Start time was 5:30am 67 degrees and partly cloudy. Water temp was 74 degrees. When to a spot I found pre-fishing the day before a small hump in the middle lake 8 feet of water Steve (startos282) caught the first fish on a buzz bait about 2.5 pounds, he caught the second fish just 12 inches, 3rd fish I caught on a spinner bait about 3 pounds, 4th fish was on the same spinner bait a keeper but small and the 5th fish was at a different hump further down the lake on a drop shot about 4 pounds. That was all before 10am. We did not catch another keeper bass the rest of the day. Our total was 11.72 pounds enough to take 1st 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.
