I was thinking about heading to Attitash with a buddy on Thursday. He hasn't fished in a while and I wanted to go somewhere we could catch a bunch of fish. My honey hole has been getting a chemical treatment every 2 weeks for the last month and a half and the bite is off. So I went to check out Attitash on a whim. I got there at noon. 80 degrees and only a few clouds. I start throwing a crankbait around the 6-8 ft zone looking for grass. Nothing. The only stuff I found was brown and dead. I went into the mouth of the river (I assume it's a river) and there was some greenery. Pretty shallow back there so I start chucking around a huge double bladed buzzbait. WHAMMY! 3 1/2 pounder. Thought I took a pic but my camera died. Good thing I carry two most of the time. Since I recently started to develop the skill of skipping a jig I decided to pound the docks instead of trying to find a hump since the grass was dead. First fish I catch under a dock is my biggest of the day. Around 4 pounds. Got 3 more fish and a bunch of backlashes. Still a skipping noobie but it's fun.
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.
