I can't believe that I did so well catching big LMB at the farm lake and now it sucks. Went out again today (didn't want to take the hour drive both ways to fish for trout) and was rewarded with a single 7-inch bass for my efforts. I did see something that made my heart drop and most likely the reason the catch rate has take a drive. Swimming across the lake was a family of otters! Otters! Not much can wipe out all the fish in a lake like a family of otters. Damn. Well, that explains that. I have no idea how long the otters have lived at the lake so they may have had lots of time to eat all my bass.
