Fished the lighthouse and rock piles. Had no hits the drift was to fast and the wind was kicking up some white caps. Before going back to the marina I tied off on a pile in a sheltered area and chummed the water with some old homemade chum. Wayne had a real hard strike from either a blue or striper, but was unable to set the hook. He was using live spot for bait. I in the mean time caught one spot after another until I ran out of bait. Ended up with (45) spot, which will be used for stripe bait. It's been nice to go out and finally catch something.
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.
