I live right down the street from mother brook so I fish there a lot.I have caught LM bass,crappies,perch,pickerel,bullheads,carp.My friends have caught small channel catfish and an eel, but those are the only two fish I haven't caught in there yet.
I tried for carp at the River st bridge area last night and got nothing. There were guys in a rowboat fishing, and one at the bridge casting and catching small fish - looked like bullhead and maybe perch. The list says eel, but I don't know if there are any eels in this water. Dams on the Neponset and the Charles would block them from getting in.
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 location 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 location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, 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.
