Fished yesterday in the Metrowest area. Zipped home from work and loaded the kayak as soon as possible. Made it to the lake shortly thereafter and was on the water by 4:30pm. Weather was off and on rain, but mostly cloudy and calm wind. Water temps in the mid 50s - my thermometer was reading 56 the whole time.
The bite was pretty slow overall. Caught two decent bass, one in the low 2lb range and one that the scale called 3lbs even and a few slime darts; one being of the skinniest looking pickerel I've ever seen.
When the fish weren't biting, I made friends with an enormous snapper...check the pics, I was a little scared to stick my hand in the water to take the pictures!
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.
