So I gave this spot a 3/5 stars, and thought I would swing by on my way home today. Was itchin' to test out my new rig, so I tossed on a watermelon/orange-red w/copper flake Senko rigged Texas style and headed down the trail.
Usually fished the Rt.133 side of this pond with very little luck, but this time I tried to find a trail around the back. Found a trail and went around the southern end of the pond and fished a few shallow areas. Few bites but I think it was a little too shallow for your hefty Larrys.
I moved a little bit further down the trail and casted about 20 yards out. Tons of milfoil in the area, so I would tug at the line until it felt free of the weeds and I let it sit. Typically, I only catch bass when I let the worm sit, and if I reel it in, a Pickerel usually comes along and bites at it.
With the worm sitting there, I saw the line so tight and my new Ugly Stick is the shizznizzle and I was able to feel a really light, but unmistakable tug. Set the hook as if Bill Dance was watching and the fight began. Hooked a nice 3lb larry, pic doesn't do it justice as I was trying to balance on a tiny rock, hold my rod and the fish, while taking a pic.
Stayed at that spot for another 45 mins and caught another 2lb'er on the retrieve. Will be returning to this spot for sure!
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.
