I don't want to sound like a complete idot, but I have now been fishing for 31 years and have only fished freshwater trout 1 time in the High Sierra's as a kid and yes I caught a crap load of them on I beleive they are called "super dupers".

Well, I work in Cerritos and just found out today that the Cerritos Regional park on Bloomfield actually stocks fish. This is about 5 minutes from my work and I'm determined to catch my first freshwater bass. This is strickly done from walking around the pond. Can anyone give me some tips here. I just picked up a Citica 200g5, which is a good crank bait reel. I just have no idea as to what time of cranks to throw. I have the LC 110 for the surf, do they work on freshwater bass? I have a few other freshwater cranks in my box with a huge bill on them for diving deep. What colors should I use?

Again, I don't want to look like a complete noob, but it is what it is. Does anyone live near Cerritos and fishes this place? Thanks guys.

I have fished this place a few of times and would suggest not to use cranks at all. There are hoses and tubes that run along the bottom of the lake to the fountains. I have lost a few jerk baits to them.

I have caught fish there on robo worms. Drop shot and wacky rig

Is it worth the time to fish there? Is catching a fish there like winning the lottery?

Just like any other body of water, you have to learn the patterns and pick up on what's biting. A body of water is always worth it to fish but that's just me. If you're in the area it wouldn't hurt to fish it.

The two universal bass baits are, in no particular order:

a. Plastic worm
b. Spinner bait

The 6 universal colors are:
White
Black
Chartreuse
Dark Purple
Pumpkin (black speckled earthworm brown)
Green Pumpkin (black speckled olive green)

You can have more than this, of course. But you should always have these.

- Get some 6" soft plastic worms in [purple or black] and Pumpkin w/matched hooks, along with some 3/8" bullet weights. If you wanted only one worm color, make it black.
- Get some 3/8 oz. Colorado-blade spinnerbaits in black, chartreuse and white combinations. If you only wanted one color, make it a combo of black and chartreuse.

Then go to it.

- Rig the worms Texas style and fish them slow, with and without weight around all structure and cover. This is "Probe and Poke" fishing. In particular, look for structure and cover in, or adjacent to, deep water. More bass have probably fallen to this set up than any other.

Think wood, weed stone and shade

- Fish the spinnerbaits around the same areas, letting them run slower near the bottom and faster near the surface. This is "Move and Search" fishing. This bait is neck and neck with the Texas-rigged worm in terms of success.
(If I could only have one bait for bass, I'd take the Colorado bladed spinnerbait).

- Vary retrieve speeds and depths until you get some reaction.

- Statistically, most bass are caught from mid-morning to late afternoon. Plan accordingly.

He probably knows as much about it as we two, combined. Listen to him.

Very good info here. Thank you. I still have yet to catch my first fresh water bass.

Well, I'm no expert, but I fish and read a lot. What I've offered here has, by most accounts, resulted in more fish caught than anything else. It has stood the test of time and none of it will set you back much money.

People have made their fortunes on little else, if that helps.

Good luck and we love pictures (hint, hint)  Very Happy
