Man I have always wanted to catch a shark. It almost seemed like something I wouldn't ever do. My good friend Sean told me stories of him and his brother catching them like crazy years ago. We had talked about going since last year and one day on lunch break at work we decide to do it. We headed out in to the Atlantic through the thick early morning fog. We arrived at our first stop as the fog lifted. I got to cut the chum, to most people it would be a chore but to me it was fun. 7 hours of fishing and two sharks and a dog fish. I caught my first shark ever an 8 foot blue shark and Sean got a 5 foot mako. The cool park was I had hooked the shark on the smallest rigg we had just to have an extra pole in the water. We used that rod for stripers and blues and to catch a shark on it it was a work out. The pics are on my profile i couldnt remember how to add them to the 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.
