I stopped by Menotomy Rocks Park in Arlington on the way home from work to enjoy the weather a bit. After a quick walk around Hills Pond and seeing many bass (mostly very small, but at least one good sized) in the clear shallow water, I grabbed my rod to see what I could find. Lots of small bass here, I did not even see a single species other than largemouth. Not sure what they eat, maybe frogs. Maybe that's why they are so small. I caught 3 dinks and had numerous little bites. A guy there said there is a five pounder in there that he caught twice (not big enough for two five pounders!). I didn't see it.
It's a nice park with some lawns, picnic tables, playground, and good shore access. A good place to take kids to learn to fish for bass. I think I'll take my son here when he gets older. Not recommended if you're looking for a lunker...
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.
