This was my first time here and I did not have huge expectations given it was mid-afternoon, about 3 p.m., and I only had a few hours to fish.
But I set to working the shoreline in the southern end of the rez with a senko worm and started to hit pay dirt after a half hour or so. First a tiny 8" dink largemouth, then a nice 13 incher, an 11 incher, a 15" pickerel, and finally another 11" largemouth, plus I lost another one maybe a foot long just short of the kayak. Lots of other hits too. I think if I had been able to stay a few more hours until dusk it would have continued to be productive.
All in all a pretty good debut trip for me there. Nothing huge, but lots of fun and consistent action.

But little guys turn into big guys at some point right? I have heard of the occasional big guy coming out of there.My thoughts: trout = big bass. This place gets stocked well. Them small trout plump up the bass nice!
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.
