Spent a half day out at Bellamy Reservoir in Barrington NH. Fairly productive day as I caught 11 bass 1 pickerel and an eyeball. Not Intentional mind you and rather surprising when I reeled in my line. For most of the day I was dragging a green/white senko across the lily pads. My line had just barely kissed the water when it started to boil...thump! I set my hook and prepared for battle. Unfortunately it was over as soon as it began, my line when limp. I quickly reeled back in hoping to pitch it back in , but when I retrieved my line I was greeted by a slightly gruesome sight. ( see photo) I have been fishing for 35 years and never encountered this. I would love to hear from you all to see if this ever happened to you.
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.
