catching trout left and right. right off the ramp about 15 to 20 feet out, using nightcrawlers. had 3 flags in 3 hrs and got a beautiful male about 15 inches. We recently went again and caught 12 trout through the ice on powerbait, all rainbows ranging from 10 to 15 inches again. great action video is on youtube if you want to see some footage.
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.
