The Cabela's Top Gun Championship is the only real world championship in professional bass fishing. Why? It is the only tournament in the world that only the world's best professional anglers are eligible to fish.

Only the Top 25 anglers in the world – according to the State Farm World Rankings – after the 2005 Bassmaster and FLW tour seasons qualify, along with the 2005 tour Anglers of the Year if they are not already in the Top 25 in the world.
That's it. You're that good or you don't make it.
This is significantly different than the Bassmaster Classic and the FLW Tour Championship. While both those championships are big and important, they do not field the best anglers in the world – as determined by performance alone.
