I have a castable fish finder and notice the bass are?

Suspended between 2-4 in a pond that is 7 ft deep on average. I cannot bottom fish a texas rig if they are 2-4 ft up. I can resort to shiners but i only do that once in awhile as i like to improve on my techniques. tHis time of yr in florida they seem to have already spawned. THis time last year i was able to land alot of fish and a 6 lb avaerage is the norm i actually caught a 12pounder in the weed around the edge with a frog. The attack was ferocious and fun but there is no longer any weeds as they have added carp to keep down on the weeds. Any suggestions??
