went out fishing with my buddy the other day to do a little open water bass fishing in a smaller pond that is mostly open but has ice on the easier side to fish so be had to hike all the way to the other side of the pond to get to the nice open water. we cheated a little bit and were using some pond shiners or aka golden shiners between 3 and 5 inches long pain in the butt to cast with a bobber but work very well when you can get them out there!! we ended up getting a sold 3 pounder in the picture a smaller one close to a pound in a half and got on fat pickerel close to 4 pounds.
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.
