Me and my buddy took my jon boat out to Lake Winthrop in Holliston for a day of fishing. The weather conditions were perfect, totally overcast, a slight breeze, and a comfortable temperature in the high 70's. After swinging by the baitshop for a couple dozen shinners, and the package store for a few beers, we got to the lake and unloaded the boat. We made way for the two islands on the south side of the lake and set up shop right off one of the points. We hauled in three or four pickerel within about an hour and managed to lose a bass on a spinner. Deciding to relocate we moved to a point along a weed bed and fishing some worms through a hole in the weeds. Again we were nailing pickerel but came up short on the bass game. Some guys in a bass boat were playing with firecrackers which was kind of annoying. I attribute our lack of bass to that haha.
Overall a very good day of fishing with a pile of picks caught and few perch.
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.
