Boy, Boone has been pounded the last number of years. The weed kills don't help either. Just stunned how bad this place is turning into. Chuck and I put in 5 hours(130ish to 730ish. Water temp was about 75, water looked terrible, grass was brown, and the bite stunk. If you think a reaction bite would work...nope try again. Now we both caught about a dozen bass each, but combined if we had 5 keepers, it was for 4.5lbs. 8-11in bass were around. Got a few keepers pitching into some pads, and also got a 12" bullhead the same way on a chigger chaw. Even the Pickerel bite was off, only catching 2 of them. This place needs a breather, christ!
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.
