Today, I got up early (03:00 AM) in the morning and visited several small ponds near our place. In the first pond, I got a couple of bites but skunked. You might enjoy a short movie of big splash hitting my lure (Heddon Zara II in GRA), though it didn't hook the fish.
In another pond, where I'd never fished before, I could catch two nice bass. One with Heddon Chugger Spook in LBS color, and one with Wounded Spook in SD color. The water quality there was very good, and both of the fish were beautiful.
I used one of my favorite fishing tackle today. W/famous ABU as you well know, Phillipson 3M F562 rod (hand-made by myself) and Stren Clear-blue 14lb tested.
