i fly fished and used conventional tackle at horse pond from about one in the afternoon to six thrity at night. i caught plenty of pumpkinseed and blue gill with the fly rod. with the conventional tackle i tried plenty of different tactics, jitterbug, pop-par, spinner bait, but the only thing that worked was a purple soft plastic worm that i let sink until it hit the bottom. it yielded a two pund largemouth bass, which became dinner.
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.
