See how the Elites fared in the championship tournament and the AOY points race!
Over nine events, Hackney out-practiced, out-strategized, out-fished and ultimately outlasted the other 107 Bassmaster Elite Series anglers who started the season.
A look behind the scenes as anglers prepare for the final weigh-in of 2014.

Dave Mercer and Trip Weldon give you the final day wrap up
After most of the day without any cell service, I'm finally back in range enough to check in and see how things are going. I was with Faircloth, who was fishing in Fairport, Mich., some 30 or more miles straight east of Escanaba and across Big Bay de Noc. Faircloth can see the boundary line of acceptable fishing water for this event.
On Thursday Greg Hackney caught 15 pounds on the area around No-See-Em Creek then headed back close to the takeoff area in search of a big fish. It's 2:20 now and we're surprised he's staying in this area. With a 4:00 weigh-in if he's going to make a move it needs to be soon. Greg has approximately 17 pounds in his livewell now.
Aaron Martens has been stuck on 3 fish weighing 10 pounds for awhile now. Contrary to predictions, the sunshine hasn't helped him. Martens has moved a few times in the last couple of hours, but managed only a couple of short fish.
