Alex & I went out on our first trip together this year and decided to give Whitehall a try. Got help from friends here on MAFF (thanks everyone). Beautiful lake and lots of places to throw a lure. We started with topwater with just some picks biting. Then switched to worms & creature baits which is what we stuck with the rest of the day. Boated 8 bass for a small bag, all where in the 1-2lb range. Will be going back there again but maybe on a week day when it not so crazy.
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.
