The Top Ten

Kevin 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!
An amazing fisherman, very knowledgable, 4 classic wins, 7 angler of the year awards, owns almost all the records for bass fishing, has all the trophies and accomplishments to prove it.
Probably the best of all time behind roland martin
[Newest]I concur he is the best ever!

2Bill Dance
3 times B.A.S.S. angler of the year. 23 titles including 7 B.A.S.S. wins


3Rick Clunn
The only other guy to have 4 Bassmaster titles.


4Roland Martin
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.
19 tournaments won, 9 B.A.S.S. Angler-of-the-Year titles.

5Jimmy Houston
15 BASSMaster Classics and won the B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year title in both 1976 and 1986

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.


7Mike Iaconelli
He's crazy and has revolutionized the sport
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.


8Aaron Martens
BASS angler of the year title in 2004, 6 wins, 55 top-ten finishes (including three 2nd place finishes in the Bassmaster Classic as of 2010), and over $2 million in career winnings across FLW and BASS.

The 2008 Classic champion which was overdue after making it to 11 of them.
