Myself and several military friends went fishing on Toledo Bend during various times of the season in 2006-2008. We caught various types of Bass. 3 4-6LB Stripped Bass caught on the southern end of Toledo Bend (by the Dam) with top water bait using the "walk the dog" technique in the early mornings. 6 5-6LB Largemouth bass caught with various tackle, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and plastic frogs. Great fishing on most of the inlets, but best hotspots are around the Texas or Louisiana Islands.
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.
