The wife and I fished Norumbega Park this afternoon for a couple hours.
She caught a large bluegill on a 1/8 oz Phoebe rainbow spoon. I caught a keeper largemouth on a 3" Slim Watermelon Senko with black and red flakes, fished drop shot.
While we only caught two fish, we had a good time.
To get to this spot: - turn off Commonwealth Ave. onto Islington Road. - Go to the end of Islington Road and there will be places to park on Islington Park. - Go to the end of the river path. - At the end of river path, there will be places to fish on the bank on the left.
Things to know about this spot: - The bank is can be a bit steep and there a lot of roots. - There are also many trees, with a few openings. I find my 5' ft rod handier here than my 6'6" rod.
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.
