My cousin and i slept overnight with -15 degree temps and no heat. it was cold but we made it. My auger froze up by morning too. But we had already drilled alot of search holes and found our spot. My friends came up at 4:00 am and we started drilling by 5. we had tons of flaggs most of the day. we managed a few pike. My buddy caught a 28 my cousin caught a 30 lng @ 6.8 lbs my only fish thru the ice was the biggest at 31 lng @ 7.5lbs. Great day of fishing with friends and trying to land that monster. Vermont next!
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.
