I decided to take my canoe out for a few hours of bass fishing. The bite has been very slow for me so far this year and I wasn't expecting much in terms of action. The sun was shining and there was a moderate northerly wind. Cruising through the shallows I could see that the sunfish were starting to build nests and it seemed like some of the bass were also starting to bed down. I figured I'd focus on the shallow water with emergent weeds and it paid off.
I tied on a 5'' stick worm in pumpkinseed and it would be the only lure I needed all day. I managed to land 6 bass, all of them were pretty small 1lbers. All of the fish were located just off the shore in about 3 feet of water. Despite the lack in size it was a nice confidence booster and proof positive that some of the fish made it through the winter.
I went bait fishin at sud res today n few casts for bass. It was nice to see sunnies n perch real active. Long time comin. Last wk same spot not a bite. This wk nice bucket full of bait. Chu here I come!
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.
