Significant Factor(s):

The fact that I scaled down my tackle increased the numbers of bites. The pond was crystal clear and I know the light gear was the reason i got that bass to bite.

The Story:

I never saw the fish. I had been swimming the Slider on top of some submerged weeds and dropping it down the edges. The bass just sucked it it and the line got tight. Classic Slider bite.
