One of the races taking place on the water today, is quietly changing up in the back ground this morning.
Patrick Walters leads the Toyota Angler of the Year race and has for several weeks. After Day 2, it appeared as if Drew Cook might be challenging Walters. Both obviously have their sights on that title.
Friday, Cook had cut the difference in the points to 6, which in these events is just ounces at times.
Today, though, Cook is losing some ground. He’s dropped from 2nd to 11th while Walters has risen from 25th to 19th. That’s a net gain of 19 points at the moment for Walters. Of course that could change with a fish catch or two. But it does illustrate how tightly contested the AOY race is every minute of the season.
