While one or more anglers could assert themselves into the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year race here at the Alabama River, it’s certain that a few will take themselves out of the hunt with a poor performance. It’s been a strange season with some tough fishing and big turnarounds, but the AOY race remains a battle of attrition.

Here is my best knowledge of where boats are scattered. Report from the lockmaster 3 boats locked down river through Jones Bluff. Two boats are in Tallassee on the Tallapoosa, which by the way, is unheard of around here. Per our bloggers a good many boats below Jordan Dam and below Bouldin. Others scattered in between.
Shaw Grigsby is having a great midday on the Alabama River.
