We made another trip to Maine. I had intentions of traveling to different lakes while there but my fuel pump broke 1st, then my momentary on/off switch broke on trolling motor. So we made the best of it and fish the upper part of cobbossee. I figure seen the water temps were 55 deg they would still be pre- spawn. So the jerk-bait bite worked best.My son caught the first fish on a french fry then unfortunately he didn't have luck after that. I lost a monster large mouth (6lbs +"? ) after a battle he won. Then i proceeded to catch 3 pike,not big ones but i managed not to loose my jerk- bait. it was the toughest trip I've seen yet. But i managed we managed to catch some fish and enjoy the weather.
Nice Smallie I see in one of the pictures there. The Cob is a great lake to fish, usually. Get's more pressure than most of the other lakes up there, but still produces. I grew up right near there, and they didn't ice out until almost the 3rd week of april. I would say another 2 weeks, with some decent weather, and they'll be ready to roll.
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.
