We’re in a pattern of twos for four weeks. As is, starting this past weekend there will be tournaments going for both BASS and FLW on three of four weekends.
This past weekend it was the Minors (Cayuga Lake and 1000 Islands), then it’s the Majors (Lake Oneida and Detroit River), then it’s a week break before the Minors are at it again (Fort Gibson and Potomac River).
It all should make for some serious shuffling in the rankings when it’s all said and done.
For now, let’s look at what this weekend did to them.
The top six remain unchanged in the Minors-Only World Ranking. But that seventh spot seems to get a lot of movement in recent weeks. Art Ferguson was there, but after an 87th at Cayuga, he’s slipped to 27th, allowing Michael Tuck to move up a slot.
The rest of the top 20 remains relatively unchanged, minus the fall of Chris Johnston, who’s 57th at 1000 Islands dropped him from 17th to 33rd. And in the top 30, Chad Pipkens climbs a few spots to 24th.
Finally, the jump of the day was Bob Izumi, who leapt from 66th to 41st thanks to his second at 1000 Islands.
Make sure to check back next week to see what happens in the Majors World Rankings, specifically the debut of Forrest Wood Cup winner Jacob Wheeler and our breakdown of the Angler of the Year races.
