What do our ratings mean?

POOR day basically means the fish will either steal all your bait or will not even touch your line.
FAIR day means that you may catch one or two fish but you will have to work hard to do so.
GOOD day means that you will catch enough fish to feel gratified.
BEST day means that you will catch something almost every time you cast your line in the water.
