My uncle told me about this pond in Palmer near the Pike that until recently had had a private property/can't fish here sign. Well the signs been taken down and I decided to head out there tonight.
I had been there 2 times previous, like 2 hours total and both of those hours I was fishing in the complete wrong end of the pond, it had down trees so I assumed bass would be there. The other half is down logs and lily pads so I went there today.
I arrived around 5:30 and started throwing Gary Senko's, green pumpkin with black fleks. I got my first and only bite at around 5:55pm and this is the fish. My biggest of the season/my fishing career(aka only this season). A nice 4lb1oz large mouth. Safe to say I will go back to this pond.
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.
