Brent Chapman has moved back into the lead with a total of 16-12, according to the latest BASSTrakk figures. While that weight is completely unofficial, there's some confidence in the number here, based on Chapman's consistency all season long in estimating his weights for his Marshal to input.
If it holds up, Chapman will be the man of the hour at this afternoon's Oneida Shores Park weigh-in, which begins at 4 p.m. ET.
As Ott DeFoe said yesterday, in summing up the AOY race, "We've all got pressure on us, but (Chapman) definitely has got the most. It's his to lose."
It appears the 40-year-old Chapman is taking a giant step toward capping the best season of his professional bass fishing career.
