The Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year regular-season standings are determined by a system that awards points based on final standings in Bassmaster Elite Series events.
The system awards 300 points to the winner of each tournament, with a five-point decrease per position through fifth place, which recieves 280 points. There is a four-point decrease from sixth (276) to 10th (260); a three-point decrease per position from 11th place (257) to 15th (245); and a two-point decrease per position from 16th place through the rest of the field.
Anglers who finish in a tie receive points based on a formula that adds points of the affected positions and divided the total by the number of anglers tied for the position. The resulting number represents the number of points awarded to each angler in a tie.
For each day he leads a tournament, including the final day, an angler is awarded five bonus points.
An Angler must weigh a legal fish to register for A.O.Y. points, and those who don't are awarded 0 points for the tournament.
