I was headed to hicks lake to give it a try as i only had about two and a half hours to fish prior to having to report to dinner with friends and the wife. I did some speed fishing for bass as i was short on time, i ended up landing three with a good one at about three and a half pounds. I was alone here with no other boats to cause problems and only a few bank fishermen. I still see a good fish running along the western shore that i am unable to catch, maybe some day.
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.
