great early start left house at 4:30 got there around 5:30 setup and missed a couple bites one on a bottom rig another on a bobber setup. Then an hour later i managed to land a beautiful largemouth, which i was hoping to be a laker but none the less a beautiful fish from a bubble and a minnow. she came in just under 4 lbs (3 lbs 15 ozs). We waited a couple hours and when we were about to give up, my dad was reeling in his line and WHAM. a nice laker took the minnow and the battle was on. he fought it for about 10 min on light 10 lb line and we got him in. 5 lbs 3 ozs 26 inches a fine and first ever lake trout from the res for my father. I'm still lakerless, so i will be going again soon. we then picked up and headed out around 11, but when i was walking off the path i kicked something and to my surprise was a 20$ bill. not a bad ending if you ask me, and i guess when it's good fishing over there it must be good luck all around.
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.
