First day out for 2015. Tested out all the gear I bought over this long winter. Caught one Largemouth Bass on a Bass Pro Shops Bluegill lure in about 5 feet of water. Bite was very lite, line started going sideways. This is the first time I have ever been here, but it seems like the water levels are low. Maps say the water here is 5 feet along the shore and 10 feet deep towards the center of the lake. I crossed the Northern section of the lake and never found water deeper than 6 feet. That seems low right after a huge snow melt like we just experienced. Good to be back on the water.
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.
