I got a Coleman Crawdad a couple of weeks ago, and I was finally able to bring it out with my dad this afternoon. No fish, but I did manage to hook three Clams, something I haven't done before. It was a pretty good day to be out on the boat and it was good to get a feel for how the boat handled. I caught some larries this morning, anyway, so I wasn't itching to catch something as bad as I would have. Has anybody else ever had clams go for lures by the way?
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.
