Another good day of fishing in one of my favorite carp spot. I had a couple of misfires but at least I caught one. I started the day off with a splash, the carp took the bait noticed it was hooked and jumped out the water. I run over to the rod try to bring him in and the hook comes out. Act 2 another take but this time the fish almost took my rod over the dock and yes I had my bait runner on, but must have had it turned up too high. Grab the rod and the line breaks, 14# vanish fluorocarbon broken, strong fish. Act 3 the charm, caught this one 7.40# the one in the pictures. Act 4 another good take but once again the line breaks. So it was a good day I could have bagged 4 carp but only got 1, but the action was on. I have to dial in my drag, calm down a little more and stop trying to bully these carp in. What can I say God is good.
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.
