I went to a pond off of Clinton Road in Hopkinton, MA at around 2:30pm. I have fished this spot before and saw this fish there before, but never caught it. My guess is that this bass was watching over a spawning area. I cast texas style rigged soft plastics. The bass would react and follow the worms but never strike. Finally I cast a Slug-go right in front of it's face and it ate it.
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.
