Joel and I went out for some Pickerel fishing, Loaded up the boat early with some shiner, breakfast, and some drinks. We hit out favorite spot. Pickerel weren't having it. Joel put 2 dinky bass on the boat so we moved to the other section of the pond out of the weeds looking for a good hole and drop off to hit. Finally found where some weeds gave way to about a 15 foot deep hole. Skinny and about 70' long. We were casing Rubber worms against the edges. Nothing, Nothing, Nothing. Then BAM! Thought I got fouled up in the weeds(Again for like the 100th time) and my reel started screaming. Adjusted my drag, made some headway and then it took it again, adjusted my drag, made some headway, and the same thing (thank god for braided line). Finally saw the beast in the water and Joel started yelling for the net. pulled him on the boat and we were both amazed. This was the Largest bass all season. Finally! I caught my Lunker! we weighed him quick, measured him and quickly put him back in. (wish I took more pic's but I wanted to get him in the water asap because we were fighting for awhile and didn't want to over stress him).
5lbs14oz (just under 6lbs) 22inches long
This fatty made my season, been looking for him all summer.
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.
