This past month I've been working on a site for the City of Gloucester Tourism Department, so I decided to add a few pictures from my trip up there the other day. Unfortunately I had to work late and did not have time to go fishing, but the town is definately a hotspot for shoreline fishing. I will be heading back there shortly on one of my weekends off to do some surf casting and possibly schedule a charter fishing trip. There are so many things to do in the town, that you can easily make a long weekend out of the trip. The tourism website should be up in the next week, so I'll be sure to send everyone the URL.
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.
