I Just got back from vacation. I went to Maine with one game plan and ended up learning that it wouldn't work. I did learn a little but i didn't have alot of time to experiment to much. After fishing with my cousin (Sardine hunter) and getting my but kicked by his jig/ grub combo. I became a fast learner and turned the tables on his next venture with me. While i only landed 2 decent fish and a dozen short ones i did catch a nice 4lb smallie that gave a nice fight and ended up being probably the biggest smallies my cousin has ever seen? This is my 3rd 4lb + small mouth ever. I learned a little and can't wait to fish again!!!
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.
