Best Bass AnglersShakester
The Top Ten
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's just that good
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!
He's on a whole different level on the mental side of the sport.V 24 Comments
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
Inspired me to fish. Great guy, great angler, and followed me on Instagram and likes my photos regularly. 7 BASS wins and 3 AOY’s, as well as 23 tour level national titles and around 70 percent of the time he was in the money. Definitely think his spot on this list is good though, as VanDam barely edges him out even though he keeps widening the gap! True legends!V 7 Comments
The only other guy to have 4 Bassmaster titles. - Shakester
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.

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 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

Most versatile fisherman out there!
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
Better than #15
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.
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.
Its embarrassing he didn't make the list
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!
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
He taught all the above!
Very good angler, one of the best anglers of all time when it comes to flippin, using that ole biffle bug!
