I'll try to keep this short. Went to NH to fish stumps pre-Irene but they were less than glorious. Fished the pads and caught a lot of 1.75 - 2+ range fish - mostly on the frog and pitching texas rigged plastics into laydowns that collected grass and weeds on the branches. The frog bite was ON for about 15 minutes as the clouds and light rain rolled in. This beast absolutely crushed the frog. I saw it's head before pulling it up and thought it was going to pass 6 lbs. easily. All head no cheese. Came in at 5 lbs. 2 oz.
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.
