Chilly, breezy, over-cast day. Put in at the boat ramp at 8AM. Went north from the boat ramp. caught one small largemouth on the west side. Then continued north to a small inlet that is crossed by Hopeville Rd (Rt 201). nothing there. Had to cut the trip short because I had to return home to light the furnace. Headed back to the ramp and caught 1 small pickerel near a nesting platform on the east side north of the boat ramp. 1 small LMB and one small pikerel. left around 11:00AM to light the furnace.
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.
