My son and I went on a trip with a guy who does fly fishing in aruba around the coast of the island in the mangroves and such. Kind of like we do around the edges of a lake. We used regular spinning reels with 15 lb braid and 25 lb mono leaders. This was a real good time. My son caught a nice grouper and a sand digger. I caught a needle fish and a 13 lb Barracuda.
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.
