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.
There are still a few tournaments going on, but in the grand scheme of it all the 2011 season has officially come to a close.
So we wanted to look back on all that was the 2011 season. In this case, who were the pros that capitalized in 2011 and climbed our rankings, and who took steps back. We’ll start with the BASS Elite Series.
Every tournament has its favorites to win. Some look at local pros as the favorites. Others go by past performances. Yet others simply go on hunches.
We go by numbers, and we have plenty of them. Hence the series “Data Overload.”
Before every Majors event, we want to use our database of stats to figure out who really are the favorites at any given event. We want to know if locals really hold the edge, or if time of year makes a difference with certain pros. We don’t want opinions. Just stats.
Are you ready? Then let’s start crunching.
For the first time ever, anglers fishing minor-level events – BASS Opens, FLW EverStarts and their corresponding championships – can see how they stack up against one another. Meanwhile, fans can monitor this list in an effort to uncover and follow rising stars that are about to make a splash in the professional ranks.
Well, bass anglers and fans, welcome to the future.
