I have begun my quest for the 40lb Carp, with Rod and Reel, speaking or Reel, I smoked another reel this am..RRRRRRR This was a matter of time, I was hooked into a 20+lb Carp this morning at 5:20am on the nose, great fight for about 7 mins, then the reel didn't work no more, made some funny sounds and then splash splash crunch crunch and away goes my Trophy. The bottom of the spool was in my hand and some guts also hahahaha I can Laugh, I knew it, glad wasn't Saturday at the Quabin, that may of had something to do with it.
I did manage a small Carp about 14 lbs and 30 inches before my reel went kerplunk. Glad they started to move in, been some long dark uneventfull mornings for the last month waiting on these babies. Woooooooo
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.
