When it comes to rankings, we all have opinions. Now, the opinions on who are the best anglers are now in one place.
The Bass Rankings Media Poll is an industry opinion poll contributed by industry experts. This ranking will deal with Major-level anglers, though the opinions themselves can be based on all levels of tournament bass fishing. In other words, if an expert wants to take into account Minor-level events or he doesn’t, that’s his opinion. We simply combined all their opinions in one place to reflect popular opinion at a given time.
The experts were asked to rank the top 20 anglers on all three Major tours, with the lone exceptions being Ken Duke and Chad Gay, who will just rank BASS and FLW anglers, respectively, as these are the organizations they work for and they will serve to offset each other. If you want to see their rankings, or any of the experts’ individual rankings, feel free to click on their names.

No Cody Meyer on the list at all?
What’s a guy have to do to get some respect from the “Media” – three consecutive top 7’s (including a 2nd and 3rd at the FLW Cup). FInished last year ranked 15th on the FLW Tour and is currently ranked 4th on the FLW Tour. Don’t get me wrong, he probabably isn’t #1 – but he should be on this list higher than many names I see on it.
Maybe the “Media” will change their mind when he gets another top 10 on Lake Lanier this year, that is if he doesn’t win it.
