Had some time to go out fishing and I figured I would continue my search for the best bass lake in my area. Unfortunately this was not it. I saw a bunch of bass fry and saw one 6" and a five or larger pound class bass. With only one good fish seen, and none caught in over 5 hours I would say there are a few bass in the lake. I don't know if it was the day but I had nothing for them and I threw my best stuff. I went even as far as breaking out the old school keitech spider grub and still got nothing. I decided at about 9 to swap to my old faithful 1.0 bluegill square bill and have a trawl at dusk for some trout. I pulled one large bow about 2.6 lbs at nine thirty on the north end of the lake. The fish had beautiful color and once unhooked I let her be free again. I took a risk trying to find the best bass lake around and got to see a new lake and a pair of eagles cruising around. Not a win but not a place I will take the time to return to.
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.
