we got there at 6 pm.after eating dinner at culvers.we used light action spinning rods and caught white perch,common carp,yellow perch,bluegill,sunfish and largemouth bass.the carp was big (considering i've never caught one before),probably 5 or 6 pounds.the perch was good for the table and we released the rest. we caught them all on pieces of live worm or plastic worm 2 feet below 2 split shot sinkers. i like to sit and fish near some old docks they have there at kollen park but there are many places were you can sit on the the grass and fish good resting,but just watch that rod tip!the line will tend to move off to the side or the end of your rod will tap.so you have to be watchful.some other people were catching walleye and i didn't ask what they were using,but it looked like large minnows attached to 3 way swivels and pyramid sinkers.it's best to have two ultralight rods that are ether spinning or spin casting.plastic worms,night crawlers,red worms,minnows,or for the most part any live bait on split shots.we go out there quit often but the best times to go are in early morning like 7 o'clock am. or 6 o'clock pm.
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.
