2012 Elite Series Douglas Lake Challenge Douglas Lake - Dandridge, TN, May 3 - 6, 2012

Myers having a breakout year

It's great to see Britt Myers having such a strong year. He's been fishing the Elite Series since its inception, but his best AOY finish to date was 56th in 2007. This year, however, he's been on a roller coaster ride that's been more thrills than chills. He started the season at the St. Johns River by finishing dead last! Not only is that disappointing, but it's almost fatal to an angler's chances for getting a Classic berth under the new AOY scoring system ... or so I thought. Since that disaster at the St. Johns, Myers has been amazing. He was 16th at Okeechobee, second at Bull Shoals and is now on the verge of winning at Douglas. That's turning things around in a big way! A win here will be huge for him. Apart from the payday, the recognition and the AOY points, he'll earn a spot in his first Bassmaster Classic. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Myers manages to smile even when things aren't going so good, but right now they couldn't be much better.
