Been holed up in the house for weeks recouping, straight losing my mind!! Got to fish in the Nashua tourney but fished horrible and just couldn't get in the groove. Well, after my helper called in today I decided to call it a day around 11:00 and ventured home. Sat around till I finally built up the moxie to take the boat out, despite the doc's recommendations, at around 1:00. I figured I had 2-3 hours to kill before I had to get my kid so why not throw in over at Quabog for a few. I fish there 2 times a week on average, when scheduling allows, so I wasted no time and went straight to all my favorite spots. Water temps in the main lake were running 78+ with stained water and HEAVY weed cover. Caught a total of 15 fish in about 2 hours or so, smallest being 1.75lb and the biggest 5.6lbs (see photo) Next in line for weight was a 3.2lb. (see photo) Sorry for the pic quality camera on my phone is garbage! All the fish came on either a soft swimbait (bass magic perch pattern), a ribbit frog (I believe their baby bass color), or 1/2oz black+blue brush jig with a pumpkin creature trailer. All were tight to cover or located on main lake humps. (yes there are a few....) All I can say is fishing really is the best medicine, haven't felt this good in weeks!! Can't wait to get out again!
I second that, its tough enough getting through a week with out fishing never mind 3!! Every second on the water provides me with my daily dose of Serenity which is something thats tuff to find especially in my line of work, Glad to have you back bud! FISH HARD
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.
