Hit Cook pond again with my brother for a quick fishing trip, and to test my trolling motor, battery longevity ect. Caught 12 fish, 2 little yellows, 9 white perch (a couple which were a nice size and put up a decent fight) and a sunfish. We used old school red and white Dare Devile lures, and funny enough, any time one of us switched to something else, the bit stopped.
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.
