In the first pond, which is very famous among local anglers and so many of them often fish, I got a few small bites and caught a small bluegill with a Chugger Spook. I gave up fishing there and headed to the next pond. The weather was cloudy, so I was thinking I would have some more chances to catch bass.
After about 15 or 20-minute drive, I got there and re-started fishing. I tied a Pico Pop (black shore color) and cast it near-shore spots one by one. When I cast it into a small spot under overhung trees, which you can easily see a prime point, my line slightly got caught on leaves of the trees. I twitched my rod a few time, and then immediately my bait sank underwater without any splashes and sounds. I suggested it as a bite and set a hook hard. Yes, it was a nice bass hitting my bait! I enjoyed fighting with it and finally caught it.
After I caught this bass, I also got some more bites with a Lucky13, Wounded Spook, and a few others. Some bass were spooky and didn't bite hard, some male bass were protecting their juvenile bass, and some attacked my baits with a big blowup. One that I caught with a Wounded Spook was also a good fighter and I enjoyed a lot.
This time, I tried editing my videos using a GoPro application. I can't fully master it, but here is one that I made for today's fishing.
Today's tackle: ABU Ambassadeur 5000 De Luxe, Phillipson #705, Daiwa Sight Surf #4 (yellow), Heddon Big Bud, Chugger Spook, Zara Spook, Lucky 13, Wounded Spook, Pico Pop, etc.
