Best Bass Anglers


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!

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

He's on a whole different level on the mental side of the sport.
