this will be short, i fished the connecticut river for my first time yesterday...7/05/08.. and learned you need to fish it with real crawlers or real shiners! anyhow, i caught nothin but wet feet!!! I seen them surfacing in pools off the main body but wouldnt hit anything i gave 'em for the life of me! I still had a great time and now know better for the next time i fish it which will hopefully be next weekend. I hope to catch a striper out of there!That is my goal for the river. I will also say this, having a boat would also be in my favor!!!!!!!!!
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.
