My Buddy Brian met me over at Copicut today. I waited for him for a while, casting my deep diver, red devil, and white Strike King lures. I had a nightcrawler out on a bobber. I was on the rocky side here, and had no action. After Brian got there we moved to another spot that was more secluded and less rocky. We used shiners attatched to bobbers, all the while I used a couple other poles and played around with my baby brush hog, Gulp smelt on a carolina rig, and a few others. Beautiful day, relaxing and fun, Brian and I caught up on how things were going, and before you know it I had the first Pickerel on my line that I ever caught. I was beautiful, big, and about two feet I gather, weighed a couple pounds by my estimation. Then a while later Brian caught his Chain Pickerel, roughly the same size or the same one. We didn't stay much longer cause it was getting late and we had to go home. Fantastic 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.
