Ok so the day started off with my boss (from work) leaving that day. He retired. Here is when a "new boss" took his place. I fished after getting home from Boston,MA for work (they made me go there to help with work and the drive was insane, I drove through boston from South to North).
I ended up going to a spot I usually did, but not too many huge bass. I was pleasantly surprised to not only get a huge fat belly Hog largemouth, but it was on a lure that I never ever use. It was a huge around 7 inch wiggly tail worm that starts off fat (where the hook gets placed) and skinny towards the bottom.
This fish absolutely inhaled the goddamn worm (brown with black flakes throughout) and took me for a ride. She bent the EWG hook and made it a "messed up hook" Gamagatsu 4/0 EWG. I may also post the hook pics too where the hook is supposed to be flush with the worm and its totally NOT.
She weighed in at EXACTLY 4.000000 pounds on my digi scale. What a nice day!
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.
