So far, a 4-pounder today is like a 5-pounder yesterday. In other words, it's big. And Drew Benton has two of them now, giving him an estimated 14 1/2 pounds.
Benton is flying under the radar in the AOY race. He moved up to 9th after the St. Lawrence River with his 17th-place finish there. He made a big jump yesterday, going from 50th place to 28th with a 19-pound bag.
