I have been resisting the baitcaster for years but today I bought a new one(daiwa 100tsh)($50)and went to Heards w/out a spinning reel. I gotta say I was impressed with myself only three bee's nests in an hour of fishing. Overall a good night. Even though I only got one fish. I had confidence with the baitcaster for the first time in my life. Don't get me wrong I've used them before but always resort back to my spinner.I do see the advantage and now feel comfortable enough to use the baitcaster as my main rig. My catch of the night was off a classic senko but with a catch. The third bee's nest took me a while to untangle,when i did i jerked my line and there was larry.
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.
