Kansan Brent Chapman slips to 13th from 10th
State Farm 2005 BassFan.com World Rankings
Hackney Back at the Top

May 15, 2005

Highlights this week:

> Greg Hackney displaces Marty Stone as the No. 1 angler in the world.

> Pennsylvania's Dave Wolak widens his lead in the ROY Race; Florida's Bobby Lane drops to 3rd.

After last week's FLW Tour event on Alabama's Wheeler Lake, Greg Hackney once again takes over as the No. 1-ranked angler in the world.

In the last edition of the State Farm World Rankings, Hackney had only been a little over 2 World Rankings points behind former No. 1 angler Marty Stone. But a 4th at Wheeler Hackney's third Top 5 in four events and his fourth Top 20 in five events puts him almost 7 points ahead of Stone, who is now 2nd in the world.

To remain the No. 1 angler in the world through the end of the season, Hackney will have to perform well at four more events: the one remaining regular-season FLW Tour event (on the Potomac River in June), and the three championships in July and August: the FLW Tour Championship in mid-July, the Bassmaster Classic in late July and the Cabela's Top Gun Championship in mid-August.

Stone will have two shots to get the No. 1 position back: the Classic and Top Gun. But he also has Skeet Reese, Kevin VanDam and Aaron Martens who remain 3rd, 4th and 5th in the world, respectively behind him.

Other notable movement:

> A 35th at Wheeler helps Takahiro Omori move back into the Top 10 at 10th.

> Mike Iaconelli finally got out of his cycle this year of good BASS finishes and horrible FLW ones. This week he climbs nine slots to 12th in the world.

> A 17th at Wheeler helps South Carolina's Anthony Gagliardi, who is having a good year, also climb nine slots to 18th in the world.

> A 21st at Wheeler helps Pennsylvania's Dave Lefebre move up eight spots to 20th in the world.

> Wheeler winner Alvin Shaw jumps 34 spots to 30th in the world.

> A 7th at Wheeler helps Michigan's Chad Grigsby jump 35 spots to 34th in the world.

> A 5th at Wheeler is Toshinari Namiki's third Top 5 in three events, including a win at the Ouachita River FLW. This week he jumps way up (37 spots) to 44th in the world.

> Indiana's Chip Harrison Jr. also has quietly been fishing well this year. A 9th at Wheeler helps him leap 39 slots to 49th in the world.
