Team Beaver Fever had their first outing this past Sunday at Nippenicket. Got to the ramp around 7:30 to do a quick shakedown and gear check. Ended up spending about 5 hours on the water total, water temps were running 41.9 to 42.6 on the surface, water clarity was around 1-2 ft with some residual icebergs floating around in the back of coves. Spent the first 2 hours shaking off the boat's and gears cobwebs and marking structure, rock piles and the old shoreline with the HDS, as neither BangBang nor I have ever been there before. Ohh and if anyone is missing a 14' V-Hull we can show you where it is, bring your scuba gear!! Needless to say water was also 2-3' high it seemed, and not alot of activity, we did get one keeper (BARELY) in the boat. Came on a Bomber 4A crank in crawfish pattern off of the edge of an iceberg in approx 4' of water. Has several followers and a handful of missed strikes just couldn't get any others to commit! All in all thou a perfect first day, sun came out for awhile after a brief passing shower, and just being on the water was enough!!! Ill post a few shots as soon as I can!! Problem now is I'm already wanting to go again, see you all on the water!!

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.
