Good fishing as intended

I left my house at 03:40 and headed for a pond near our place. I got there before daylight, so I first tied a Jitterstick (5/8oz, RH), because it makes a big nose on the water surface. I found a school of small minnow near the shore, and cast it over the school. Then, this fish suddenly hit my lure while I was retrieving it. It was a very good start I made.

Then, I cast the same lure near bushed shore, and gave it a few dog-walk actions. Again, another fish (larger than the first one) went over it.
When the sun rose, I could not find the school any more, so I cast to spots near the shore. At a reedy area, I changed lures to a Lucky 13 (D) and gave it various kinds of actions. When this fish rushed at it, I immediately realized it is a lunker. Her fight was very hard, but I could manage to catch her. She was a 4-1/2lb (about 21 inches long) bass, the record of myself during this fishing season.

Today's tackle:
ABU 3500CDL & Mr. Don SH-56, Stren 12lb (Hi-Vis Gold), Jitterstick, Lucky 13, Zara Spook, Zig Wag, Chugger Spook, Wounded Spook, 210, Moss Mouse, etc.
