Took the crawdad out with the old man to Whitman's for a little late-in-the-day sunset trip. We started out going topwater at a big group of lily pads: no fish but one strike. We moved all around the part of the pond closer to the ramp with a lot of different baits, but no luck. We eventually moved to a little area with some shade from the sun and I threw on a Rapala Shadow Rap: a jerkbait that I've had some good success on. At this point, fish were jumping every couple minutes, so I expected something to happen. I got on the board with maybe the smallest larry of my entire life, then a decent crappie. We moved around a little off the shore, and I caught another crappie. We stayed there until it got dark and buggy, and then we headed back.
I would definitely recommend buying a Rapala Shadow Rap, by the way, it's an awesome lure.

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.
