Well once again decided to fish cedar bluff lake this weekend since we did okay last weekend. I also added a new Lowrance fishfinder to the boat and wanted to try it out. Well we got out there about 12:15 and got the boat on the water. the wind was blowing quite a bit out of the south west. about 15-20 m.p.h. we wanted to troll the tree lines but it was way too difficult to troll and not end up in the trees and still be able to fish and mess with my new fishfinder all at the same time. so usually when it is this windy i just put out a drift sock and start drifting the lake so this is what me and my friend with me did. we started drifting from the middle of the lake into a tree line area that we fished last week. Well my friend hooked the first fish of the day not long after we started. It was a pretty decent wiper. It was a keeper. well we drifted some more throughout the day in different areas with some success. I hooked into 2 wipers, 3 white bass, and 1 crappie. the friend of mine was getting upset because i was the only one catching fish, he caught just the one wiper all day long, we did however miss at least 5 or 6 more fish. but i guess it wasn't too bad of a day. my fishfinder worked okay other then the temp reading which didn't work so i will have to figure that out yet.
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.
