Zoom Lizard - 6''
If you're not fishing classic creature-type soft baits like the 6" Zoom® Lizard, then you're missing out on some great action. Bass love juicy lizards any time of year, but they absolutely hate them during the spring when the 4-legged beasts are notorious for raiding their nests! Ultra-realistic, super-soft, and salt impregnated, with a high-action tail and appendages that will have bass charging in to make contact. Great for Texas or Carolina rigging. Made in USA.
- Classic size for all-around use
- Realistic look
- Super-soft body
- High-action tail
Year after year, Zoom Baits remain the hottest soft plastics in bass fishing. Zoom soft baits are legendary for their uncanny fish-producing ability, and rare is the tournament angler who will leave the dock without a good supply in the boat. Wholly realistic, super-soft to the touch, and salt-impregnated, Zoom soft baits have the look, the action, and the flavor needed to make fish bite down hard, and fight to hang on.

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
