I got out early on a sunny August morning and landed my best fish of the year on my second cast! Caught this largemouth on a Super Spook Jr. at 7:20am, 20" long chunk and estimated 5 pounder (I lost my scale on my last trip, unfortunately). The rest of the morning, I caught 3 more largemouth under 2 pounds and a tiny smallmouth. I ended the morning working a double blade spinnerbait just above a submerged weed bed and had some good action with this pattern. Certainly a memorable August morning!
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.
