something that has worked for me is bigger hooks and larger bait, the gill where i fish will hit almost anything that goes in the water. but i was fishing for catfish a few months ago and got a good size green sunfish then a chubby blue gill on a big circle cat fish hook with a heft chunk of a hot dog. since then if im looking for bigger ones i put on a little larger hook and larger piece of bait and it seems to weed out some of the tiny ones.
The colors red and pink seem to be pretty good in many parts of the country for pond gills. Jigs in 1/32 and 1/64th oz with this color hair or legs could be hot. Your fish should be spawning now, or even post spawn, but still hanging close to bedding sites. In a tough bite I go with garden worms on a #8 Aberdeen long shanked hook 3 feet below a bobber. Don't let them run too long when they pull the bobber under to avoid deep-hooking the fish.
To improve your fishing in a pond you should consider a float tube to fish out of. They go from 75 dollars to 500 dollars. I depends on what you want. You use swim fins to power and controll the float tube. This way you can get out to the fish. Do some research on line.
I use ultra light rod and reel. I fish 1/32 ounce jigs and 1 1/2 inch curly tail plastics. I put either a part of a nightcrawler or crappie nibble on the tip of the hook to give it smell to the fish. I reel the jig in slowly and the blue gill will hit and take it if they are big enought to take the jig. I also will put the jig and grub under a bobber, if a cold front or high pressure system moves in. That is my system.
And Lori lets not forget the white jeans.
All jokes aside, in my pond in NC, I'm catching everything on a bright yellow jig.....tried redworms, but the BGG are loving this bright yellow artificial bait, as are the crappie, LMB & Catfish, ...go figure?? My pond however is not fed Dick so maybe that is the difference? I like how David said yellow "enrages" the fish...so I'm gonna keep making them mad :-)
We all have our little quirks and if yours is your white jeans then so be it. GOOD FISHIN....
I can tell you if the owner has a feeding schedule and feeds his fish it might be some hard fishing. I catch very few gills in my pond but I do use 99 percent artificial baits but your best bet is live bait I suspect. I think when it comes right down to it mother natures baits will always be the best way to go at least 90 percent of the time..
