Unplanned trip, went out to the local lake and found a decent submerged rock to stand on and throw a couple casts in the early afternoon. Targeted the shaded areas using a slow retrieve that produced a couple good ones within an hour. Ended up landing 3 LMB, about 2lb each. Surprisingly, I caught a couple the day before in the same general area of the lake.
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.
