Some superstars struggling in 2012

As good as things have been for Brent Chapman this year, they've been equally tough for some perennial Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year challengers. Denny Brauer, the 1987 AOY —who always seems to struggle in Florida —is currently 85th. Davy Hite, the 1997 and 2002 AOY, is 83rd. Aaron Martens, the 2005 AOY, is 80th, and Tim Horton (2000 AOY) is 70th. Whether they're concerned or not, it's not early in the season anymore, and they're going to need to mount a comeback sooner rather than later if they want to fish the 2012 Bassmaster Classic.
