Back on the weekend of August 13th, me and a friend of my mine decided we wanted to bring my boat to Cape Cod and do some fishing. We dropped into Middle Pond in Marstons Mills and from Middle you can access Mystic Lake.
We got on the water around 6:20am and headed straight for the cut thru into Mystic Lake. We both tried some topwater action for to start the day and got nothing. He switched top a tiny Rap crankbait(pictured) and was banging off yellow perch left and right. I ended up with my biggest smallie of the season, a decent pickeral and a few perch. A townie told us that they had used that chemical to kill off an algae bloom last year and he was surprised to see us fishing there, oopsy.
Went back to my new found pond of choice on Monday around 11:00am cause I was bored out of my mind. My third cast landed this guy, from the fight I would've guessed equal to the 4lber I caught last week. Weighed in at 2lb10oz, still not too shabby. I plan on dropping my boat in here relatively soon.
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.
