I fished this charity Tournament (For Michael J Fox's charity) for the 1st time. Had a few rides fall though, so I ended up fishing with a buddy in his 10ft Inflatable Dingy, cause his 27ft Boat was not ready. Tight fit, but we had in work. Mostly soaked chunk bait of Pogies, Mackerel, Clams, and Seaworms. Throw topwater and only had a few fish swirl at it, but no takers. Being in the inflatable left us limited to where we could go, limited what we could bring for gear. But all in all, we held our own considering I haven't touched my saltwater gear all year. Ended the outing with 2 Skates(hate Skates, lol, pains in the ass!)about 15-16" on seaworms. Also got my biggest Bluefish so far at 6-1/4lbs, which gave my 2nd place by less than 3lbs in that category. Winner Striper was a 40lber, and rumor was that the charity raised 12k-14k for the day.
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.
