Headed out around 2pm with my girlfriend for a nice relaxing day on the pond. No Bites all day- tried rubber worm, live worm, and spinner Bait. Not even a Nibble! It was definitely too hot, and too early for the fish. She was was getting hot and hungry, and we had a small lobster bake we were supposed to attend at 5:30 So I was getting nagged to get off the pond. I wasn't about to get skunked!
We're finally motoring in and I saw a fallen log beckoning me to cast. I slowed the motor to a 1 and said "just one last cast on the way in". I FINALLY got a nibble, then, to her discontent, I launched the rubber worm back against the log where I felt that tug. BAM! The rod bent right over! After a nice fight and a breach I Hauled my biggest fish to date into the boat. 19inches long, but I didn't have my scale. I KNEW the fish were going to start biting (5:45pm) but I figured I really should end on a high note and go enjoy some lobster. At least now I had a nice story to tell while enjoying a cold one by the fire.
Used rubber worm wacky style By the Boat house and the fallen log
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.
