went out for an hour after class to kill sometime and relax after a brutal test in physics i need to get away. i was fishing the first beach for about a half hour and didnt get a bump. so i left and went to another beach that was on the wind blow shore but the wind wasnt to bad so i decided to give it a shot first cast i felt a tap tap and set the hook but i ripped it out of its mouth and lost my worm in the process! but i put another one on and through it back out three casts later i felt another tap tap.. so this time i dropped my rod tip and when i set the hook again this time i felt the connection and it was fish on!! i brought the fish in, it was a small bass that weighed about a pound. i quickly let the fish go an put it back right in the same spot and sure enough another bump but did not hook up this went on for another 3 or 4 casts and then on the 5 time i set the hook an then the line goes limp..... just lost my whole rig =/ so im just about to call it a day but decided to tie up another drop shot. this time i left a longer leader and next cast i feel something kill my robo worm i set the hook and the fish takes off straight up and goes air born!! SMALL MOUTH!!! i could tell that body shape and that aggression from anywhere so i took my time bringing her. the fish had awesome markings!! I finally got smallie after a 2 week grind!! snapped u couple pics and sent her on her way!!
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.
