    you may be fishing too aggressively when using soft plastics slow WAY down. Also pay attention to what the fish are eating, it is hard to beat the real thing try using live bait. Night crawlers or shiners, play around with them and find out what strikes their fancy. Put a shiner 3 feet under a bobber and free line another one. Put some night crawlers on the bottom and see what you get.

      Might try waiting until just before and at dark. Perhaps a topwater like a Zara Spook, Jitterbug, or Skitter Pop.

      I also had luck in the daytime using small Rapala Jointed Minnows and Senkos. I tried for quite a awhile to entice my biggest bass to take flies and streamers. He ignored them all. But when a palm-sized bluegill latched onto my fly and got too close she inhaled it. The bluegill got away and I brought in the bass. My second biggest bass followed the same script.

        One thing that you can look into is check around at the local bait shops and see if there are local clubs. Sure there is local fishing clubs that has outings where they take younsters out fishing that have a hard time doing so. Ask around and pretty sure somebody would be glad to take you.

          Try using scum frogs. I fish a small pond in Texas and the only thing the bass take are the frogs and night crawlers.
