0500: Launched at Lake Wampanoag. Headed strait across the lake to East shore just South of the Damn. There is a shallow flat between the island that is about 4 ft deep that drops off to the South side into about 10 ft of water. Caught Bass #1 there - nice 2 pounder. Then headed up the East coast of the lake and into the narrow channel that travels along the South side of the large Island. The channel is very shallow and is becoming covered with lily pads. Caught 6 bass, 4 pickerel, 2 crappie and a turtle today. Beautiful day, easy paddling, wind was not a factor at all.
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.
