Movers & Shakers: PAA Update


Fresh off the PAA Series event on Table Rock Lake over the weekend, we felt it was time to check in on the PAA Ranking. After all, thre were some pretty heavy hitters fishing over the weekend.

The No. 1-ranked PAA angler, Steve Kennedy, opted to skip the event, but the new No. 2, Shinichi Fukae finished seventh for him to debut right behind Kennedy.

Local James Watson won the Table Rock event, jumping him up from 27th to 21st in the ranking.

Other notable names rising and falling after this weekend included Brian Swoden moving up to No. 3, Russ Lane slipping three spots to fifth, and Fred Roumbanis (now ninth) and Wesley Strader (now 13th) basically switching spots. Greg Vinson is now right between them in 12th.
