Noy Villayasane, aka Mystyle Noy surges to the top of our latest power rankings on the heels of a great two week stretch in February. Noy won the San Diego Team Series event, the first of the season, at El Capitan on February 15th and then followed that up with a 3rd the next Saturday in the Anglers Marine Owners Invitational event also at El Capitan. Both of those events had good participation, and thus rewarded Noy with a lot of points to apply to his ranking.
This month’s rankings considered 12 total tournaments, of which anglers must have fished a minimum of 4 to qualify for the power rankings. The next rankings update will be posted the first week of April, 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 4 qualified local tournaments so far this season
Which tournaments are considered?
- 4 tournaments in the 2013/2014 National Bass West San Diego Region season
- 2 tournament in the 2014 American Bass Association San Diego Region season
- 2 tournament in the 2014 California Bass Federation Southern California Region season
- 2 tournament in the Anglers Marine Owners Invitational Series
- 2014 FLW Western Series Pro/Am at Lake Havasu
- 1 tournament in the San Diego Team Series (Day) season
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 our 2014 tournament schedule for a full list of tournaments that’ll be considered for the angler rankings, excluding the club level tournaments.
