Hit a few spots on the Cape for smallies but ended up with a mixed bag. Tough day with changing weather, cold water, and technical difficulties with the fish finder.
The fish seemed to be suspending out deep for the most part around white and yellow perch schools. Our fish were caught on finesse baits or a reaction strike with crankbaits. We didn't have many bites but made them all count. Probably ended up with around a 16 lb. bag. No real consistent pattern...largemouth were caught in about 4', 10', and 40'! Smallies in 2' and about 15'. Very strange day.
At least I got my personal best smallie at 4.7 lbs.
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.
