I went down to Orlando, FL for a week with my family. My mom and sister really like going to Disney, so one of the days that they went there, I went up to New Symerna Beach to do some fishing with my dad. We found a guy who chartered for redfish and sea trout, and he took us out. The bite was pretty slow for the first 3 hours, with a few of the nuisance sail catfish here and there. At one point, we came to a spot where we saw a school of redfish. After about 20 minutes at that spot, I finally hooked a good fish. When I brought it to the boat, we saw that it was a redfish and the captain netted it. The fish measured 25 inches long and was estimated at about 5.5-6 pounds. I took a few photos and released the fish afterwards. About an hour later, my dad set the hook into another redfish. This fish fought much harder, and was bigger than mine. It measured 28 inches long and was very thick. It was estimated to be around 8.5 pounds. I feel like we should have caught a lot more, the fish were biting, but just not taking the bait all the way in their mouths, overall a good day though. Sorry for the late post,I've had a lot going on.
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.
