Is Skeet really #1?

BassFan currently ranks Skeet Reese as #1, KVD as #2, and Brent Ehrler as #3 in the current BassFan World Rankings.  All three have had a turn in the #1 position in recent weeks.

According to our poll, most of you think the BassFan World Rankings are flawed.  Here are the results of our poll:

It seems the vast majority of you seem to think KVD is the best.

What are my thoughts on the subject? –Frankly, I think most of you are wrong!

When I recently wrote that the BassFan World Rankings are flawed, I was referring to the fact that Brent Ehrler was ranked ahead of Skeet and KVD at the time.  I put forth a couple of theories as to how the Rankings were rewarding FLW Pros over BASS pros.  That was when Brent Ehrler was #1.

Now Skeet Reese is on top.  Unlike Brent, Skeet and KVD have fished toe-to-toe against each other in the same league for the last 24 months.  Comparing anglers in the same league is a much easier task than comparing anglers across leagues.   The tweaks I suggested in my earlier article dealt with comparing the FLW pros to BASS pros.  I do not have the same concerns comparing pros fishing in the same league, such as Skeet and KVD.

Comparing the head to head performance of these anglers over the last 24 months, it is obvious that Skeet Reese, without question, deserves his current ranking as the #1 angler in the world.

This post on InsideLine further discusses Skeet’s recent dominance.

UPDATE 04/23/2010 — Our friends at the Big Indiana Bass blog have developed an alternative ranking system.  Check it out here.
