Met Mark for White Cats and Carp. Mark nailed a 2lb Channel Cat... What a catch.
We hit my favorite carp spot, fished for an hour... I had to pick up dinner and wanted to grab my oldest kid. Mark had carp hits but no landings while I was gone... I'm sure Mark will be back there.
Met down river at the trusty white-cat spot... My kid caught a couple bullheads, Mark must have caught a dozen. It was discouraging, cause we were there for the white cats... We also had a couple break offs, which was odd, because I had 15lb mono and Mark was working with braid.
BAM... Mark nailed the beauty Channel in the pictures. It was about 2#.
They were stocked in that part of the Charles more than a decade ago, and that fish wasn't older than 2...
We hit another spot that gave me MANY whites last year... Again, a ton of little bullheads. Mark also nailed a bluegill that was about a pound... Kind of cool.
I hadn't gotten out for cats and carps really since getting a yak... Lot of fun. Mark was able to mark off another species, so it was an awesome night. Good company, and an unexpected but awesome catch. I'm sure Mark will be posting some carp pictures soon too.
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.
