Best Bass AnglersShakester
The Top Ten
He had won 4 Bassmaster Classic Championships. And is an idol to 2 generations of fisherman. He is humble, and down to earth. Definitely the GOAT.
The best I've ever seen and it seems like every other fisherman out there is chasing him always every tournament all you hear them saying is trying to keep up with or beat 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!
Pioneer in catch and release so others ( like KVD) can enjoy the sport! Ha!
Great fisherman but I'm better
Had the most dominant tournament stretch of all time. Definite top 2!
He's got to be number 1
We want the Niles North Wide Receivers to catch the ball like Rick Clunn catches Bass fish!
The only other guy to have 4 Bassmaster titles. - Shakester
Even bill dance and jimi Houston will tell you that Roland is the grandfather of all fishing pros
Roland is the best. Better than KVD because of age and experience he should be number 1. KVD is getting there though.
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. - Shakester
Jimmy is classically the BEST
15 BASSMaster Classics and won the B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year title in both 1976 and 1986 - Shakester
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
Finished top 5 all 3 years in hometown on James river,good ol guy that made it big WOO WOO WOO!
Best finesse angler all time!
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. - Shakester
Most versatile fisherman ever.
Exciting and fun to watch. Does a great job of promoting fishing and getting kids involved in fishing.
Ike is one of the most exciting anglers on the planet. He has truly bettered the sport by attracting younger people to fish by utilizing his wild charisma and "never quit" attitude. Ike is one of the best, hands down.
He's crazy and has revolutionized the sport
One of the most accurate casters out there, extremely talented and knowledgeable and understands every part of the game well!
Brought flipping to the bassmasters, as well as popularizing the drop shot. Insane fisherman and great guy!
One of the true legends of the sport. Co-founded Major League Fishing and had qualified for 30 bassmaster classics. Great guy and amazing fisherman!
Skeet reese has designed many top of the range lures and rods for bass, he is one of my favorite bass fisherman drawing with dave mercer
He only has one Bassmaster Classic title, but plenty of other wins and earnings. - Shakester
This guy should be number 1
Love this guy, I have learned a lot watching his you tube channel, would love the chance to fish with him someday!
A great fisherman and a charming personality I wish he makes it to the top
An amazing fisherman and has an amazing personality as well

Best in the bussiness
The 2008 Classic champion which was overdue after making it to 11 of them. - Shakester
From my hometown of waco tx! Sic em Alton!
He is a good person, and role model.
Because this is Jim Alan good luck at lake Hartwell this weekend
Most versatile fisherman out there!
Too low on the list
Better than #15
High percentage, in big tournaments fished. He could have stayed in and won lots more!
Isn't Hank the only angler to win the triple crown? Lol
The best all I got to say!
2 time classic winner 79 and 89 and y'all have him at 12
Good fisherman,best talk show host
Top money winner prior to the current $$ being paid...Top five for sure
An infamous shallow-water angler, Ish Monroe utilizes frogs to catch big fish and haul in tournament wins.
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.
"I caught that on a piece of lettuce"
Its embarrassing he didn't make the list
He went to my moms high school one year
Just won his first classic so he can't be in the top ten, but he deserves to be somewhere, but KVD is still the best bass angler of all time!
He taught all the above!
2 time BASS Master Classic Winner with multiple too 10 finishes in Classic and the 2005 FLW Champion. Over 20 BASS master classic appearances
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
Very good angler, one of the best anglers of all time when it comes to flippin, using that ole biffle bug!
The best fishing show theme song of all time
The host of the Real Fishing Show and in my opinion the Hank Parker of Canada!
