Got out to my spot as the tide started rolling out... Threw the sp (with new split rings and hooks!), nothing. Threw a bunch of bucktails, also nothing. It was bright and sunny, the only thing I had working in my favor was the wind and how it was making the waves kick.
I decided to break in my Gibb's Danny. It is the deep diving one and I found that it went a little too deep for my liking so I bent the wire down a bit to make it run shallower. First cast, and boom. I hit a really fat 38"er... It's not the fish I lost yesterday, but it'll do.
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.
