snuck out of college to kill a few hours between classes to do some fishing in a pond down the road. i started out throwing a jig and a jerkbait with no luck their i switched it up to a drop shot and 10 minutes later i felt the "tap tap" and set the hook a little to soon and pulled the hook out of its mouth a little mad out myself for not waiting that extra second. i put it right back in the same area i had that first bite. i jerked the rod tip twice and let the worm sink back down slowly then lifted it back up and felt the dead weight i set the hook and the first thing i thought was i just pulled it through weed and then i felt a slight tug back and bam had a fish on. at first the fish didn't fight much till i got him closer then he tried to jump but barley breached the surface i finally got him in and wasn't the biggest fish only weighed about a pound an a half but still good for me!! the fish was real real cold took a quick picture and sent him on his way back the the depths. after putting a new worm on i made another cast in that same area and sure enough on the third pause i lifted up and another lifeless dead weight i set the hook and then after a few turns of the handle the fish came a live. it fought harder that the last one i was thinking this was bigger than the first but so i took my time bring him in turned out it was smaller this one weighting about a pound. i was fishing in about 20 ft of water were there is a little ledge i think there was a small school holding on it waiting for what ever crossed their path and just sucking it down. it was a good little get away from school!!
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.
