Professionals get all the attention and glamour, whether you’re talking baseball or tournament bass fishing. But at some point in both sports, nearly every pro found himself in the Minors.
In that regard, both sports are uniquely alike. Also alike is the fact that the Minors are the highest level of competition most players and anglers will ever achieve. However, unlike baseball, the lack of a jump to the Majors for an angler is not always about talent but also financial constraints.
Regardless, the Minors World Ranking, particularly the Minors-only ranking, showcases the future stars of the sport, along with the best regional talent in the country. These are the grinders who are trying to build names for themselves, and we enjoy helping them do so by showcasing their achievements on our site.
Unfortunately, the volatility of which anglers moved throughout the rankings due to increased or decreased participation and various unknowns made it very hard to do a “Year in Review” recap.
Yet we still wanted to give the Minors-only level anglers their props. So we decided to use our Trending feature to showcase who seem to be the up-and-comers to watch in the Minors and in the sport. Understand that all the anglers at the top of the Minors-only rankings are top talents. The anglers on the following list just happen to be the ones who seem to be on the rise.
