Left to try a new lake today. I am looking for a place to catch bass and i have yet to score. I observed two fish in the 3-4 lb class in this lake but unfortunately i was unable to catch either one. It was a beautiful hot day and i was very happy to be on the water. Rocked my brand new Berkeley flicker shad and cleaned house. It got 6 of the 9 i caught today but i believe the split rings or hooks are not perfect. The fish shook the hooks loose some of the times and i would have had more but lost 3 which i did not count. I may try some round bend hooks first as i dont have any small split rings on hand. The trout were not huge but i had 3 or so that were respectable and no really small ones so the day was not a total loss.
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.
