I've tried every bait possible and my tilapia just sun on the surface taunting mel! We are having periodic cold fronts so I know they will die soon.

So my question is, what do I do with these fish when they die? Does anybody want to come help me fish out these fish before they die?

Help!

You've got buzzards and raccoons there, right?

Get a heavy duty spinning rod, and a large treble hook. Practice your casting skills and snag them.

Ours started eating at the feeders mid summer. We have been catching them easily on a 1/8th or 1/16th oz jig head with a piece of brown rubber worm/crawfish about the size of the fish food. We tried a piece of cork. They would hit it, but the hard cork made them miss the hook more often than not.

Try a small brown Stubby Steve on a number 8 hook under a small cork


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

It may help to chum with some fish food.
