After the Knopps pond tourney of failures and paying my rent to the Landlord again, I couldnt resist going back to old faithful, Maspenock, and continuing my search for Larry.
We were just casting from shore, tossing out everything we had. I was getting ready to leave and decided, "why not toss out 1 more cast." Landed it right next to this infamous dock, which has caught several beasts over the last year, and BOOOOM, my rod was bent, and i was in for a battle. I knew it was a slob because it wasnt a smooth reel in, i was actually "cranking" hand over hand almost as if i was Deep Sea fishing...Well, we got her to the shore, As soon as she was netted, the hook snapped of in Larry's mouth. Thank the lord we netted it before the hook gave out. She was 21in and weighed 5.4lbs (unsure HOW its not atleast 6lbs)
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.
