ESCANABA, Mich. — The weather forecast for this area of Lake Michigan called for southerly winds to gradually build to 20-miles-per-hour as Friday progressed. So BASS tournament director Trip Weldon initially made the call for a shortened day, with a 1:30 p.m. check-in time instead of 3:45 p.m. on Day 2 of the Bassmaster Elite Series Toyota Angler of the Year Championship.

Yes, it's true that we're one-third of the way through the AOY Championship, but remarkably little has changed in the way of the AOY race. Greg Hackney still leads. Todd Faircloth and Aaron Martens have switched spots in the standings, but they still trail Hackney, and Hackney still controls his own destiny. If he can move into 15th place or better — just two rungs up the ladder from where he is after Day 1 — no one can catch him. He'll be the 2014 Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year.
