Movers & Shakers: PAA, ABA Championship fallout


The last Major of the year is officially in the books after this weekend’s PAA event on Grand Lake.

There wasn’t much shake-up in the Major Ranking, which means where a pro is now is where he’ll be until the start of next season.

Stay tuned for a breakdown of the biggest risers and fallers of the 2013 season next week.


ABA Championship

Meanwhile, Adam Wagner punched the final ticket to the Bassmaster Classic by winning the ABA Championship on Old Hickory.

As for the new two-year Regional Ranking, since the championship had the top anglers it didn’t take long to find some movement.

Rogne Brown took a step back after the championship, but he’s still in the top 10, just slipping from sixth to ninth.

Meanwhile, Brett Brumnett didn’t have his best showing at Old Hckory — he finished 44th — but it was his eighth tournament, allowing him to debut at No. 8 in the rankings. Todd Castledine also dropped off the ranking, allowing Don Demott to stay in the top 10. And that’s just the movement in the top 10!

Oh, and in case you’re were curious, Wagner jumped from 87th to 73rd this week after his big win.
