I got no reactions in near-shore spots at all, so I supposed bass could migrate around floating vegetation. I tried to cast my bait to small area between weed and weed, and retrieved slowly and steadily. A nice bass suddenly rushed to my Pico Pop just like the one I caught last week. It dived into weeds, but I finally landed it.
Today's tackle: ABU Ambassadeur 5000C (I chose this log-geared reel to save retrieving speed), Phillipson 3M B7L1 custom, Stren Clear Blue 12lb, Heddon Big Bud, Zara Spook, Chugger Spook, 210, Magnum Torpedo, Pico Pop, Mann's Popper, etc.
