Got out with Jbiguns today for a 13 hour marathon recon mission. 4 ponds in all none of which either of us had ever fished. Fished Jigs, frogs and creature baits. Day started slow with absolutly NO wind at all, but we eventually got into them on frogs in pads. Missed more then we landed because the pads were SO thick but we connected with a bunch up to 3lbs. Moved to Pond #2. More pads, more fish on frogs and some on Jigs including the 5.8 on a frog in some pads near a downed tree. Pond #3 was a weed infested swill hole, but we hit it anyway. Joe's 1st flip to a weed edge with the creature bait and he sets the hook on a massive 7.2 lbs. I sa the fish come up and turn sideways and I told Joe...... BIG FISH!!! A few more fish here before we moved on to Pond #4 We frogged and jigged and threw creature baits. We get to one corner and Joe was working a weedline for what seemed like 5 minutes. I make a pitch in when he was moving on and I was rewarded with A solid 6.1lb beast of my own. 3 fish 18 3/4 lbs. Top 5 was 25lbs. Must have caught 30 between us Thanks Joe. Lots of laughs and 3 great fish!!
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.
