November Bass

This week, my daughter was hostitalized to have an ACL reconstruction. She now can't walk without assistance, so my wife and I are taking care of her. I took a day off today to help her, but could spare time for a short time early in the morning (before she got up), so I decided to go fishing. I could catch three bass with a Bass Oreno and Zig Wag.

October bass

I got skunked a couple of times in Sep-Oct, so I wanted to catch a bass by all means today. I first tied a Heddon RH Wounded Spook that I recently obtained, and luckily I could catch a bass as soon as I started fishing. It was a skinny bass, but fought hard.

I changeds baits to a Zara II, as water level there was almost full and I thought tighter dog-walk action would work. I could catch another bass with it, and succellfully took a video of the fight with the bass. Both bass were not so big, but as always size doesn't matter.


Today's tackle: ABU Ambassadeur 5000, Fenwick Lunker Gear LGX 38C, Daiwa Sight Surf #4 (orange), Heddon Wounded Spook, Zara Spook, Zara II, Pico Slasher, Nip-I-Diddee, etc.

Rugby-ball bass

I took a day off today, and went fishing. In the first pond, floating weeds were growing so widely that I could cast in only a limited are and got skunked. Then, I headed to another pond. When I started fishing again there, it's getting windy and I thought poppers and prop baits would work fine. I tied a Pico Pop and checked shore areas with it. Soon, an adult bass bit it. It was a good fighter and I could successfully catch it.

It got windier and winder, so I switched to a Mugnum Torpedo. Another bass showed a big blow-up, and I also enjoyed catching it.

It got so windy that I decided to fish in a small inlet. There're a school of bluegill in the back side of the inlet, and I caught some of them. I suggested a big bass, which learned to eat those bluegill, may have been hiding out somewhere near the school, so I cast a Nip-I-Diddee under an overhung tree.

I paused the bait until water ripples dissapered, then jerked it, paused again, and repeated the same actions a few times. BLOW-UP! I saw a big rugby-ball bass attack my bait with my own eyes, and immediately set a hook hard. It fought much harder than I expected. In gerenal, I know summer bass fight hard, but it was the hardest one among the bass I caught in this fishing season. Fortunately, the tackle I used today was a little heavier than thouse I usually use, and I could finally catch it. It was a well-muscled 4lb bass, though the body length was shorter than I first thought.


On the way back from this pond, I visited another area to check another fishing tackle combo, but I got skunked there. Anyway, I was completely satisfied with the result of today's fishing.

Today's tackle: ABU Ambassadeur 5000C, Phillipson 3M (F562), Daiwa Sight Surf #5, ABU Ambassadeur FIVE, Lew's Fuji Super Speedstick S1L-156, Daiwa Sight Surf #4, Heddon Zara Spook, 210, Lucky 13, Magnum Torpedo, Pico Pop, Southbend Nip-I-Diddee, etc.
