8 boats showed up at Buel Lake in western MA for a 6am start. Weather was 60 degrees light wind blowing to the north, water temp was 70. degrees. We had our 5 fish limit and cull out 2 by 8:30am from the north end of the lake and then no bass until about 1:00. We caught lots of rock bass and pickerel in between. We were able to cull out 2 more bass out of a little creek and lost a monster came off at the boat. All in all a good day our final weight was 7.11 pounds good for 3 rd place.
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.
