I was too lazy to get in a boat on the Charles so I fished the shore for a little. I've caught a lot of bass at this small reservoir from the shore including a solid 4 pounder. A lot of people bunch up and always fish this cove and I've never really caught anything there. I've never seen anyone catch anything in there either. I did my thing and kept moving away from the pressure and went to my go to lure - 5" Senko. Cast, cast, slam. Line shot out, set the hook, pull in a solid bass. Not bad for a quick shore trip.
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.
