I got a chance to get away and fish with my good buddy Ed on the Conn. River LAST SAT. truely a treat as he got to show me the river at 65 mph (my eyes have not stopped fluttering)and we scored a lot of smallies in the 2 - 3 lb range. Typical of the river the situation was smallies to the north, and though we did not get back down to the south before 1 pm we managed a single lm down south. I caught my first walleye a 1 1/2 lb monster and got to see, Rapidly a lot of the river, which we get to fish next week in a club tourny. Our smallies came from skinny water in the 2-3 ft range and wood was key to locating them. Baits used were senkos and my trusty mojo lizard, which did not catch up in the snags as expected. I rolled a big fish down south in the power station discharge, species unknown, and Ed caught a small Lm on a frog. Can't wait to go back and catch some more river Sms, but I may stay south and try for some early Lms 1st. Great day with a great friend that I do not get to fish with enough! Thanks Ed!
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.
