Met a new fishing buddy from long lake bass fisherman's club. Bob was a great guy to have out on the water an he had a very nice boat. I did my regular thing and packed up enough snacks and lunch for us all. The wife made some great sandwiches to take out and they worked out well. There were a few boats out on the lake and Bobs son and back deck man joined us for some time out. They tossed swim baits for a while and then moved over to cranks and came up empty. I caught one bow on a crank-bait and Bob got two on regular worms. I was just happy to be out during the weekend and for such a great day out. The sun was up and out and there was no rain and very little wind. Not much fish to show for our time out but it sure helped with the cabin fervor.
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.
