Matt Allen Ranked 5th for California's Top 40 Bass Anglers

With the temperatures dropping and bass in the fall transition, there are a couple things I look forward to this time of year. Great bass fishing, and “The List.” For those of you that don’t know what “List” I’m talking about, annually, outdoor writer George Kramer’s publishes his list of California’s Top 40 Bass Anglers. This year is extra exciting. It is the 20th anniversary of the list, and it’s the last. Tacticalbassin’s own Matt Allen not only made the list for the 6th consecutive time, but he is in the TOP 5! Matt landed in 5th place this year and is the highest ranked non-touring pro. Now that Matt is guiding ( I don’t get to fish with him as much, but I’ll be the first to say he truly deserves it. Every time we fish together, or film our next video for, I learn something. The great thing that sets Matt apart from the other “Pros” is his desire to teach. Putting many clients on their personal best bass and straight up crushing giants himself, 2014 has been an unforgettable year. With 72 Largemouth over 7lbs, and 26 Spotted bass over 7lbs to date (11/13/2014), THIS YEAR, nobody can argue his rank! Congratulations to all the anglers that made “The List.” You can see the entire list on Kramer's Blog.
