Stopped off 109 in Dedham and went down to the bank of the Charles. Light rain, cloudy, comfortable temp. I started throwing a white double blade spinner and hit nothing for about 25 minutes. I throw out a senko and hit two small LMB. I decided to use a round jig head with a Havoc pit boss and bounce it across the river bottom....first cast hung up and my line eventually breaks. So I tie another on toss it out to the middle of the river. It feel it hit the bottom and feel the big thump, I set the hook and my rod bends over and this thing is diving in the bottom and what I think is wrapped up in weeds. Slowly dragging it in and it gets about 2 feet from the bank and I see the head of about a 12 pound snapping turtle. I was PISSED I thought I had a monster that got hung up. I got my long needle nose pliers and went to drag it out but he got his claw on the braid and frayed/snapped the line. So there goes jig head #2. I hook my last one and next cast catch about 1.5-2 lbs LMB. Switch over to a buzz bait and catch one about 2 feet off shore buzzing across the weed line. I send it back out that way and get another hit of something bigger but missed. At this point I get excited and sped my cast out there and wrapped the buzz bait around a low hanging branch.....lure number 3 gone haha. Rough day but at least it was productive and eventful for 2 hours of fishing
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.
