Started with the same lure

I got up at 03:00 AM and left my house at 04:10. I got skunked in the first pond I visited, then I drove to another. When I cast my Gilmore Hoodler to sunken trees near the shore and slowly gave it a small action three times, an unexpected big explosion occurred at the water surface. I set a hook firmly and immediately found the fish big. Very luckily, the hooks were tightly placed at the side of the mouth, and I could take a movie before landing.

She was a very beautiful bass with reddish eyes. I guess maybe she has never been fished before. The size was about 3-3/4lb (1.7kg) and 19-1/2 in (49cm).
After I finished fishing in this pond, I tried to go to other ponds, but it started to get very windy and then I went home. I felt greatly pleased with today's fishing.

Today's tackle:
ABU Record 5000 (BLK), Phillipson Challenger (9055 rebuilt), Stren 14lb (clear), Gilmore Hoodler and various kinds of Heddon lures.

Giimore lures are very simple with thin kind of artless paint, but they are very productive.
