got the day off on Tuesday and was itching to get the new boat out. Launched at Congamond around 930 after the rain had passed. began just to putt putt around getting used to the boat etc. fished all over with no luck until the afternoon. changed tactics and first cast yielded a 3lb pickerel, 3 cast later a 2lb bass. cast to the same spot where i got the bass and got 2 more. called it quits after that. great day on the water!
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.
