My daughter wanted to go kayak fishing with me so I took her to Ponki. The morning was nice and overcast but soon the wind picked up and whipped the water into white caps. I had to deploy the anchor and lash the boats together to keep from being swept across the pond. Still, she managed to boat a couple of mid-sized picks. I managed a couple of bass and a few picks. Not an ideal day for paddling but certainly a nice day on the water with my kid.
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.
