Two Major events means twice the shake-ups this week as we see how the Elite Series event on Toledo Bend and FLW Tour event on Kentucky Lake shifted the anglers around in the Majors World Ranking.

It’s time to crunch the data to try and uncover the favorites heading into the Elite Series event at Bull Shoals.

We said if anyone had a chance at ending the revolving door at No. 1 it was Kevin VanDam.
Well, he’s finally made his move in the Majors World Ranking.
When Bass Rankings launched, people were beside themselves that KVD was ranked third. Our argument (and really, it wasn’t an argument. Just facts) was that his poor beginning to the 2010 season was weighing him down. However, with the 2010 Clear Lake event dropping last week (VanDam’s worst tournament in the last two years), combined with his eighth at Lake Okeechobee this past weekend, VanDam jumped from third to firmly into the No. 1 position, with his best time of year about to begin.

Edwin Evers is not giving up his No. 1 ranking without a fight, though he may be fighting a losing battle.
For the briefest of moments last week, Andy Morgan took over the top spot. The 2010 Elite Series event on the California Delta dropped off, and with it, Evers’ 25th-place finish. That was enough to dip his average just below Morgan’s.
Then Evers went and replaced the event with a 14th at the St. Johns River over the weekend. So much for that. Evers now holds a 4-point lead over Morgan for the top spot. Plus, the 2010 Clear Lake event will drop off this week (Evers finished 23rd), so his average will only improve. That’s how good Evers has been over the last two years. A 23rd finish actually hurts his average.
Before we talk more about the St. Johns River event, we should probably touch more on the dropping of the California Delta event. Particularly, that it signals the start of Kevin VanDam’s surge toward the top.

Last week was a busy one. The next two will be worse.
In the last week we had a new No. 1 angler in the world (Kevin VanDam), some major shifting in the Majors World Ranking and now, we’re only days away from the Bassmaster Classic.
Before we talk about our Classic coverage, we did want to touch upon the Bass Open from a week ago. With all the chaos following the FLW Tour Open at Okeechobee, the Central Open at Lewisville kind of got lost. So we wanted to find it. It is a Movers & Shakers article after all.
