They are painting the office today, so I decided to "work" from home. Was sitting in my kayak at 0500 for a second visit to Whitney Pond. Fishing was slow today. Took awhile to get a bite and a long time to get a bass bite. First fish was a crappie. Next a good sized pickerel. I explored some shallow back bay areas. Had a nice bass tug my line, give a good aerial show and spit my hook. I was paddling back to the boat ramp, had to give it the proverbial "one more cast" and caught a nice bass, then caught a crappie, another nice bass and a small pickerel.
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.
