Hey BigOutdoors,I have a question for you since it seems to me you're well versed in trout fishing and trout streams,will trout regularly be found in the same stretch of river or the same holes say where you hook a bluegill or a sunfish?I ask because I had that scenario a couple of weeks ago and when I landed an unexpected bluegill I was unsure as to whether there were trout there or not.Thanks in advance.
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.
