My friend Steve gave me a tip on a lake in central MA where he's been killing them, so James, Jaden and I decided to bypass our regular spot and give it a shot. It paid off big time. I caught the first few fish of the morning, including a 4.14 lb slob that engulfed a Lucky Craft Sammy. I was so excited, I said " I don't need to catch another fish all day and I'll still be happy." We'll guess what, I didn't. You will never hear those words come out of my mouth again as long as I live. From that point forward James caught fire. He steadily caught fish all day totaling more than ten. Included in the ten was a massive 5.13 pig he caught flipping an overhang. It is his new personal best. Jaden also did good with at least five fish on the senko. All in all it was another great day on a new body of water. Thanks Steve for the tip, and congrats to James for his new personal best.
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.
