Bass Fan Rookie of the Year Update


Wednesday May 28, 2003 -The first question in the BassFan Rookie of the Year Race was which Reynolds was going to come out ahead at the final BASSMASTER Tour event. That is now settled: California's Mike Reynolds had a better finish at the Alabama River BASSMASTER than Oklahoma's Jeff Reynolds, and is the best B.A.S.S. rookie this year. (Arizona's Mark Kile, who won B.A.S.S. rookie of the year this year, isn't in the BassFan race because he's not a "true rookie" as he previously fished a FLW Tour event.)

The second question – who will be the 2003 BassFan Rookie of the Year – is still undecided. The only person who can catch Reynolds is FLW rookie Matt Herren. He needs a high finish to do it, which will be harder because the FLW Tour fishes a full field (175 pros) vs. B.A.S.S.'s 50-man field in the last two events. In Herren's favor is that the next FLW event is at Lake Wheeler -- in Alabama, where Herren is from. Whether that makes a difference remains to be seen.
