I didn't catch this so I will not claim credit, but thought it was worth sharing. This guy pulled this up off the riverwalk in Waltham just over the railing from the Margarita's Patio. Weighing in at 36 Lbs, he caught it on a pink doughball in the middle of a sunny day in early May.
Last summer I had a carp that size or bigger snap my 15 pound test in Waltham. I was further up river by the green church. This part of the charles is the best part for carp. They get f***inch huge out there.
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.
