This season my friend told me about a place where he caught 5lbers on 2 consecutive trips. I finally had the chance to take my kids and their grandmother here.This place looks awesome for canoes and kayaks. We all headed down the way casting at everything in sight. My oldest son(11) was tired of fighting the wind so he found excitement chasing a beaver.So his grandmother followed.My 7 yr old and i continued down the way and he caught the first fish(pickerel). He relentlessly casted at anything and everything. i was just trying to position the canoe mostly. We made it around the corner and met up with my son and his grandmother. While talking about how nice the place is for recreation i casted next to a stump. I felt a tick, then it was game on! When i landed her she looked to be a 4 lber? I made another cast to same spot. Tick, and another ok fish in the 2lb range. I said geese guys you might want to cast a line here,lol. On the 3rd cast and 3rd fish in 5 minutes they decided maybe that was a good idea. I said lets just fish this little stretch before we head home. I caught a few more and let the kids reel em in. We all enjoyed this place and i definitely will give this place a try when hard-water arrives.
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.
