Bought a new rod and reel this winter and with the weather at 50 I couldn't resist! This is the most I spent on a rod and reel thus far, Abu Garcia rod and reel ( REEL-REVO S SPIN and ROD-ABU VERITAS SP ). So Jackie and I went to the Blackstone River just to take a few casts and see how it felt. It works! Nice fish and I was wearing a tee shirt in February! Added a photo of the next day as well, crazy weather.
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.
