Well, still bummed I had to miss the tourney at Lake Boon today. But I made the best of my day, grabbed a six pack and some sea-worms and did some surfcasting at Winthrop Beach. I got there 2 hours after hightide which isnt optimum time but still relaxing. Fish 3pm till about 5pm with calm seas, and beautiful weather all day. Only got one hit, and I wasnt missing it. It felt like I was reeling in a boulder, turned out to be a Skate all balled up into itself. First time Ive ever hooked into one, and would be fine without catching anymore in the future, lol.
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.
