So, after a crappy (not crappie) morning at Canton Res I regrouped and decided to make another foray to the Charles in Dedham. This time I launched at a new location, behind the Dedham Recreation facilites on Route 135 behind the ball field. Almost immediately I was into a nice 3lb bass. Sadly, this was the only fish of the day. But I did enjoy a nice paddle down to Bridge Street and back. And there certainly was LOTS of structure that must have contained fish (if only I were skilled enough to tempt them).
If you want the big boys sometimes you have to throw caution to the wind use a cheap bait like a rubber worm won't hurt as much if you lose it and if hooked weedless you can get into some of that cover with no worries!
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.
