish in same spots are you caught fish before and you should haul in some nice fish!
Try it in shallow water with an UNPEGGED sinker for a similar effect.
I whould say that there are bluegills/bream/sufish, crayfish, and lizards in the ponds.
I would recomend string soft plastic lizards and crayfish around any visable cover. I would also recomend that you try a bigger profile soft plasice worm to maybe represent a snake. I would though there areound any weed, cattail/buggy whips, or lilly/dollar pads visable.
As for other baits, just match the lure to the food in the ponds.
Try fire tiger cranks baits and a chartures colored spainner bait.
Hope this help you out!
bring back times of big 4 lbers for me
mine was than covered in algae and choked all the fish dead...tragic
well these baits will be something to try around spring but for other times in mud stained water its tough to say
the pond i used to fish you could throw a rock in the water and the fish would react...not literally but still
my fav lure xts speed lure minnow 1 and 5/8 inch but not what you want at all
try live bait this enw pond i have stumpled upon is tough to fiush and is mud stained i am having trouble with the righ bait
to sometimes the only way to know is to keep fishin it
i tryied live bait and caught a frieken 7 lb bass! used a grasshopper big one as bait
try stuff like that doesnt fail and ask other fisherman if their is some
everyone has a secret
but try lil of everything tough to say
but, fish it slowly.
The fall of these lures is very slow and that's where the hits happen. Just walk it along the bottom. 1-2 rotations of the reel and let it fall. Repeat. Be patient--this is not a buzz bait.
T-rig it weightless with a 3/0-5/0 EWG hook (I've had a 5+ pounders throw 1/0 and 2/0 hooks). I find that the bullet weight collects too much spinach walking it on the bottom. If casting distance becomes a problem, insert a nail weight in the lizard's butt.
Bass just hate these things. It's innate. I've had dinky 1 pounders hit these things like a train.
if its winter-no
remember texas rig this liek you would a worm weighless i guess becuase your golf poond prolly got algae like mine but if you want a weight i geuss
i would recommend a gamakatsu ewg worm hook
in size maybe like 4/0 or so idk 3/0 5/0
some people dip em in spike it to change the tips color
and some people marinate them or spray on scents
some people cut or trim pieces
listen i sometimes do that stuff and its because i wish i was fishing and it gives me a sense that i am
they make em right for you
just rig em texas weightless and catch some bass
Other things that I have caught on accident are catfish and bowfin!
If there are fish in the water and you have a Zoom Bait tied on you can catch it!!
sometimes you can get smallie but more for largemoufs
can catch other fish supposedly like pickeral and muskie i suppsoe since they feed like bass but not usually
i heard of people ctching catfish
and this too b ig for smallie and crappie normally but its possible to get one wif this
