got to the lake about 10am - unfortunately, I was already heading down -495 when I realized I left the digital camera sitting on the dining room table. GRRR! It was a cool, cloudy day, temp in the high 50s/low 60s. I tried topwater, spinnerbait, & jig-n-worm, but got no hits - until I put on a Senko!(rigged weightless, Tex-posed, on a 4/0 Eagle Claw extra-wide gap hook) I ended up catching 5 chain pickerel and 2 largemouth bass, ALL on the Senko, in about 2 1/2 hours. All fish were caught in/near aquatic weeds in 2 feet of water or less.
The pickerel were absolutely murdering the bait, sometimes hitting it the very second it entered the water... they shredded my Senko and stole another one completely. I've only got 2 left in that color(watermelon black red flake)... time to go to Bass Pro Shops!
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.
