Needed a day of fishing after a s***ty week and wanted somewhere a little more quite than my usual waters. Decided to get away from the 95 belt and headed out to long pond in littleton. Heard it had a good ramp and allowed gas motors. Fished from around 830-430. Got 6 bass, the best being longer than my plano 3700. Of course my scale decided then was a great time to not work.
Started the day throwing a square bill using my new cranking stick on the south side, no action. Had to go back to the ramp to fix my trolling motor after about an hour and then headed to the west edge. Started throwing a loud lipless crank at the edge and was rewarded with my first bass a few minutes later. Worked that edge for a while alternating the lipless and slow rolling a spinner bait . Only other action I got was monster snapping turtle swimming by my boat.
Some families were fishing for sunfish on the north west corner, looks like there is a picnic table there or something. Was getting frustrated, and not having any jigs with me (its hard to fish with the tackle box you left on your bench) I started throwing a senko at anything that looked like it could be cover. Hooked into my first good fish of the year in view of the families. Caught another in the same spot. Cloud band moved in and the bite died.
Had a slow few hours trying various spots not catching anthing, as I was leaving I saw the cove on the south side and hit that. Didn't really expect to catch anything so was just ripping my lipless through the emerging pads. Second cast I think snag a pad and am getting ready to motor over to it when the fish explodes out and gives me a show. Stayed for another hour after that and grabbed one more
Two guys in a canoe were killing it while I was there, they claimed to have caught 15 fish in the first hour, I was skepitical until I saw them catch a fish every cast right in front of me for a solid 20 minutes. I was struggling to find hooks and lures that were approriat as most of the stuff I prepped was sitting at home and unusable.
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.
