I went out for a few hours sunday to Lake Singletary. The plan for the day was to hit a couple spots to hopefully get into some smallies. Water temp was hovering around 48 degrees all morning and the wind was blowing pretty hard. I pulled up to my first spot and I immediately started marking fish on a hump that wen 20'-10'. The fish were stuck right on the base of the hump hanging out on the outside of the weeds. I marked the outside of the hump with 3 buoys and started cranking away. Within a couple casts my buddy in the boat hooks into a chunky 3lbish pickerel. After a few more cast he gets into another fat pickerel, about the same size as the first. We spent about 20 more minutes on that spot and moved to another similar spot. The 2nd spot was a large hump 40'-12'. As I motor over the spot I marked 3 large schools of baitfish at 23' with large marks underneath. I tossed out a couple buoys to mark the edges of the hump and started off with a dropshot. First drop down I get SLAMMED, after a good fight and thinking I had an ok largemouth. Nope, 2lb 4oz crappie. Over the next 20 minutes I land 5 crappie, largest at 2lb 7oz and the smallest 1lb 10z. That spot dried up, so we moved to an extended point. I tossed the dropshot around and picked up a 2lb smallie. All in all a great morning on the water. This was the first time I have ever actually weighed a crappie haha. John (angrymeat) it was nice seeing you at the ramp. Hopefully you guys at a good day out there.
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.
