    Does anyone else fish the pond/catch bass out of it? Private or public? What lures are you throwing? Could be lots of things.

      That's why it's called fishing not catching.

        Ten percent of the fishermen catch ninety percent of the fish. The trick is to know more about fishing than the other ninety percent.

          It wouldn't hurt to read the fishing articles in Field and Stream.

            Most likely weather conditions making the fish not want your presentation. When you don't get fish after hours on a certain bait, you most likely need to change it up.

              Work the pond, fish what's in front of you, and keep moving if nothings there. Spinner baits are my go to in new waters.

                A pond like that depending on its size can play an effect on the fish due to climate change. If it gets colder at nite than the fish will be more likely to be slower and not want to feed. So the slower the bait presentation should be. As it warms up then the more movement in the bait should get a bite. Sometimes if the climate is just changing they sometimes just don't want to eat. Need time to adapt.

                  I go to a few spots in my area that have large mouth and small mouth bass, but I can’t seem to even get a nibble. My friends are able to catch a few though. I feel like I’m doing something wrong. I have about $100 worth of lures in my tackle Tutuapp 9Apps Showbox box that I use, but haven’t had any luck with any of them.

                    Well, that's settled. Ignore.

                      If you can’t get a bite from a bass then you are doing something wrong. If you can’t get them on a lure then just stick a worm on and throw it in front of their face.

                        Move around and change bait if not getting hits. Watch what others that are catching fish are using. Light and colors, water condition and bait color all play a part to, if one is not working , try another. Try different times of day. Don't keep doing the same thing over and over if it is not working.
                        I like to try a purple worm Texas rigged if things are slow.
