Headed out to my old favorite rig to find it has been removed between our last trip in October and now....bummed out I headed to another rig. It was nice....clear water and hoards of fish met us and gave us a personal aquarium. Lots of hardtails, a few cobia, and grouper on my favorite lure... We picked up a couple MONSTER snapper and almost cried as we vented and released them....maybe we will catch them on the 1st of June when the season opens. They were both just over 30lbs!! We weren't even looking for snapper either...we actually were trying to stay away from them and catch other species we could take home for the grill. Ended up catching a small cobia....of course the others that were with him were all at least 35lbs with one that would have gone 60+.... They didn't want anything we offered them.... Water temp was right at 70 and it was nice to have beautiful seas and weather for a change.
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.
