I had the opportunity to head out for a couple of hours Monday after work. I decided to check out Pratt Pond since I've driven by it many times but never fished there.
I launched and paddled my way past the Cemetery on the right. I started casting a bit towards the shore but then realized that it was packed with people shore fishing.
So I continued on until I was past the masses. Tucked away in the back there were lots of weeds and a little bit of structure to cast towards.
I started with the Frog and got a taker almost immediately. Unfortunately, I lost him pretty quickly. A little while later I got another fish to take the frog, got him all the way to the boat then he jumped. And all was lost.
Not feeling the frog anymore I switched rods to the trusty senko. After a couple of well placed casts I hook up with 3 fish in a short time period. All in the 1-2 lb range.
Since the sun was on it's way down I decided to move to the other side of the pond for one last hurrah. This area was super weedy/paddy, almost sludge-like.
I switched back to the frog and got a 2+ lber to smash the frog 5 feet from the boat. He swallowed the frog so I didn't lose that one.
Lesson of the day: Work on my hook setting skills with the Frog :)
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.
