Sorry I haven't been on in a bit. Haven't been fishing much, but have been catching here and there. The freshwater bite has slowed down a bit so I switched over to saltwater gears...
Caught a few blues last night, phone died so I couldn't take pics of all of them. Fished from 10PM until around 4AM this morning. Lost an enormous bluefish (I think! Maybe it was a shark!) that ripped my steel leader to bits!
Was using very, very fresh mackerel that was acquired for me by a friend. The other guys using baitshop bought frozen macks didn't get bit by anything but rock crabs!
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.
