Good outing on the Concord river in Billerica in the rain this Saturday. Pulled in several Bullhead Catfish, a Bluegill (surprisingly) and a Carp on Dough Balls.
The Bullheads were all 10 - 12 inches in length, nothing to write home about. This was the first carp I've successfully landed, but it was 16-18 in length and probably weighed 5lbs. While targeting different fish I've hooked into two other fish in this area that I would assume were carp that felt much larger then the one caught today.
All in all a good day. Plenty of fish, a bridge to provide cover from the rain, and my first successful Carp Catch.
As a FYI drifted worms under the bridge here provided some nice Perch and various Sunfish on a different trip.
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.
