AOY race tightening up

Based on the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year tabulated from the Day 2 standings, the AOY race will tighten significantly after this tournament. However, those points aren't officially tallied until the standings are final after Day 4, and Brent Chapman has a chance to improve his first-place lead today.

Chapman's lead was 29 points after the Sabine River. Based on the Day 2 standings, when Chapman was 49th, his margin would have decreased to only nine points over Bradley Roy, 11 points over Josh Bertrand and 13 points over Aaron Martens.

However, all that is in flux today. And Chapman has to improve significantly from 49th place. BASSTrakk shows him in 35th place at 9 a.m.
