"Well its safe to say that the weather isnt the only thing subject to change" Fishing trips and the reaction of our wives to those three little words "Im Going Fishing" also go on this list, hence why the 1/16/13 trip has been postponed to 1/17/13 so wisper those three words in your wifes ear and if you live...Ill see you on the water..
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.
