I had two hours from when I dropped the kids off at school, until I had to be at work, so I hit the Concord River specifically looking for Catfish. I had an 8lb test line.
Within minutes I had a huge hit, and I knew it had to be something big. I was hoping for a channel cat, but it's speed told me that it was a Carp. Like I said, I had an 8lb test, so I didn't think I'd be able to get it in. I was right. I set the drag super loose, and managed to get it to within a 10 feet of the shoreline and it was gone.
I still had an hour and 45 minutes, so I went back to trying to catch some catfish and instead ended up with 4 carp, in about an hour's time. With the light line I set the drag loose and it took forever to get each one in.
I had no tarp or anything because I wasn't expecting anything bigger than bullhead or a catfish, so the first one I didn't even pull out of the water all the way, undid the hook, and sent it back on it's way. The bank was muddier than it looked, so when I caught the other 3, I placed them on a rock that was behind me to work out the hook.
To top it off, on the way back to my car I caught this snake, which as you can see by the pics, just devoured something.
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.
