Snipatuit Pond - only 7 minutes from my driveway *thumbs up* According to the Mass wildlife site it has largemouth, chain pickerel, yellow perch & northern pike. My wife & I fished there the other day for an hour and got a few hits, but nothing landed... so I went back today, before this afternoon's thunderstorms moved in. Forum member timmo gave a few Sizmic toads the other day when we happened to meet at Big Bear Hole Pond, so I tied one on and on my 5th cast BINGO! Thanks Tim! I also caught a chain pickerel on silver/yellow Mepps spinner.
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.
