Went to Plymouth today, to a place with water, trees, and fish to boot! Was actually a pretty crappy day weather wise. Dave and I decided to stick it out and fished for quite some time, from about 1230 until 530. Just as luck would have it while we were on the far end of where we were fishing my trolling motor died.... so we had to row a good mile and a half back to the launch. On our way back we stopped at a few promising looking areas and starting pitching chatterbaits and swim jigs. I hooked up on two nice fish. A decent 3.8lber and my personal best a fat egger. She weighed in at 3.23kg on my scale which is about 7.1lbs. As you can tell from the photos she looks like she ate a few softballs lol. Great end to a crappy day overall. Sadly I only have photos, as my GoPro died about halfway through the day. I wish I got this fish on video, but oh well.. hopefully I can track her down and catch her again one day.
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.
