me and my buddy Mike went to quabbin reservoir today. we left my house at 330 this morning. We got to gate 43 at about 4:30 and waited till 5:50 to get to rent a boat. renting the boat was a lot easier than I thought it would be. We headed out not really knowing where we were going. for the first 10 minutes or so we kind of followed where the other boats were going. Eventually I saw a bunch of sunken Islands. We started to fish there and around 830 my buddy Mike got the first fish of the day. It was a Laker about three and a half pounds. About 10 minutes later I got my first Laker it was about a pound. After a couple more follows and misses we tried a new spot. At about 10 o'clock Mike caught the first small mouth of the day it was about 2 pounds.some time went by we weren't getting much so I decided to troll a rapala.after a short while I hooked up with my first smalley of the day.my Laker was caught on a kastmaster and mikes on a big crocodile like spoon. All the fish were caught in about 6-8 feet of water. His smalley was caught on the same spoon. all in all I had a fun day and would definitely do this again.
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.
