2nd time at Mystic, first time being successful. Found a spot where smallies were biting. Very fun day. One picture worthy. Caught a few LMB as well but they were all little guys. Trip cut somewhat short when the guy I was with stepped on a wasp nest and got stung 4 or 5 times. Crazy at the time but he's fine so it's pretty funny looking back on it.
I've fished it a lot, but never got a SM there. Heard stories of them but that is the first pic I have seen, good job. There's stories of pike too, but have never seen any. There are big carp and stripers, I have touched them!
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.
