These are more of all my catches between 6/29/11 to 7/15/11.
To give details: I have been having good luck on Maspy these weeks, I never go on the weekend (with the gf), but I know that a kayak fishermans worst nightmares are wind and speed boats (lol).
All of the bass caught on this trip were decent fish, but I would like to talk about the two days that stood out.
One of the days I had caught a smallmouth on a jitterbug, wow, what a fight! He was over a pound and nailed my topwater like a champ! I was jittering over some famous rocks (at the great Maspy) and didn't think of doing so much until I got the strike. He dipped wicked low and came out of the water a good 5 times (which pissed me off because I lose a good amount of smallies that way on octopus hooks. I landed him and he is pictured in these pics. Another day I got "Hellmouth". She was a big gut female that was in only like 2 feet of water next to someones bass boat. She weighed in at 2.33 pounds (which is good for me lately) and she is also pictured in these pics. She is called Hellmouth due to the fact it was a hell of a time trying to land her because she kept spinning around someones dock and fighting to dip into tons of weeds.
Anyways, I liked this trip and I'm glad I put details in this trip and didn't leave it boring.
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.
