I decided to go back to Falls Pond with my Dad and fish with shiners for bass and trout on Sunday. We got down and fished at the dam. about 15 minutes later, I hooked up with a chunky little 14 inch bass. I also caught 2 other bass and 1 pickerel. Nothing huge, but good action. Pretty good day.
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.
