Dave and I went to Billington today for about 2 hours or so, just cruising around throwing jigs, chatterbaits, and my new 5 inch Huddlestons. Hooked up with a pretty decent fish on the Southeast side of the big island, in about 10 feet of water on a Z-man Chatterbait, I'd say he was around 3 pound? Maybe 3.5, it was a fat fish. Fished from around 1:30pm till around 330-4ish. Caught a decent sized Perch as well, and saw a huge dead sucker fish floating in the water, which I didn't even know were native to Billington. Was finally able to get a good GoPro clip too, after finally getting one this season. Video is below, check it out.
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.
