Got to get out late today after dropping our daughter off to her first day back to school.We decided on a little shore fishing and hit up mare meadow again.Nice day but windy as heck.I hit the first one and new right away it was a beast.The battle was on and the fish went airborne,I still had him and he was sweet!Then the fish got caught up in a small blow down to my left,oh no!,then to my relief,he freed..I still have him!I finish reeling him in and its an easy 5lbs. Shannons yelling nice fish!As I reach down to lip him,as soon as I touch his lip,he takes a big shake and throws my hook,and he just sits there as dumbfounded as me.I grab at his tail but he powers away.ARE YOU KIDDING ME!I turn around and shannon already has the camera in her hands and it looks like she saw a ghost.I'm sure my face wasnt any better lol.I shook it off and kept fishing shaking my head every couple seconds and talking to myself lol.I mananged two get a few more fish of decent size,between 1 1/2 to 3 or so pounds.Just guessing because I left the scale at home(dummy).Also caught a couple toothy critters and dinks on the spinnerbait.Shannon was way off her game for some reason and couldnt buy a bite.She ended up with the skunk.Not a common thing for her at all.I'm basking in my glory because today I got the win lol.
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.
