I'd start with a Frog, Then lipless crank, then jig. I do like a red or white spinnerbiat. You got to just mix it up till they bite. Remember they will get smart so you have to use differnt baits.
Is the water kinda dirty, try a orange crank. Or a red jig.
If all fails, Throw a big Swimbait. or just finesse a worm off the bottom.
Learn how to run it.......

i like throwing power baits.blue fleck seems to work best for me.ponds warm up earlier then lakes around here and i use to hit them all the time.an assortment of lures is need to keep catching them all year around.early morning and late evening when i catch the most.

Frog fishing in shallow ponds is by far my favorite fishing. If they wont hit top water i go to a yum dingers 7' in blue.

This is the best advice ever. I have used the Powerbait Blue Fleck for the last 15 years about 90% of the time (Texas Rig).

Smaller ponds dont usually dont have much cover, so the Bass tend to stay close to the bank. The best thing you can do is cast along the bank instead of out in the pond.

Here is a post I made on my state forum. I was using the blue fleck, and my daughter was using live bait. All caught on a small pond and you should see that fish she caught on a snoopy pole (Damnnnnnnnnn)

Moss Boss for lily pads! Just run it right over the top,
stop, twitch repeat. Even when you miss it's awesome
watching them attack.

I like throwing senkos or hairy jigs in the muck.
That's where the bigger fish will be. Best lure
for locating fish...spinnerbait. that's my .02
Seriously get a couple of the Moss Boss's if there
are lily pads.

I know soft plastics have been mentioned, but try wacky rigging your worm, bass love the wobbling action the worm has as it falls to the bottom. Just cast it out, let it sink, then twitch it a couple to get it off the bottom, let it sink, repeat.
