Britt Myers has never led an Elite event before yesterday and his best ever finish came at the last Elite tournament on Bull Shoals when he was second behind Brandon Palaniuk.

Brent Chapman's bad lake could sink AOY hopes

May 5, 2012

Brent Chapman was running away with the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year race until he hit a brick wall at Douglas Lake and finished a very disappointing 68th. Luckily, he didn't fall far off the pace. If the season ended today, he'd be in third place behind Randy Howell and David Walker. If he can come back to win AOY this year, his Douglas Lake performance will be the worst ever by an angler in an AOY-winning season. The worst finish by an AOY to date was Michael Iaconelli's 66th-place finish among 102 anglers on Lake Champlain in 2006.
