I decided to try a new place today, call a bud i hadnt fish with yet and met him in Littleton. very heavy fog this morning on the lake, the sky was completely overcast, so i decided to tie a chrome perch lipless and caught 4 dinks on it, the only other bait that worked was the flat sided square bill, another 2 dinks on it (all fish were about the same size). as soon as the sun came out and all the clouds went away, the bite died.
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.
