  • Tom Leedom assumes the top spot in a tie with his National Bass West team partner Keith Gunsauls in the first SDFish.com Tournament Angler Rankings of 2014. Anglers who have done well in the National Bass West series dominate the first set of ranking as there have already been 3 events completed in the season for NBW, while some other organizations are just getting started.

    With only 7 total tournaments included in this first installment of the 2014 rankings, there are lots of ties among team partners. The top 20 anglers of the 2013/2014 tournament season are highlighted below. Anglers must have fished a minimum of 2 of the 7 tournaments to qualify. The next rankings update will be posted on March 3rd, 2014 and include all qualifying tournaments to that point.

    About the rankings

    The SDFish.com Tournament Angler Power Rankings are meant to quantify the success of an individual anglers tournament season. They are not based on opinion, or make any claim to decide who the best, or worst anglers are. They are based on an anglers’ performance, and their performance alone.

    Which anglers are considered?

    All anglers who fish a minimum of 2 qualified local tournaments so far this season

    Which tournaments are considered?

    How are the rankings formulated?

    Each qualifying tournament is weighted based on the number of entries in the field. A proprietary formula awards points each finishing position for each individual angler (team tournaments score each angler independently) from the top down. Those points are then divided by the total number of tournaments an angler fishes, and a multiplier is applied to remove the decimals.

    “I don’t see my name on the list, why not?”

    The guys you see on the list had a better 2013 tournament season than you in terms of their finishing positions vs. field size, or you didn’t fish 8 total tournaments on the season to qualify.

    2014 Season Rankings

    Rankings will be updated throughout the year, and a new set of rankings will be published at the start of every month including all qualified tournaments from the start of the 2014 season (includes some tournaments from 2013) through the previous month. See ourΒ 2014 tournament scheduleΒ for a full list of tournaments that’ll be considered for the angler rankings, excluding the club level tournaments.
