Got out Sunday morning at about 6am. Bit earlier than I would have liked considering the cooler weekend, but you gotta get out when you can...The water was extremely calm and clear early, and no activity at all in the water. Few birds flying around was the only sign of life. Hit a few spots in the northern section of pond, and nothing. Wound up on the other side in the northern section and got my first bass of the day at about 8 am in a small section of lily pads (which are really starting to come in) near a small drop off. This was on a lizard type soft bait, and it took at as I left it sitting in the stems as I was fiddling with something on my kayak, so slow to stop was the key. It was about a 2lber. After this the wind picked up and things got tough (on a kayak). I caught 3 more LM, two keepers probably a bit under 2#, and one maybe just under legal limit. These were all caught on tubes on the wind blown side of pond. Two in some pad stems, one off shore a bit in a small channel. The wind by this time had taken over and it was becoming difficult to maneuver and hold any type of position. Caught a couple crappie as well for fun (2 males, dark all over right now), as they are always willing to bite and can be fun (and big here). Called it a day at 10am. Water was about 62 by this time, up from the high 50's when I got on.
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.
