Back at Snipatuit Pond for an hour or so before supper... it's spitting rain on and off the whole time, but it doesn't really bother me that much. Tried a Zoom Super Fluke and a plastic worm, but got no takers. I tie on my favorite lure - a spinnerbait. About 4 casts later, a strong fish grabs my lure. A serious fight later - I was shocked at how much he fought - I landed a 3 1/2 pounder. (see pic) Nice larry!! I'm just a shore angler who is extremely limited as to where he can fish(and how long, but that's me, not lake access), and I'm catching some really nice fish... imagine what kind of big fish are actually in this lake... out there somewhere?! *grin*
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.
