After several days (May 5th, May 20th and May 30) I've decided Mansfield is to long a drive to go looking for pike. A couple of nice bass and 1 nice C-Pik, but NO PIKE. The lure has been the most productive that I've used in a while though. Large spinner blade, UV reflective orange (on one side) gold on the other, large orange beads, tipped with berkley 3" minnow. Also in silver with UV reflective green tip. On MAy 20th the C-Pik were hitting the lure so hard that it surprised me (every time) that they were not pike.
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.
