Had to work early Sunday morning, but got out at 7:45am! So I decided to try my luck with the Morning Trout Bites down at Little Pond. The boat wasn't loaded but I had all my tackle in the truck so I figured do a little shore casting. It was brisk, but no wind yet so I figured I'd cast a few until 10am.
Rolling upto the pond it was peppered with shore fisherman, and a few boats and kyaks. I was actually amazed at how many people were trying for these trout.
I ended up finding a spot away from the boat launch, Loaded up some PowerBait on a little treble hook trout rig and cast about 25 yards off shore where i saw a few jumps.
5 minutes later, BAM! the line took off. It was a wrestle getting him in. 14.5 inches and 1.35pounds. Lunch! I ended up getting 5 bites total- one of which snapped my line (4pound mono leader).
Fished 8am-10:20am came home with 2 Rainbows. What a great start to the day!
I can see why it's harder to get bites at Dusk with all that Morning Fishing Pressure. My advice is to get there early for a good spot and start your day right!
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.
