I have been sick for the last couple days and have been going stir crazy. Woke up feeling better and hit the Lower Basin for 2 hours.
First cast and I caught a bass! It hit a Swithwick Rattling Rogue. Ended up with 10 bass and 1 crappie on the Rogue. Also did catch my first float n fly fish today, it was a crappie. Most of the bass were about 1.5lbs, and I caught 3 in consecutive cast which kept me warm for a bit.
Would have liked to have fished longer but the wind was right in my face and was not helping out my cold. It was a good start and hopefully bigger things to come!
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.
