hi everyone, works been crazy lately leaving little time for fishing. I did get to spend a week fishing in maine which was great but most of the fish (no bass in this lake) were holing deep and tough to get at. most of the luck was on the fly rod catching brookies, perch and chub. anyways, seeing as the temp has been a little lower i figured I'd get out to jacobs after work. Started topwater and missed a few hits before the bit slowed. changed it up to cranks and spinnerbaits with no hits at all. something followed the spinnerbait all the way back (probably a pickerel) but that was it. Finally, not wanting to get skunked I tossed on the senko. Fist cast and 'Tic'. Just shy of 3lbs, she fought like a bigger fish though. No a pig but I was pumped, I picked up a tourney special with a pro qualifier and this was the fist fish on 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.
