Went to Danielson Pond yesterday evening for some quick shore fishing. Was on the concrete slab on the side (not the main fishing area), casting out deep and then over the pads on retrieve. Within five minutes, I got a big bite on a weightless senko (Chartreuse and Black), and had a nice little fight. The pads got tricky. Thank God I had 40lb braid on my line.
Pulled out a beast. Didn't have my scale, but it was pretty hefty. In the photo, note that my arm is fully extended, and I have my iphone pulled as far away as I can. It sucks when there is no one else to take the pic for you.
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.
