Today was a couple of firsts for me........first time out in the ocean on a boat, first time actully touching a shark and first time holding my own catch. All this time I have been fishing and I have never held my own fish! Three of us on the boat and all we managed to pull in was 1 keeper fluke, 5 throw backs, 1 tiny short fin mako and one starfish.
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.
