First trip to Horn Pond with my son (8 yrs) at 6am (I think Fishingreek was already there working the island, trolling motor on the front of a small john type boat?). Caught 2 LMB just north of the point that is near the island; the slope to flat area point between the island and the causeway working a white spinnerbait. Had a LMB near the wood between the causeway and ramp slam my spinnerbait, and then break-off at the boatside. Got to see him, nice fish probably 3-4lbs plus. Motivated me enough to switch my line today from 8 to 12 lbs mono. Day was saved for my son when he found a school of black crappie on a submerged tree in the cove just west of the island. About every cast he nailed one using Gulp crappie nibbles. He caught about a dozen and we could have probably caught more but Iwas getting worn out taking them off.
Monday worked the dam and weeds on Upper Mystic. About 6 LMB bass, two by the dam and then others in the weeds and pads flipping into the holes and edges. All in the small to maybe 1.5 lbs size. Nothing to get too excited about. Fun working the weeds when the wind not too high, but pushes you and and ruins the spot when blowing hard.
will get the digital camera ready now that making some posts
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.
