Sooo.... Big bass and big picks are fun, but I need a Pike.... It would be my first.
So I fished a very special place tonight. I caught 2 or 3 bass outright (cranks) and one pick.
I wanted a couple small perch to liveline.... The perch I was getting were nearly 4", and that really takes about a 3 pound or more fish to take whole... I fished them for a little while w/o luck. Decided it's time I hunt pike (haven't gotten a new FW species this year).
I ACTUALLY stopped for worms and they were sold out... My angling techniques were tested: time to work the techniques and tool box. I focused on a jigs (small spinner for a couple). I jigged up 8 or so perch.
Talk about problems. I jigged 3 bass and another pick. One of the bass was pushing 3... Good fish.
I've got my live perch. The pike hunk starts ASAP. If I don't get out, I'll fry the perch as they're delicious and I only kept males (my conscious is clear).
I was going to fish with Biggz tonight, but threat of Thunderstorms threw him off. It was too late for JR, so I was Hans Solo... Good night. Fun to jig small stuff and catch Perch.
OHHHHH... Johnny Law was waiting putting a note on my my windsheild about no tresspassing. Nice guy... I let hime know who I spoke with at the town, and it's legit... Houses go for a mill over there, so people are pretty uptight (too uptight to catch good fish, which will keep me coming).
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.
