Its finally getting tough to catch Bass in my favorite ponds so I've switched gears to hit pickerel in the small ponds that are normally overgrown with weeds and lilies. Went out Wednesday and Monday for a few hours before sunset and was rewarded with some nasty slimy big guys. Over both days we put over 20 on the boat. Most 20inches or larger.(Monday yielded 5 that were 23-25). It was great fishing. Catch and release. Used Rubber worms (pumpkin) and set them Wacky Style. Most hits were letting them fall to the bottom and jerking the bait across the bottom slowly.
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.
