I went back to Hale Reservation today with my brother and my dad to go for stocked rainbows. We hit up Storrow Pond, as they just stocked it last week. When we got there, they were feeding off the top, and I knew it would be a good morning. My dad starting off with two average-sized rainbows on spoons, then I got one on floating salmon eggs on an egg sinker rig. After that, my dad got another one on a spoon, as well as a couple little larries. I caught another rainbow, surprisingly on a spoon that was tied directly to thick braid, as I switched to try for bass. I lent my brother my egg sinker rigged rod and he got hi first rainbow ever. We also caught a million sunfish with inchworms when the trout bite was slow, and another guy that was their caught a nice Crappie, maybe 11 inches. After that, we tried out Buckmaster but got skunked. Still a great day in all, with six landed trout in total.
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.
