We got out on the lake by 730 Sunday morning, pleasantly warmer than I thought it would be. Water temps were ranging from 52-60 degrees, a huge range given the small size of the lake. Not surprisingly all the fish we caught were in water that was warmer than 57. We threw everything but the kitchen sink... I was eager to try out alot of new gear from the offseason, but came up empty. I cant say I was all that frustrated, I admit most of what I was throwing was new to me. I tied on a orange pumpkin yama creature and 2 minutes later hooked into this 3.4lb larry.
Orange Pumpkin Yama creature... my go-to soft plastic
Normally you cannot access the area we were in... With the heavy flooding recently, it was nice to cruise right in, land some big fish, and cruise right out without having to fight the weed growth that usually chokes the area.
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.
