Went to Hale Reservation about 7 this morning with a couple family members. We hit up the trout pond first. Things started out good: my cousin and I got a double hook up on our first casts. That was my cousin's first 'bow, so it was pretty exciting for him. Both fish were decent stockies. Other than that, my brother and I each hooked up, but the fish spit the hook. We moved off to Noanet Pond, fishing jigs off the dock. My brother hooked up with a dink LMB, and then the weather got bad, so we packed up and left. No lunkers, but still a pretty good morning.
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.
