Braved the morning rain to catch the high tide with a few friends from New England Kayak Fishing. This was my fourth time out and FINALLY I caught something -- a nice 20+ inch bluefish on a pencil popper. Boy do those things put up a fight, they just do not give up. No other fish despite a number of attacks on my popper but I was thrilled to bust my cherry. One of the other guys managed 2 stripers and 3 bluefish on poppers and white shads. Looking forward to the next trip.
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.
