10-15mph winds with 20mph gusts meant no chasing albies in my little boat today. Opted to run down to the Quinipiac River in Meriden after the Skins game. Waded along the linear trail above Hanover. This was the first time I have fished it since the storms and the fish haven't seen much pressure. Up until a week ago, the water levels were still too high. Some new downed trees changed my usual routine, and small perch were aggresive. Did manage to catch one nice 15" rainbow on a Rap Minnow. Nice way to relax for a few hours. Down to VA for a wedding (may sneak in a blue cat trip) and I hope to get back out on the LIS when I return.
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.
