2007 Toyota Moving Forward Award

The Toyota Moving Forward Award honors the Bassmaster Elite Series angler
who posts the greatest improvement from season to season based on the
Bassmaster Angler of the Year points standings. The winning angler
receives $10,000.

In 2003, the first year the award was given, Takahiro Omori jumped 98
places to finish 40th overall. Omori cemented his comeback by winning
bass fishing's world championship, the 2004 Bassmaster Classic, at
Lake Wylie, N.C.

In 2005, Gary Yamamoto of Texas took the title when he finished 36th out
of 158 BASS anglers, moving up 115 places from his 151st-place finish in
2004.
