So I decided to head out to Lake Ripple this past Mon. It was a bit cold, with the weatherman claiming wind chills got it down to -35 degrees F. I believe him, because within 10 minutes of my arrival spray from my auger had got stuck on my eyelashes resulting in both my eyes being frozen shut! So around 6 am I managed to finish cutting my five holes and bunkered down for the wait. Long story short, ended up with 5 flags in 3 hours, which yielded 5 total fish. 3 bass (2 of em nice size) and 2 pickerel (one fattie.) So all in all a great day, even with the shoveling, the cold, and putting my foot down deep into an old hole. CAN'T BEAT ICE FISHING! Can't wait to
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.
