With the BASS Nation club vs club tournament coming up, my bud Paul and I had planned to represent Avid Anglers. So we headed out for the an 8 hour session to look some area over. The weed kill last month certainly made this place barren. Some spots were ok, some water we eliminated. The bite was tough, although at the end of the day the numbers were there, just tough to find the quality. We each had probably 10 Largemouth, and 10 Smallmouth. Paul's best was a 3lb Largemouth. My best was a 2-1/4lb Smallmouth, and 1-1/4lb Largemouth. Our best 5 was about 8-1/2lbs. Lots of 1lbers, and smaller. Bonus fish included a Pickerel, a Bluegill, and some Huge Calico was one being a new personal best at 1lb 13oz.
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.
