Myself, Tim, and Jared took the yaks out in the ocean for the first time. We launched at Webb Park at 8 a.m. and worked around the islands and the Back river til 1 p.m. We were trolling T&W and throwing a bucktail and lures. Five hours on the water and not even a hit. It was good to get the yaks in the salt and get comfortable out there, a few more things to be aware of compared to freshwater fishing. We all kept the yaks right side up and the weather was great, so I'd consider that a success for the first salt trip!
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.
