Wheeler's Stranglehold Continues

Jacob Wheeler continues to maintain his massive lead in the BassFan World Rankings following three consecutive Top-10 finishes on the Bass Pro Tour to begin the 2022 campaign.

Wheeler has an advantage of more than 35 points over new No. 2 Michael Neal, the winner of the MLF Pro Circuit event at Sam Rayburn Reservoir and the 3rd-place finisher in the Bass Pro Tour event at Lewis Smith Lake. Ott DeFoe, who was previously 2nd, dropped to 3rd.

Lake Fork BPT winner Alton Jones Jr. climbed from 10th to 4th. John Cox, who logged Top-10 finishes in each of the first two Elite Series tournaments, rounds out the Top 5.

The bottom half of the Top 10 consists of Brandon Palaniuk, Patrick Walters, Chris Johnston, Seth Feider and Jordan Lee.

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.
