Lurkerofthedepths and I decided to wake up a bit early and hit the lake. When we got onto the water and there was a steady clip of rain and a solid southerly wind with totally overcast skies: the perfect storm for bass.
We knew the bass would be holding close to shore along the weed beds and we were right. Within an hour we'd both caught several bass with a few of them being close to 2 pounds - nothing crazy but enough to keep us excited. We continued to follow the shoreline casting at every lilly pad bed, overhanging branch, or really any piece of cover we could find. After two hours we'd combined for over 20 bass. We'd go on to fish for a few more hours and haul in another dozen or so before heading into shore to dry off and get some lunch.
Overall a damn good day on the water with plenty of great fish caught between the two of us.

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.
