After leaving too early last time I came, due to other non-fishing commitments (perish the thought), I was determined to stay until nightfall for my second venture on Dudley.
And yeah, I took the advice of MAFF friend Chris Ravosa and did a wacky rig on my usual senko worm, rather than Texas-style weedless. It paid off pretty well, with a 2 pound LMB, a 16 inch pickerel, and a couple of smaller bass.
Equally fun was watching another group of fishermen, a trio of raccoons working the shoreline in one of the coves as the sun set. :-)
As I pulled up to the launch next to the Chat, just as it was getting really dark, a father and son team were setting off in their jon boat to fish the night shift. :-)
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.
