Got up at 5am to get a good start on the day only to have to wait 3 hours for the rain to let up, almost decided not to put in the water. Ended up fishing till 2pm it got very hot and humid caught one pickerel that could have been a pike certainly was big enough. Didn't waste any film on that. But I did manage to catch one decent bass 1lb 11oz which gave me a nice fight. My fishing bud Stephen got skunked (last two times out) but made up for it on Sunday at Foxboro Reservoir where he caught two nice bass at the same time on a popper. Who needs a stinking umbrella fishing rig, but that is a different story. We also saw some trout swimming around but they did not look to healthy the water temp was 80 plus degrees. Even though it was not the greatest day of fishing a cruse down the Charles with a fishing bud and a couple of cigars make for a good day.
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.
