On our little camping trip to Tamworth, New Hampshire, I found a spot on the bearcamp river for my brother and I to try fishing one morning, hopefully for some trout. The spot on the river looked good when we got there around six, but the trip ended up only producing a small yellow perch and a fallfish. And that was that.
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.
