So what do you know about Brent Chapman? I'll bet you didn't know this.

 

He's looking for his eighth Top 5 finish in Elite Series history. Only five anglers have more. Kevin VanDam leads the way with 18.

 

Chapman posted three consecutive Top 5 finishes earlier this year, grabbing the AOY lead before he stumbled at Douglas Lake, finishing 68th.

 

He finishes in the money in more than 70 percent of all Elite events — that's 10th-best overall.

 

He turns 40 in less than a month (July 6, to be exact).

 

Chapman has fished 11 Classics. His best finish was fifth place, and he did that back-to-back in 2010 and 2011.

 

He's finished in the Top 25 of the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year race six times. His best finish was eighth in 2007, but he has his sights set much higher this year.
