I went over to Houghton's today, expecting to get some stocked rainbows from my slip-rig w/ Powerbait, but ended up getting no bites at all. So then at that point, I decided to use my baitcaster and go for some bass (which I'm more accustomed to catching). I was using a Green Pumpkin 4" Senko (T-Rigged, weightless); fishing around the lillies, when all of a sudden a nice lunker slams it! Maybe 15". A half hour later, I caught another! (Little smaller). All in all, great day! Although I was expecting some trout, I managed to snag some fat LMB.
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.
