STATE FARM BassFan.com World Rankings

Notable items:

> Kevin VanDam is once again comfortably in the No. 1 slot after a 4th-place finish at Wheeler. That was his third Top 10 finish in a row, and second Top 10 finish out of the last three. He continues to outfish his peers, and for an amazing third straight year will be the No. 1-ranked angler heading into the BASSMASTERS Classic.

> Alton Jones and Jay Yelas sat out the Wheeler event and paid the price in the rankings. Kelly Jordon, who had been ranked 4th, gained on his fellow Texans and Skeeter/Yamaha pros. While Jones missed the last two FLW events and Yelas finished low at Kentucky Lake and didn't fish Wheeler, Jordon finished about 100 places higher than Yelas at Kentucky Lake and was 17th at Wheeler. In part because of that, he moves past Yelas in the rankings into 3rd and is a mere point behind Jones, in 2nd.

> Gary Klein, who has been alternating bad finishes with Top 20 finishes, hangs on to 5th.

> Thanks in part to a 2nd at Wheeler, Tim Horton moves back into the Top 10 in 7th (he had been 16th).

> Tommy Biffle finished 10th at Wheeler and also climbs back into the Top 10, in 9th (he was 15th).

> FLW Angler of the Year Dan Morehead didn't fish well at Wheeler, but moves up 8 spots to 17th.

> Wheeler winner Aaron Martens climbs from 39th to 21st.
