It only took me 3 years to do it but I finally broke the 10 pound bag barrier with the win going to yours truly, tomp. Bam1970 caught over a dozen keepers and got second. At the site, it looked like 3rd place was a tie between purpleturkey and rivethead with purpleturkey winning the big fish tie breaker to be awarded 3rd place. Upon examining the tally later, it appears that purpleturkey shortchanged himself in his tally and really had an additional ounce which gave him third outright anyway. Whew!
Great job by drshakenbake with Lunker!
It was pretty good action and good quality out there today. Props to the Western Mass guys for making the trek and giving a good account of themselves. Also good to see a few new faces.
Congratulations on the Win Tom and on the 10+ pound bag,Very Nice, and thank you for hosting another great tourney!!! Nice job Bruce (Bam)you got your revenge on Stumpy! Good Job Jeremy NICE FISH! I Looked at my notebook Tom the 6 lbs 14 oz is right, alI I can think is my sloppy printing is to blame, maybe my fish that was 2 lbs even I wrotedown as 2.lbs so it looked like 2.1,either way doesn't matter. I had a tuff day very few bites and I couldn't get anything out of the pads(guess I shoulda threw the frog more then half a dozen times)Caught my 4 all in the pockets and edges of the hydrilla,2 on Stiko Worms, 1 Dropshotting and 1 on a Spinner Bait.
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.
