Alton is averaging 608.039 points per event over the past 24 months and 577.251 points per event over the past 12 months, for a generally down trend.
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.

We couldn’t believe it, but it’s 100-percent true. It’s been nearly 10 years since the last time the Elite Series has been to Lake Okeechobee.
Actually, the Elite Series has never been down there, because BASS didn’t call the tour that back in 2003. That’s how long it’s been.
So how do you go about predicting favorites on a body of water that 1) is notorious for having temperamental fish 2) many pros haven’t fished competitively on in nearly a decade 3) most pros know well? We’re glad you asked.

Edwin Evers is not giving up his No. 1 ranking without a fight, though he may be fighting a losing battle.
For the briefest of moments last week, Andy Morgan took over the top spot. The 2010 Elite Series event on the California Delta dropped off, and with it, Evers’ 25th-place finish. That was enough to dip his average just below Morgan’s.
Then Evers went and replaced the event with a 14th at the St. Johns River over the weekend. So much for that. Evers now holds a 4-point lead over Morgan for the top spot. Plus, the 2010 Clear Lake event will drop off this week (Evers finished 23rd), so his average will only improve. That’s how good Evers has been over the last two years. A 23rd finish actually hurts his average.
Before we talk more about the St. Johns River event, we should probably touch more on the dropping of the California Delta event. Particularly, that it signals the start of Kevin VanDam’s surge toward the top.

Talk about a double-edged sword.
On one hand, it’s nice to see the Major tours heading to new venues like Hartwell and the St. Johns River. On the other, it makes it a tough task to pattern pros with so little data (only three Major or Minor events have been held on the St. Johns since 2000).
But we will try our best. So let’s dive into the BASS Elites Series on the St. Johns River.
