I finally got back out Sunday at 1:30. This is one of my 1st trips solo. It was quiet light,variable wind slightly overcast. I started throwing a jerkbait and found one shallow along with 5 pickerel along the way. Trout where literally jumping completely out of the water. I switched to a Zara spook when it started raining but no takers. This lake doesn't have much good visible structure but when i did come across a decent piece i flipped my jig with decent success. Later i tried deeper water cranking and a spinnerbait but the bite died or i couldn't find em. But 5 keepers in 2hrs plus watching a eagle catch his dinner too i guess i shouldn't complain.
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.
