Went to the river at the crack of dawn Saturday morning and stayed until about 9:30am. The conditions were perfect and the topwater bite was hot! I mostly threw a pop-R for the first 1 and 1/2 hours and switched over to green pumpkin and watermelon candy plastic worms.
The herring were still very active, splashing on the surface in swarms. I caught a couple with a gold Kastmaster and landed a small white perch, too. I also saw a 5-6 pound carp casually cruise by and wish I had some corn or bread on me!
All in all, I caught 6 largemouth (the biggest about 2.5 pounds), 1 smallmouth, a couple herring and a white perch. Last week I caught a surprise schoolie striper at the same location.
A very productive spot for many species and a great morning!
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.
