Movers & Shakers: Steady Week for Minors


Don’t worry Minors anglers. We didn’t forget about you.

In Monday’s Movers & Shakers article, we focused solely on the Majors instead of the usual double duty. But when a new No. 1 Majors angler in the world is crowned, we had to devote the entire article to Mark Rose.

Now, it’s the Minors’ turn.

There’s been a little bit of shuffling in the Minors-only World Ranking top 20,  with a 2010 FLW EverStart on Sam Rayburn dropping off on Feb. 6, dropping Charles Bebber from fifth to seventh in the process. Yet, the rest of the top 20 remains relatively unchanged after the FLW EverStart on Lake Amistad last weekend.

Todd Castledine, fresh off his second-place finish at Amistad, moved from 19th to 17th. On the other side of the coin, David Curtis dropped from 17th to 33rd after he placed 73rd at Amistad.

However, with the BASS Open on Lewisville Lake this weekend, an FLW EverStart on Lake Havasu in two weeks and the dropping off of an FLW EverStart on Lake Okeechobee on Feb. 27, expect to see some shifting throughout the month.
