This was my first Quabbin experience and it was amazing. It was pretty windy and cool out but the water was crystal clear. The place is a little overwhelming so we only really stayed in a 3/4 mile area the entire day...and never took the life vests off. As always, I focused on bass fishing while Mike, my partner in crime, worked his go to all around numbers lure - the yellow rooster tail. I only caught 3 fish - Rock Bass, LMB, and a Smallie combined we pulled in everything including a rainbow trout and some pickerel. We both lost really big Smallies but it was still a great time. Can't wait to get back there.
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.
