This is a sad story while trolling on lake McDonough we saw a commotion on the surface of the water and we turned around to find a small mouth bass on it side flopping a round. I scooped it up with my net to find on of the largest small mouth I have ever seen, it had a crappie the size of my hand stuck in its mouth trying to swallow it. We carefully removed the fish and tried to revive the 5 1/2 pound smallie with no luck it died in my live well. We took some pictures and gave the fish to some one that would eat it. I add the photos to this post.
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.
