The lunch break trip got my blood pumping so after work I through the kayak in Wrights Reservior and Landed "The Monster" (She had to be pushing 10) about 5:30pm. Not much luck other then her but she was worth it all.
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.
