BassFan World Rankings PRESENTED BY

Updated: 4/18/2019

Evers In Command

With a victory and three other top-7 finishes in the first four events of the MLF Bass Pro Tour's inaugural season, plus an 8th-place showing at the Bassmaster Classic, Edwin Evers has moved into the top slot in the newest edition of the BassFan World Rankings. It's the first time he's occupied the No. 1 position since May 2013.

The Oklahoman has a commanding 16-point lead over 2nd-place Jacob Wheeler, who was 2nd in both the Classic and the Raleigh BPT event. Jordan Lee, who was No. 1 in the last edition, dropped to 3rd, followed by Raleigh winner Jacob Powroznik and Brandon Palaniuk.

FLW Tour aces Bryan Thrift and Scott Martin lead the second half of the top 10, which is rounded out by Chris Johnston, Mark Daniels Jr. and Brent Ehrler.

Stetson Blaylock, the winner of last week's Winyah Bay Bassmaster Elite Series and the runner-up the previous week at Lake Hartwell, rocketed up 63 places to No. 23. Lake Chickamauga BPT winner Andy Morgan, whose spent long stretches at No. 1 in the rankings, climbed from 56th to 21st and Cherokee Lake FLW Tour winner Andrew Upshaw gained 14 positions to 77th.

The next event that will impact the Rankings is the Smith Lake BPT, which gets under way April 30.

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.
