Took a boat trip through the canal and across the bay to provincetown town over the weekend and the striped bass were in full swing. Started jigging diamond jigs because it looked just like the bait fish that were there. With no luck we switched to umbrella rig trolling and had success. Couple keepers and a beautiful day all around. There were a lot of boats there and i was impressed with the how good everyone was keeping clear of each others lines.
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.
