We're going camping this weekend in New Hampshire, so I dropped my fiance off at work this morning so we could leave right from there this afternoon. Decided to fish a pond that is pretty close to her job afterwards for a few hours. Didn't get onto the water until about 8:30. Fished around a cove and when I got to the back end of it, I cast my spinnerbait into about 6" of water. It landed and I just saw a big swirl right next to where my lure went in. Felt the tug, set the hook and brought the bad boy in. Tipped the scales at 5 pounds even, my biggest fish and first 5 pounder!
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.
