Movers & Shakers: Minors Update


With two Minor events on two well-known fisheries, one would think we’d see plenty of movement this week in the Minors Ranking. Well, kinda.

Despite an FLW EverStart on Kentucky Lake and a BASS Northern Open on the James River, there wasn’t a single move in the top 20.

The first move we had was Kip Carter at No. 24 dropping off, but the next move was courtesy of the EverStart, as Mark Tucker slipped from 28th to 39th after he finished 69th. Meanwhile, Rodger Beaver dropped a poor 2011 tournament last week, bumping him up to slip into Tucker’s old spot at No. 28.

We had a few little movements, with Aaron Hastings dropping off at No. 34, Art Ferguson climbing 10 spots to 36th and Greg Guitierrez slipping to 42nd. However, the James River event gave us plenty of movement at the back end of the top 50. Jordan Card may never want to see the river again after he went from 43rd to 105th. Meanwhile, Joshua Wagy climbed five spots to 45th courtesy of that same event, and Tracy Adams’ top 10 at the James bumbed him nine spots to 49th.
