Morgan’s season in perspective


imageAnyone who even half-heartedly followed tournament bass fishing this season realized Andy Morgan quietly had himself a gem.

So where does it stack up?

Since Bass Rankings was created it has seen some good ones, with Bryan Thrift’s 2010 still being the benchmark for best seasons in out database. In that one regular season he beat 956.817 percent of the field — or placed eighth — on average.

Andy Morgan’s 2013 couldn’t top that, but it did qualify as the second-best regular season ever put forth by a pro. Morgan’s 904.027 easily gave him his first Angler of the Year Crown on the FLW Tour. It also put his season ahead of David Dudley’s 2012 (897.583) and 2011 (890.492).

Also, something to watch with be how Edwin Evers finishes out his season. The best BASS Elite Series average for a regular season in our database is Skeet Reese’s 2010, when he averaged a 843.750. Evers currently sits at 865.148.
