2012 Elite Series Toledo Bend Battle Toledo Bend Reservoir - Many, LA, Jun 7 - 10, 2012

Chapman staying put

12:35 pm CDT, Jun 10, 2012 | By Steve Wright

We had a brief discussion with Brent Chapman before James Overstreet and I headed for Cypress Bend Park. Chapman has a 2-pounder in his livewell that he'd like to cull out. Replacing it with a 3-pounder would give him an even 20 pounds.

 

Of course, he'd like to do better than that in the final hours today. Few other Elite Series anglers in the 12-man final could have maximized their fishing time more than Chapman today. He's burned very little gas and caught enough bass in his primary area to keep him from making a major move.

 

Chapman just motored back across the boat trail to the place where he caught that 6-pounder this morning.

 

"I'm going to stay here because this is where I caught my best fish today," Chapman said.
