This was my first tournament in the club I recently joined and it was a great experience. It was also my first time using top water frogs. I made the mistake of using them all day even though the top water bite wasn't the best but it was a great learning experience and I've already gotten a lot better at fishing frogs. I did manage to catch one nice bass in the slop. It came up and slammed the frog, missed, then came back up a second time. I made sure to wait then set the hook. It put up a great fight.
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.
