The wife and I hit Whitman's Pond around 4:30. We weren't getting any bites until a friendly angler gave us their left over worms. I immediately landed two sunnies. My wife, being a vegetarian, doesn't fish. But while I was working a senko, the bobber dipped on the other line. I told her I couldn't put my rod down (big lie) and that she needed to reel in the other one. Of course, it was very exciting for her. Now I just need to get her to hook into a bass... She caught a Golden Shiner, about 8" long. I finished the day with my first bass on a baby bass Senko. Got my first fish of the season, first bass of the season, and I got my wife to catch a fish! A good day.
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.
