If the Elite season ended after Day Three of the Bull Shoals event, your Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year would be ... wait for it ... drum roll please ... Brent Chapman, in a landslide! Chapman would have 285 points on the strength of three consecutive top six finishes. The runner-up would be Randy Howell with 263. Skeet Reese would be 6th and Kevin VanDam 7th.
And if the Elite season had ended after Day Two at Bull Shoals, the Bassmaster Rookie of the Year would be Brandon Card, who would rank 9th in the AOY race with 220 points.
