In honor of my mother who taught me how to fish I decided to hit on of my favorite spots. Arrived at Houghton's Pond at 5pm, there were plenty of people swimming in the water so I figured the bites would be slow and I was right. I was fishing for trout using powerbait but not much action. I decided to float a nightcrawler off the bottom and within 10 minutes I landed the biggest Yellow Perch I ever caught. Shortly after that I caught a Rainbow Trout and called it a night.
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.
