Tried out Jacobs with my dad after a trip to Dick's Sporting Goods. We've heard a lot about the pond on MAFF and it was close, so what the heck. The evening was pretty dead, although my dad caught a little yellow perch. Some guy on a kayak also caught his personal best (5.5 lbs) and told us about it. No fish for me though. Great place to fish. Super quiet and plenty of spots to fish the shore or get a boat in.
I know they did a couple of years ago. Went over this morning and the weeds weren't bad at all. Got 7 or 8 bass all under 2lb. 3 picks, a couple of crappie and a couple of perch. Lost a few fish and had plenty of strikes. Not a bad morning.
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.
