After going out the day before and getting skunked at my local lake,was itching to get back out there and redeem myself. Aem got 2 and me nothing embarrassing to say the least ha ha.So went out last night around 6.Don't know if it was the different spot I went to or just a day later but baitfish and fish in general a lot more active.Caught a couple of nice larrys right away got that skunk off my back! Bite slowed so moved to my honey hole.Lost a small one first cast then bite slowed again.Saw a nice jump to the right of me right off the end of a tree branch.Precision cast right to the spot and bam she took it!Nice 4lber sweet!Couple more small ones then decided to try new color yum dinger I bought.Cajun neon.Daylight was fading fast and was just about to change to crank bait for better vibration in dark.Whip cast out as far as I can(at spot I was fishing know 2 small submerged islands out deep and the fish hang near them) Bam! Fish on 3ft jump through the air and I knew what it was and what kinda fight I was in for!Epic battle with at least 3 more jumps with tail dancing across the water this fish did not want to give up!Got her in she would run back out.Back n forth we went.Thought for sure she would throw the hook because I crushed the barb so less damage for fish.Finally I get her in.Guess her to be around 3.5 my pb mass smallie.I know not huge but man can those fish fight and that is the largest I've seen taken out of this body of water.I do think there are larger ones in here but it is shore fishing only and hard to find them.
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.
