This morning my 4 year old son and I picked up some Dunkies and headed down to the local pond (Mill Pond) for an hour.
I baited up his spiderman fishing pole, and put a 3" chigger craw on mine.
About a half hour later he found an orange pro senko in my tackle bag, and wanted to fish it. Not expecting him to catch anything, I just threaded it on the #4 bait hook already on his line, and left the #4 split shot on above it.
Low and behold I cast it out for him, and a fish hits it. I figured it must be a bluegill, but it's putting up quite a fight on the Spiderman fishing pole.
It was a nice Largemouth.
He was absolutely thrilled, and I was so happy too.
After we take a picture and release the fish, I re-rig his pole and try to duplicate this, but was unable to do so.
All in all, a great way to start the day with my son.
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.
