Brent Chapman is probably one bass away from, as he said yesterday, "a life-changing event," which is the AOY title. But Chapman has been stuck on a total of four fish for several hours now. And you can't help but recall something else he said yesterday: "I culled my sixth fish [of the day] at 10 o'clock and I never caught another fish. That's got me a little nervous." No one can imagine the pressure that Chapman will be under for the rest of the day.
