So much for the threat of rain. With the cancellation of the kayak tourney I decided to go fishing close to home figuring that the skys would eventually open up on me. I hit the water just after 6 and worked my way along the south shore moving west toward the golf course. It was one of those days where I lost as many as I boated. The pickerel bite was on early but the bass were tough to find. I worked the edges of the lillys with various spinner baits and crank baits. I worked the pads with frogs. Had a couple hits on the frog but I think they were all picks and wasn't able to get a good hookset on any of them. I tried a jitterbug and hooked into a nice pick that pulled the tail hook out of the lure. I eventually boated several nice picks including a very nice 21 inch and a 26 inch beast. Tired of picks I switched to a baby bass square bill crankbait that I picked up at Dicks this week. Eventually picked up a nice 2.5 lb bass on that along with a yellow perch and a sunny. Kept working the lillys along the west side working my way north switching between frog, crankbait and spinnerbait. Hit another decent bass and several more picks on the spinnerbait. Finally called it a day around 1:00; the rain never arrived.
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.
