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.
We received some interesting feedback when we decided to include the PAA in our Majors World Ranking. Some adamantly opposed it, while others – particularly professional anglers – applauded the decision.
Regardless of your stance, one look at some of the names in our ranking and it’s clear that some serious talent from both other major tours fishes the PAA. Now, having looked back to see who were the movers and shakers on the 2011 BASS Elite Series and FLW Tour the last two weeks, it’s time to do the same for the PAA.
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.
