Considering Chris Lane and Brandon Medlock have each won two season openers in the last three seasons, we started thinking about the best anglers in the state of Florida. Not necessarily guys who live there, but guys who excel in those early season events in the Sunshine State. So we decided to look into it.
It’s here. The 2012 season is finally here!
And it only took two tournaments to see some shake-ups in the Minors and Minors-only rankings.
More than 26,000 anglers competed in Major- and Minor-level bass tournaments since the year 2000, and all of them are now in Bass Rankings’ database.
We catch up with Charles Bebber, the No. 1-ranked Minors-only angler, to talk about his plans for 2012.
We caught up with Brent Ehrler to talk about his No. 1 Majors World Ranking, his path to success and how he feels he compares to other top pros.
We’ve looked back at the three major tours. Now it’s time for the grand finale – the Majors World Ranking.
FLW Tour, you’re up.
Last week we looked back to see who where the movers and shakers on the 2011 BASS Elite Series. Now it’s time to do the same for the FLW Tour, and again, we have a battle for the top spot.
You asked for it, and again, we listened.
Since the release of our site, users, anglers and industry personnel have been blown away with the amount of information on our site. Yet the one thing that kept popping up was the want for a one-year world ranking to show who is the best lately. While it was possible to gather that information via our Custom Search, we wanted to make it easier for users to access that information. Hence, you will now find a one-year criteria world ranking for Majors.
Every tournament has its favorites to win. Some look at local pros as the favorites. Others go by past performances. Yet others simply go on hunches.
We go by numbers, and we have plenty of them. Hence the series “Data Overload.”
Before every Majors event, we want to use our database of stats to figure out who really are the favorites at any given event. We want to know if locals really hold the edge, or if time of year makes a difference with certain pros. We don’t want opinions. Just stats.
Are you ready? Then let’s start crunching.
