Best Bass Anglers

Shakester

The Top TenXW

1Kevin Van Dam

He is the best statistical and smartest bass angler of all time (meaning his statistics prove he is the best bass fisherman ever, which they do and he is), most classics, most wins, most money, and most AOY's prove everything! Not to mention all the other records, and he makes amazing lures!

Probably the best of all time behind roland martin

Greatest "New Breed" of bass fisherman bar-none!

He is not the best ever

Roland is like a fishing encyclopedia. He is a master at every form of the art. He has done a fantastic job bringing Scott into the ranks. Fantastic Dad. Incredible fisherman. Really nice man.

Many relate Woo to crappie fishing, but this guy was dominant on the BASS circuit. He won the 2000 classic and has an extensive tournament record. - Shakester

One of the more colorful characters on the circuit, but the guy can also fish. He has a Bassmaster Classic win to prove it. He placed 2nd in 2009 and won Angler of the Year in 2006. - Shakester

Never fished tournaments, but was THE pioneer in the "monster bass" fishery in San Diego. Caught more bass over 16 pounds than anyone in history.

A great fisherman could find fish in a bath tub! I should know prefished flw tournaments with him. His advice helped me win a co angler tournament. He has the drive an knowledge to beat you on most any water. A great friend. Good luck kj
