Had an early start to the weekend! Jumped in the canoe with my son, despite threatening weather. The fishing (catching) was slow for the first couple of hours. A couple claps of thunder chased us from the water to shelter and after the front moved through the catching picked up. It rained like hell but the fish are already wet! We caught 23 fish in all, 5 in the first 2 hours and the rest in the last 1 1/2. All the LMB were showing signs of post spawn and all were in the 1 1/2 lbs to 2 1/2 lbs range. A pretty good start to the weekend, for sure.
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.
