After a bunch of trips for bass and trout during which I couldn't even catch a break, I finally got on some fish this morning. We hit up houghtons to go for stockie rainbows earlier today, and it was great. Fish were jumping here and there when we got there around seven, but the bite didn't pick up until after 8. I was finally able to catch my first couple trout of the year on some gulp eggs on one of my new rods. It was such a great feeling! And those houghtons stockies are pretty big, too. Great-fighting fish. I can't wait to get out to some other locations and hopefully hook into more trout, maybe even get my first brown! Tight lines everyone!
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.
