Good fishing again

Yes, I went fishing in a small pond this morning again. It was a little cool early in the morning, maybe because of the typhoon that passed away a couple of days ago. I first tied line with a Heddon Wounded Spook (XBW). I'm not generally good at double-prop baits, though I try to cast them as often as possible. Today, I decided to use Wounded Spook as a 'bug' and not to be conscious of their props on both ends. As a result, this nice fish (about 17 inches, 2-1/2lb) attacked it with a big splash. She was the first bass I caught with a double prop bait during this fishing season.

At another site, I cast a Chugger Spook (XRW) into a recess of the pond and retrieved it with a dog-walking action. Then I gave it a pause and started retrieving again. Thereupon this fat bass grabbed it away! She was almost as long as the first bass, but weighed more (3lb). I find many small fish and crawfish in this pond, and I don't think bass have difficulties to feed on them now.

Today's tackle:
ABU Record 5000 (BLK), Phillipson Challenger (9055 rebuilt), Stren 14lb (clear), Wounded Spook, Chugger Spook, Pico Pop, Lucky 13 (Wood), Zig Wag, etc.
