I was tired of my usual spots and saw this small pond on my iPhone map, and I headed to it. I'm pretty sure it's private for the neighborhood, but I didn't seem to bother anyone.
I walked down a wooded hill and found a perfect bass spot. It was a small, shaded cove with several groups of lily pads and a couple logs in the water.
I was using a Yamamoto Senko (green pumpkng with purple and copper flakes) Tex-Posed and weightless. Second pitch into the lily pads I landed a tiny bass (maybe 6 or 7 inches). I started pitching more toward the log and BOOM! The Senko went flying into the air and my line went down hard. After a decent fight, I pulled the biggest bass I've ever caught!
19 inches, and I was sure he was at least 4 lbs. When I weighed him, he was just over 2 lbs. I was kinda disappointed, but he was huge. Still an awesome bass.
One thing that SUCKED BAD was when I has removing the hook, I accidentally stepped on my Shimano reel and broke it in half. I hope the warranty will cover it.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
