It was not a good week for most of the FLW Tour pros in the top 20.
Between a 2010 Lake Norman event dropping off and a tough Table Rock tournament over the weekend, eight of the 13 FLW pros in the Majors World Ranking top 20 saw their averages dip in the latest update.
Meanwhile, we have a new No. 1 in the Minors-only Ranking.

FLW is renewing its tradition this weekend. You know, the one where they head to the Ozarks.
Aside from last year (when the tournament was canceled due to high water), the FLW Tour has almost always headed to Beaver Lake or Table Rock Lake in the spring.
This year is no different, with the only new twist being the timing. Instead of going in February or May, The FLW Tour is splitting the difference and going to Table Rock at the end of March.
No matter. We have plenty of data to go around. So let’s start crunching.

Brent Ehrler had an FLW Tour win drop from his ranking last week. He did a pretty good job of replacing it over the weekend.
Throughout the FLW Tour event on Lake Hartwell, Ehrler kept saying he was conserving his fish and didn’t want to be in the lead until after the final weigh-in. Looks like he wasn’t kidding, as the pro won his fourth FLW Tour event, effectively replacing his FLW Tour win at Table Rock from 2010 in the process.
So how much did the weekend victory help him in the Majors World Ranking? Well, he still hasn’t regained his spot at No. 1, but he’s back in the top five..

In case you didn’t hear, some guy named Kevin VanDam is the new No. 1 ranked angler in the world after last weekend. We guess it’s kind of a big deal.
In all seriousness, though, it is a big deal, which is why we devoted Monday’s Movers & Shakers article to the news.
Now, it’s Randall Tharp’s and the rest of the competitors’ turns from the FLW Tour Open at Lake Okeechobee.

Crowning an angler of the century right now would be like naming a winner to a marathon after the first mile. There is still plenty of fishing to be done.
However, with Bass Rankings recently expanding its database to include every Major- and Minor-level event since the turn of the century – pushing the site’s total to more than 26,000 anglers – we figured can at least now crown an angler of the first decade.
