I did so look forward to this warm rain with south wind. I started fishing at 04:30 early in the morning, but did get no bites during the first one hour. I almost gave up catching a fish this time again, but when I cast a Pico Pop a few inches away from a fallen tree and gave it a pause for a couple of minutes, this huge bass suddenly grabbed it. I strongly set the hook, enjoyed the fight, and carefully landed her. She was much bigger than I expected, and weighed about 5lb! 

Because of the rain drops on the lens of my camera, and maybe partly because I was a little excited, it was very difficult for me to take pictures. I also wanted to let her go as soon as possible. I was very happy to finally start my fishing season of this year. 

By the way, the lure I fished this time is one of the special lures I recently ordered from Pico. Last night, I got it from a new package, and sharpened the hooks. I'm wondering if I should put it into my 'the Hall of Fame' tackle box, though I have used it only once today. 

Today's tackle: ABU Record 5000 (BLK), Phillipson Challenger (9055 rebuilt), Stren 14lb (clear/blue fluorescent), Pico Pop, Heddon Zara Spook, Lucky 13, Wounded Spook, etc.
