My 2nd week fishing for Largemouth Bass, 2nd week in my yak. I didn't see a lot of fish and didn't have a lot of action. I'm going to attribute that to my inexperience fishing for this species as the water and structure in this lake is amazing. According to the VDGIF, there's over 30 acres of submerged timber here. There's also numerous weed beds. Fishing both of these structures for 4 hours, I didn't get a single strike. I'm going to attribute this to me not knowing what I'm doing...
The wind also played havoc with my yak as I didn't have my anchor this day. If I could have anchored down a bit, maybe I would have been able to cast to all the places I really need to.
I'll try this lake again at some point, but think I'll cut my teeth on some more prolific waters first before I make my way back.
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.
