Sunday Morning: Special place. Phil and I rocked it hard. 1 big bass. 5 or 6 average bass--spinners, cranks, and the southern-crappie special. 8 or so yellow perch. 3 picks. Couple nice ones. Fished 6:30-11:30. Phil fried up lunch of perch and a few of the barely legal dinks. Boat was still on the car. Stopped back for sunset hour or so. Caught 2 or 3 bass. One big. 2 picks--1 big, one average. 5 crappie. A guy was scouting the place from shore. Seemed allright--good gear and didn't have face tatoos--lol. Invited on boat and made a new fishing partner--good dude. Felt terrible. He only caught a huge sunny on a crank bait, while I was pulling in one after another.
Headed out to one of my work haunts Monday with an office-fishing friend. He rarely fishes anything other than a high-end bass boat, but he was willing to slum it from shore with me. Caught one nice bass. Went to another spot Tuesday. He smashed picks. I caught a couple perch and one nice bass.
Gotten 2 on plastics. Mostly spinners and such.
Southern crappie special: pencil bobber, suspended jighead with a little swim bait... Jig 2-3, sit a sec, repeat... Perch, bass, and crappie all took it. Very cool technique.
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.
