Family vacation to Fern Lake. Went there in 2012 when I just started fishing and only caught a couple bass for the week on rubber worms and a push button reel. A few years later I go there with 5 rods and hundreds of $$ worth of tackle! LOL and i nail it, smallies everywhere! and LGmouths too. Tried everything in my tackle box but senkos worked best, go figure. Lost 4 or 5 on chatter baits as I usually do, out of the water shacking! It seems every fish came out of the water fishing up there and I lost a lot and caught a lot. No pike or walleye. I was told by a local the stocked 1500 walleye last year there. Thought I share some pis. Great lake, would recommend renting up there, cheap and beautiful. Lots of trails for hiking as well.
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.
