So I've been super busy at work and decided it would be best to put in a full day this Saturday. The wife and kids left town for the weekend.
I head into work around 8:30, get some good work done but spend some time thinking about taez555's Sudbury Reservoir trip report. At about 4:30 I take off and on the way home I pass the res so I stop by for a quick trip.
A quick walk down the path off of Farm Rd. and immediately catch a short LM. This area is super super weedy but I'm getting bites so I continue. A couple of casts later I get a real good strike on my pumpkin senko and I set the hook. The fish puts on a real good fight and then I realize its a SM (~2lb). It's actually the first Smallie I've ever caught. I can see why people like fishing for them.
The bite dies down so I head back to the car but now I got the bug. Luckily my Kayak is on the car and everything is packed so I head home and walk the dogs. Then off to A1.
Just a perfect night there. Fished from about 6:30 - 8:30. Caught about 6-7 largemouth. Had a Pickeral come off at the boat (Nice!) A couple shorts, some 1.5 pounders and a couple over 2. Fish were very active, killing the senkos with a Square Bill and Sexy Shad mixed in. I really love this place.
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.
