I took my ten year old son on his first out of state fishing trip.He caught the first large mouth of the trip and his first smallie ever. While my buddy's are happy beating the bank i found some better fish just a little deeper. The quantity bait was a black senko. The quality fish came from a tube. My son already asked when he can go fishing again! We had a great trip.
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.
