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.
