Ill keep this short. Went to NH to see the family this past weekend. Only got 2 hours to fish from shore on Sunday morning (9am-11am). Great water clarity, but the water level was down. I could see some Smallies but they were real skittish. Nothing on the shakeyhead, tube, bitsy jig, senko, or jerkbait. Only takers were 3 Sunfish, and 1 Rock Bass on the inline spinner.
I caught that bass in my profile photo in NH. I got one of those temporary permits but misplaced it in the house that I rented... So they gave me a 93 or 97 dollar ticket. Some weird number. There are some real monsters to be caught up there!
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.
