Went out this past Thursday, trying out some new soft plastics I got. The Missle D-Bomb, and some new colors of Damiki Hydras and RI's Sweet Beavers. Caught a few nice fish, all in the 1 n'a half to 3 range. I actually caught my first fish on a Spinnerbait too, my 20+ years of fishing and I've never caught anything on a Spinnerbait, not even a Pickerel. I always heard how they were "cheater" baits like Senkos because theyre apparently so good in Stained-Muddy water and Windy situations, yet I've never even got so much as a nibble with a Spinnerbait until Thursday. I was actually not even really fishing it, I was slowly moving over to the next location I wanted to fish under Trolling power and left it in the water about a foot and a half down, and a nice sized fish hit it while it was trolling. I didn't even have my GoPro rolling, I had to immediately turn it out like halfway through reeling it in lol. I got it though. Here's the link to the video, check it out if you'd like.
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.
