Trends: Our trend feature compares an angler's average points from the prior 24 months to the average points from the prior 12 months to establish whether the angler's recent performance exceeds or falls behind that of a longer span. If the recent average is within 2.5% of the average for the longer period, we consider the angler's performance to be steady, as indicated by an almost equals to sign.
