First time fishing after work! Launched around 5pm and I was off by 7pm, so it was a short trip. I hit a couple of the points that usually produce this time of year. The water south of the MA pike was around 49 degrees and the water north of the pike was hovering around 43. I went about 1.5 hours without a sniff on the north side. So I went through the tunnel (between north and south pond) and marked a small school of fish in the middle of the tunnel. I ended up getting 1 bass out of the school on a 3-4ft diving crank. All in all it was great to be able to go out after work!
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.
