So far this year, in one pond i was taking bass by stripping in a Clouser minnow in really fast. And in another pond they weren't interested in ANY THING. I saw big one eating flies under the surface but she wouldnt bunch for any thing else.

I totally agree with Mystillwater, though there are times when I don't recast it out right away. Ill twitch it and let it sit because they will follow to the very end. I do that until the fly reaches me. But if you really want to catch fish toss any thing into some floating vegetation and just let it sit twitching in every now and then. They will explode on it.

Is this typical that largemouth haven't been active/aren't taking much yet at this point in the year? If so, when do they normally turn on?

the experience i was relaying is specifically for largemouths on lakes.

the bass are definitely biting in my experience. and i'm only really fishing poppers for them. you've just got to fish the right time of day... when the light is indirect (i.e. not right overhead... about 4pm and later or 5am to 10am). also, as i mentioned, i use the same techniques/gear for fishing panfish in similar water to where i'm catching the bass so i'm not particularly impatient about the bass biting. i'm pretty busy with a little guys until the big boys come out and scare off the round ones!
