The day started off bad. Roger called me from my driveway and informed me one of the plugs on the boat was cracked in half. Great, I have no extras. Its 1/4 past 6 am and I'm pretty sure nothing is open. West Marine opens at 7 am, so we have no choice but to wait it out. We load up and head out for the store to open. 7 am, we get the plug and we are off. The rain is picking up and i'm thinking I should of just stayed in bed.
The last time I fished upper Mystics was about 3 weeks ago and did well. Between myself and a friend we had about a 17 - 18 lb bag. Its not likely to repeat back to back trips with a 18 lb five.
Fast forward to end of the day....I had a 4.51, 4.05, 3.37. Roger threw in a 1.75 and later in the day nailed a nice 4.51 of his own. Total = 18.39. Not bad at all for a day fishing. We had about 30 fish total.
To sweeten the deal, there is a boat house owned by Tufts University. They have a a 50 foot dock. It was lined with honeys in Bikinis catching some sun after the rain was done. There must have been 20 of them. Not just quantity, but definitely some quality as well fellas.
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.
