Rankings

The importance of an accurate, standard, and very public ranking system for the competitive redfish teams of the country cannot be overstated. Thus, the introduction of the National Redfish League and RWS National Ranking System.

To accumulate points teams must remain intact. (Example: A + B fish together and A also fishes with C. This would constitute two teams – AB and AC – even though one of the members is the same. So, Team AB could accumulate points and Team AC could accumulate points, but Angler A would not be able to combine points from both team’s efforts.

The RWS National Ranking System will recognize three 2020 Tour Divisions. The number of qualifying teams from each division* is listed in parentheses beside the Divisions below.  Each Qualifying Team will earn an invitation to the 2021 RWS.
