my wife and I dropped off our 2 nephews at friend's houses for a sleepover and what do we pass along the way? Lake Rico! So, we pull over for an hour to make a few casts... and on her 3rd cast with a 1/4oz colorado bladed spinnerbait with a "blue glimmer" Booyah skirt - BAM! she nails a decent larry about 1 1/2 pounds. She was totally excited as this was her first largemouth bass of the year. I was probably more excited that she caught it than if I had caught it... About 15 minutes later, I nailed a larry on that same white Bass Pro Shops double willow spinnerbait I've been catching em on recently - but he's only half the size of her bass! DOH! Oh well, she's 'on the board', and I am happy, as was she.
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.
