North American Fishing Guides

"STATE FARM BassFan.com World Rankings"

Notable movement:

> Kevin VanDam is still No. 1, but his lead in the points has shrunk to its lowest point yet. Alton Jones is now 3 points behind: he had been 5 1/2 behind, which is where Jay Yelas, in 3rd, now sits (Yelas had been 9 1/2 points behind VanDam). VanDam is not fishing poorly -- in fact, he's fishing well by almost anyone's standards. He's just fishing worse than he has for several years.

> Kelly Jordon (now 4th) flip-flops with Gary Klein.

> Thanks in part to a 3rd at Hamilton, Mark Davis moves up one spot to 6th in the world.

> Second through 5th in the world and 7th (half of the Top 10) are from Texas. Two more are from Arkansas and one is from Oklahoma. Fishermen from that area of the country have been hot this year. One western pro -- Arizona's John Murray -- is in the Top 10. VanDam is from Michigan.

> A Top 20 finish at Hamilton helps Dustin Wilks climb from 15th into 12th.

> Hamilton winner Ron Shuffield jumps from 39th to 21st.

> Jim Bitter continues to climb up the rankings, and cracks the Top 50 in 48th.
