Opening day for designated trout ponds. We were on the water before sun up, mostly full moon still looming over the lake and the fish were rising left and right. I had hoped we would have had a more productive day but it was still a blast and I have now come to put Whittemore Lake on my hot list.
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.
