I heard the haddock fishing was really good on Yankee fleet, so I decided to take a fishing trip with them. We left the dock at 2:30pm, and got to our spot at about 3. We were about 7 miles out. As soon as we dropped anchor, people started hooking up left and right with cod and haddock. One guy caught a few 5+ pound haddock on buck tail jigs with clams. I started off by catching a couple of cod, and a small haddock. My Dad caught one cod, and I caught a 17 inch keeper haddock at the end. It's such a shame we can't keep cod these days because they're so tasty, and the guy next to me caught a 2 foot beauty that died when he released it, and he couldn't keep it(ugh, such a waste). We headed back at about 5:30pm, and as we got to the dock, there was a huge crowd gathered. I looked around, and below the crowd was FV-TUNA.COM from Wicked Tuna! Overall, really good fishing on Yankee Fleet.
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.
