Went out on a drift boat out of Lantana, Fl. for my birthday. The boat was half full, so your not shoulder to shoulder. the boat mate trolled on the way out but with a swing and a miss on a nice fish! started the first drift with not much happeneing and then you see a guy up front hooked up to a nice fish, we start the next dirft and people are hooking up from the bow to the stern. I hooked 2 fish, Landing only 1 nice little Kingfish. Not a bad way to spend a few hours in the morning.
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.
