Pond Fish Behaves Differently!
Understanding of Pond Fish Behaviours will give you a better understanding to catching them.
Fishes at the smaller ponds are used to feeding on "fish food" rather than chasing for live bait. However since D’best main pond is big enough, it offers different species of fishes different conditions and areas that they can lurk. You are also better to try and change strategies while fishing there.
Type of Rigs, Baits & Lures to Use at D’Best Pond
1. Soft Plastic Bait;
This soft plastic bait is extremely fascinating. Whether you are at Dbest Main Pond or Pro Pond, you will definitely get lots of catches with this paddle tail lure. Squishy Lagoons (meansuring 7cm) is extremely effective, easy to use and highly deadly.
We invited over 20 seasoned lurers at D'Best to try the Squishy Lagoons. After 3 hours of non-stop fishing and catching over 100 fishes, they concluded that the best 3 colours for DBest waters are Watermelon, Blackberry & Dragonfruit. Based on their feedback, we created a D'best Combo Set.

2. Fishing Rigs:
SGFishingRigz Pond Multiplier Rig
When Baiting, depending on what type of fish you are targeting and the area you are fishing at, different rigs will produce different results. Environmental conditions also play a part. There are no hard and fast rules. Familiarity with the place and your own experience of fishing there is the key. You need more than 1 style of rig. If dead meat doesn't work, try live prawns, if live prawns don't work, try live fish, if bottom fishing don't work, try fishing top or middle using floats, if nothing else don't work, try lures, especially our Squishy Lagoons.
If you are the rigs guys, try our Pond Multiplier Rig. It is very effective in D'Best. Each packet comes with 2 different rigs. One rig comes with a 15g float to target top fishes while the other rig comes with a sinker to target bottom fishes. You can also adjust the length of the rig to suit the different water depths.
3. Everest Quickcatch Lures
Slow Sinking Jerkbait
The GT is a fish that shows no mercy. In the wild, it’s known as an apex predator. These fish are crazy strong and will give you a heck of a ride when you hook one on. They will never go down without a fight. To us anglers, this means Fish On
Being an aggressive gamefish, GT will not hesitate to attack! The Everest QuickCatch helped us score many Juvenille GTs at D’Best.
The seductive zigzag action and flashing hips of the Everest Quickcatch will catch the interest of even well-fed prey. It can be used in various ways; slowly with long pauses, a simple straight retrieve or the double twitch and pause.
