25 degrees at 7am maybe 45 degrees by 2,No wind made it a beautiful day. Barton s cove ramp is closed,But a friend of mine has a private ramp nearby and received permission to launch. 2 other boats arrived around the same time. we all congregated in the same area. You could hit the next guy if we wanted. but it was awesome we all talked and watched as someone caught a smallie. I took the early lead with 3-0 but by days end i had 7-12 my buddy has the feel for em. The fish seemed hunkered down in 40' water and the bite was a ever so slight tick or mush. lets just say hook sets are free.Being on your toes and expecting a bite every cast was the way to go! My friend has a titanium tipped drop-shot rod that is sick! I can't find one of them but I'll be i will be gearing up with the most sensitive rod i feel i can afford,lol Greta day, i learned more about the river and i must say i might have gone skunked if it wasn't for a good friend willing to share some knowledge. Can't wait to go again!
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.
