Every west coast angler should know about "The List" by now. If you dont, you need to check it out. "The List" is a top 40 fishermen of California list created annually by outdoor writer George Kramer. The list has been pretty controversial over the years with anglers that were said to have been placed "too high" on the list or were "undeserving", as well as anglers toward the bottom of the list being "underrated". This always gives us California bass fishermen something to talk about every November (as if we don't have enough drama in this fishing world).
This year, our very own Matt Allen has made the top 10 on "The List" for the first time. Matt has been on the list a few times already, but this is the first year he has cracked the top 10. I wanted to congratulate Matt, as we all know that he has put in countless hours on the water and spent more time than most of us can possibly imagine coming up with new ideas to completely dominate Northern California as "The" trophy guy. You've earned it Matt, Congratulations on your first top 10!
