best present angler

Recommended Posts

KVD, I find it hard to believe anyone can argue against that at this point in time.

I know Ike had a great year, but he is shakey. Show me some consistency and I may change my vote.

4 Classics is hard to beat. Clunn over the ages.

Ike is the reinging AOY. That makes him the best angler this year!!!

That also cover consisentency, that is how you earn angler of the year, and also, how many cuts did Ike fail to miss?   KVD?   Facts are Facts.

Takes more than a year to erase his early years. Purely based on fishing, he is definitely right up there.

If you take into account all other aspects of the "best" present angler, I think KVD is on top.

Differing opinions are what make this place fun.

The topic is "BEST PRESENT ANGLER".

I believe theres a difference in Past and Present, and presentlly, Mikey is the best by his accomplishments, not based on opinion, rather his merits.

I'd like to change my vote all together.     With that Poll, it kinda makes you lean towards the BASS and doesn't give FLW angers any mention which is biased.

  I think Luke Clausen won both the BassMasterClassic and the FLW Championship this year.

It will be along time before any one does that again.

Luke Clausen gets my vote.

What about Dean Rojas, Aaron Martens, Skeet Reese, Greg Hackney ect

Of the ones you listed Rick Clunn is in a league that Ike and KVD may never reach

clunn was good in his time but is a has been today.he has not won anything recently or even placed that well.kvd will surely compile a record compareable to clunn a lot faster than some may think.

Rich Clunn a has been that's funny right there

Why not ask Ike or KVD if they believe his washed up

KVD is definitely #2

Like Catt, I have always been a big fan of Rick Clunn.  I have to admit that if we are trying to determine the best current angler, I would have to say it is between KVD, Ike, or Clausen, but I can't pick just one.

Ike or KVD

Man that is a tough choice.

Both are machines.

kvd still had a shot be it a small one for aoy and he was dq'ed in one tournament. i also went and looked at his (kvd) stats for 2006 and he was in the top 50 in all but the one tournament. ike had the dq in the classic and a dq last year also. if you talk all time you also have to toss in denny brauer who jumps back and forth with kvd for the all time money winner but for some reason gets left out most of the time. he wasnt the number one money winner because he wasnt constant. clausen is on a tear over the last 4yrs in big tournaments but if you look at his overall record he needs more wins. he won the classic, flw championship, a stren series tournament and the match fishing tv show. kvd is still the guy to beat at every b.a.s.s. tournament that is why he is number one. nobody in the flw rules the roost so to say that is why no of them should be in the top 5. even in the world rankings none of the flw guy are in the top 5 or 7. just my humble opinion but based on the facts. doug

the way the question is worded means their can only be one answer

Mike Ike is the current AOY, that makes him the best CURRENT angler.

case closed.

According to another site KVD is CURRENTLY ranked number 1 in the world. Now THAT is case closed. :);)

KVD got my vote. Luke Clausen and Ike are great anglers also, but I think Ish Monroe is going to make his presence known. I think we will be hearing his name alot more this season.

Ish won two tournaments last season and he seemed pretty focused for the up-coming season.

Just my opinion,

Falcon

Bassmaster had this debt and Rick Clunn won but then if one were to look at what avid said he is correct Mike Ike is AOY making him the current #1.

Angler of the Year 2006

1. Michael Iaconelli

2. Steve Kennedy

3. Kevin Vandam

4. Aaron Martens

5. Dean Rojas

If your definition of best current angler is the current AOY then you are correct.  For some people, current could mean the best over the last 2, 3, or 5 years, etc.  And Matt Fly made a very good point about Luke Clausen winning the classic and the FLW championship.  He can't be left out of consideration.

For this year, I'd have to say capt Cali.  His first 2 fish over 10lbs.  Not sure why he didn't make the poll but then again either did I, fishChris, rolo, Avid,Fluke, Senko77,......lol
