went out past niantic bay with one of my buddys in a two man kayak and once we got into some deeper water of fifteen feet plus i put on a porgy rig with frozen squid on it and attatched a quarter ounce weight on the swivel. i dropped down to the bottom and immediately there was action. i started off by catching seven black sea bass in a row, all about three to four inches. then we went out a little deeper and i finally hooked into porgy! i got a thirteen incher up to the boat and would have kept him but he got off the hook right at the boat. then i got some more little ones, but i hooked another porgy which was about nine inches, not big enough to keep. then i caught my third and final porgy, then and a half inches, kept him and he tasted great. while i was fileting the porgy i handed the rod to my buddy who dropped down the bait and pulled out a big ass sea robin, about fifteen inches and over two pounds. threw it back because we didnt know what it was at first. later we caught another one, but its was smaller and we decided not to keep it. one hell of a trip with one of my good buddies. porgy tasted good too.
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.
