BassFan World Rankings PRESENTED BY

Updated: 2/27/2020

Wheeler Way Out Front

With a victory and a 3rd-place finish to start the Bass Pro Tour season, Jacob Wheeler has strengthened his grip on the top slot in the BassFan World Rankings. He has an advantage of 31 1/2 points over Jacob Powroznik, who climbed two spots to 2nd with his BPT victory at Lake Okeechobee.

Stetson Blaylock, whose 9th-place finish in the Bassmaster Elite Series opener at the St. Johns River was his fourth straight top-10 showing, catapulted 17 places to 3rd. Edwin Evers, the reigning BPT Angler of the Year and Redcrest champion, dropped two places to 4th. Jordan Lee climbed two places to round out the top 5.

The bottom half of the top 10 consists of reigning Bassmaster Classic champion Ott DeFoe (down one spot), Jeff Sprague (up four), Okeechobee runner-up Michael Neal (up six), Brent Ehrler (down one) and Jamie Hartman (down seven).

The next event that will impact the Rankings is the 50th Bassmaster Classic, set for March 6-8 at Lake Guntersville in Alabama.

About the World Rankings

The BassFan World Rankings were created in 2001 to answer a simple question - who is the best professional bass angler in the world? - and to give fishing fans a way to track their favorite pros, as well as to show the non-fishing world that consistently catching fish isn't "just luck".


While the three leagues - Major League Fishing, B.A.S.S. and FLW - have their own single-year point races (called Angler of the Year races, which are not rankings), and "power rankings" have occasionally up in the sport, these are not World Rankings. World Rankings in all professional sports are complex, multi-year statistical endeavors simply because that's the only way to accurately and fairly show consistent performance over time.


Until BassFan did it, no one produced a statistical, multi-year ranking system for professional bass fishing using results from the top tours. These are the MLF Bass Pro Tour, Bassmaster Elite Series and FLW Tour. The BassFan World Rankings will also include results from other competitive (i.e., non-exhibition) tournaments that feature the world's top pros.



How

Here's a brief overview of what's involved in calculating the BassFan World Rankings. (For confidentiality reasons, the proprietary methodology won't be discussed in detail.)


  • The rankings are based on angler performance in top-level Bass Pro Tour, B.A.S.S. and FLW events. These events are the top competitions in the sport and attract the top fishermen.
  • Events are weighted based on strength of field (calculated using the BassFan World Rank of everyone in the field) and size of field, meaning that it's easier to do well in smaller-field events than larger-field ones.
  • Bonus points are given for winning and for placing in the top 10 percent in all regular-season events. No bonuses are given for league Angler of the Year awards, points or standings because that data is already accounted for in the World Rankings methodology.
  • Championships are treated differently than regular-season tournaments.
  • The BassFan World Rankings methodology ensures that anglers who fish only one circuit are not at a disadvantage versus anglers who fish more than one. Rather, anglers who fish more events have more chances to do better (or worse) than anglers who fish fewer events. A simple example: six 5th-place finishes are better than three, and four 100th-place finishes are worse than two.
  • The rankings use data from the current and immediately prior years only (a rolling 2-calendar year cycle).
  • The rankings are not an indication of who is/was the best bass angler ever. That is not a World Rankings. It's a list.
  • As with all World Rankings in all sports, the methodology used in the BassFan World Rankings calculation will change over time based on feedback from interested parties.
  • Bassmaster Opens, FLW Series (formerly Stren/EverStart) and Bass Fishing League (BFL) tournament data are not included in the BassFan World Rankings because these are "minor-league" or "triple-A" events.
