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.
Brent Ehrler had an FLW Tour win drop from his ranking last week. He did a pretty good job of replacing it over the weekend.
Throughout the FLW Tour event on Lake Hartwell, Ehrler kept saying he was conserving his fish and didn’t want to be in the lead until after the final weigh-in. Looks like he wasn’t kidding, as the pro won his fourth FLW Tour event, effectively replacing his FLW Tour win at Table Rock from 2010 in the process.
So how much did the weekend victory help him in the Majors World Ranking? Well, he still hasn’t regained his spot at No. 1, but he’s back in the top five..
In case you didn’t hear, some guy named Kevin VanDam is the new No. 1 ranked angler in the world after last weekend. We guess it’s kind of a big deal.
In all seriousness, though, it is a big deal, which is why we devoted Monday’s Movers & Shakers article to the news.
Now, it’s Randall Tharp’s and the rest of the competitors’ turns from the FLW Tour Open at Lake Okeechobee.
Co-anglers are an interesting topic, one with no shortage of debates.
Yet, no matter how you view them, the fact remains that despite having no control over where or how they fish in a given day, some co-anglers are pretty darn consistent. To do that requires a unique skill set, which can translate over to an eventual career in the front of the boat.
With that in mind, we wanted to take a look at some of the top co-anglers currently in our sport. Word is, you’ll be seeing a few of these names on the pro side in 2012.
