Hit the river today for a bit on a miserable day featuring falling temperatures, some rain, and wind. I'm not a big jig guy unless it's pitching to or into cover but was determined to catch some fish on them. Lipless cranks and jerkbaits just didn't work out and I was actually mostly hoping for a giant pike. I got 2 nice fish on jigs instead. Both were on steeper river bank dropoffs. The first was about 3.5 pounds and the second hit the scale at 4 lbs. 1 oz.
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.
