went fishing this morning at gooseberry neck/island, had a great time!! baits used were green crabs, and sea worms. fish caught are as follows: 22inch striper on a green crab(I was shocked), 16 inch tautog, 13 inch tautog, 12 inch tautog, and 8 inch tautog all caught on green crabs. and last but not least a 13 inch black sea bass caught on green crabs. I didn't catch anything on the sea worms, the surf was really rough today. started my day all the way near the two towers that are standing on the island, then worked my way down the shoreline, in the direction of the parking lot.
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.
