What a great day we had fishing a small honey hole on Cape Cod. We were on the water by 5:45 under cloudy shies and heavy mist. Water temps were at 64 up from 68 on Thursday. The weather through everything at us from howling winds, light rain, heavy mist, fog, partly cloudy, partly suuny, ect.
I started throwing a blk/blu Boag Hawg jig with a Paca Chunk trailer. Within 20 casts I had 6 quality fish in the boat. My buddy had no luck with with a Rage Menace and even the Wacky Senko didn't work. He switched to Shaky head using a four inch SK finesse worm in the coppertreuse color and started catching them.
Over the next 9 hours we caught 100+ LMB's with almost all of them 2 to 4+lbs. Almost all of them were caught tight to shore or through the partially emerged pads. I aslo caught many on a Fat Albert curly tail grub watermellon with blk/red flake on a 1/8oz round jig head painted by yours truly. One my best days fishing ...... ever. Had a blast but a little sore today from the endless stream of fish being caught. Also got to see a pair of Bald Eagles. Days like this make it worth those tough days when you work your butt off and only catch a few fish. This will be a day to remember.
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.
