I went back up to sawyer lake this weekend for some Bass action and other assorted fish. I had heard stories of people catching smallmouth in the lake and wanted to see if I couldn't catch any. Though there were no smallmouth, I discovered two more species that dwelled in the lake. Some people next to me on the damn managed to catch about 8 white perch and two very large catfish! I also managed some more good sized bass.
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.
Almost a record. This was the larger of the two bass I caught, mesuring out at 17 inches, and almost beating my personal largemouth record of 18 inches. This one was caught at about 5 feet from shore. 06/05/11 05:32 PM
Darn sunnies... In the middle of the day, the Uncle and I went down tho the brook that feeds into the lake in hope of catching some Brook Trout. Instead all we caught were some pumpkinseeds.

Battles with the bucketmouths! The fish in the photo above was the smaller of the two, about 14 inches long. This one was caught about 20 yards from shore. 06/05/11 05:23 PM
Catfish Fever! This is a catfish that one of the guys next to me caught off of the damn. I had no idea they were even in this lake! 06/05/11 05:16 PM
