Canalratt and I took advantage of the nice weather yesterday and headed out to a couple familiar places. Place #1 had the pads coming in nicely so we threw the frog..... A few swipes but no serious commitments. Switched over to the jig and pounded the shorelines. We got maybe a dozen bass here with Tony scoring the biggest bass of the day. A nice healthy 5.8lber. The jigs bites at pond 1 were light to say the least. Tony also scored a 4lber and our best 5 was probably 16+ lbs. We tried to get a swimbait bite going but could not get one. My swimbait reel broke about 20 minutes into throwing the big wood so that was the end of that for me. We moved to pond #2 and stuck with what was working.... The jig. No biguns here but we made up for size with pure numbers. 30+ bass here in about 4 hours. Again the bite was light to start but then about an hour in they started either crushing the jig or picking it up and running out of the cover with it.
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.
