Most bass fans in your standard Bassmaster Elite Series event concentrate on pounds and ounces and who is capturing the most of those to create a victory.

Elite Anglers, though, spend a lot of time looking at points. Every one of them wants to capture the most pounds and ounces in any event. That’s the essence of the game. But when it’s over, they are also looking at just how many points they receive in the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year race.

Those points are the things that actually get an angler into the Classic, qualify the top anglers for the Toyota Tundra All-Star Week and of course crowns the Angler of the Year.

The intricacies of rises and falls in that list week to week can make or break an angler’s year.

To get a good look at how some anglers climb or drop in those standings take a look at the top 40 in those points fared after the Evan Williams Bourbon Carolina Clash on Lake Murray.
