Today was an unreal fishing trip. I took the dog down to the lake and obviously I brought a rod to see if anything was going on. I wasnt expecting much, as this storm is rolling in. I figured I'd try slow rolling a spinnerbait in all that current the wind was making. It worked, to say the least. I caught 10 bass in an hour. My five best weighed in at close to 14lbs. I left when it started to snow, and my dog Penny was starting to drive me crazy. It killed me to leave, but I cant complain.
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.
