Fishing Upper Flannagan pond this past Sunday with my fiancee and brother. Got out there around 2:00pm, some overcast, and then eventually light drizzles, and very calm water (my preferred conditions).
Everyone was fishing 6" senkos, varying in color from green w/watermelon flake, black/pink mix, and light yellow. Everyone had bites at first, but nothing hooked.
About an hour in, I cast into a shallow area near a large rock about 20 yards from the shore. My fiancees rod was all messed up so I put my rod down for a few minutes to fix her setup. Grab my rod and noticed a big bite. Hooked a nice 3 pounder that was pretty lively. Water temp was actually pretty nice, since the pond is somewhat shallow and we had a warm week.
Stayed for another 2 hours and got diddly-squat. Saw tons of movement in the shallows and some jumps throughout the day, but they weren't biting.
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.
