I got to the same pond as yesterday at 04:10 and started fishing. The rod and reel combination was fine, and I felt comfortable with them.
Yesterday's fishing suggested fish would still be very slow, so I selected a 3-hook lure that I can retrieve steadily, Gilmore Hoodler. When I quietly cast it to a small shallow area, I saw a small movement of water just behind it. I waited for several seconds, and gave the first subtle action. Then again, I saw water move. I paused for several seconds again, and gave a trembling action to the bait. At last, the bait slowly passed from my view with no splash and sound, and I set a hook hard. It was a nice muscular bass, and I managed to catch it.
Today's tackle: ABU Ambassadeur 4500AL, Phillipson Royal RC60, Stren 12lb (Clear/Blue Fluorescent), Jitterstick, Gilmore Hoodler, Zara Spook, Pico Pop, Meadow Mouse, etc.
