Bright sunshine, cold and windy. A sunfish on the shoreline to the right of the dam. 1 pickerel 13" and 1 decent bass 13" in the first inlet off the main lake. 1 bass 9" in the second inlet. Without a topo map this lake could be dangerously shallow. Be careful around islands. The sunfish was caught with a jerkbait, all others were caught deep jigging in weeds.
There are definately some dangerous shallows in this pond. The eastern cove is shallow, but its approaches on either side of the island can be worse. During the summer, as you come into the main water from the launch/dam area to the north, make a wide turn to the east if you wish to enter that cove. If you leave to the south, stay off of the island and lay off the throttle to keep your back end up. There is a bar or two reaching from the island.
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.
