Brett Preuett enjoying Cayuga

Elite Series pro Brett Preuett is having a lot of fun on Cayuga this week. As the weights have indicated thus far, the fish are cooperating well. And Preuett is having the best event of his season.

Unfortunately he’s most likely out of contention for the Classic and the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year race, but that means he has nothing to lose.

And that makes him a dangerous man.

As of today, unofficially, he’s in 68th in AOY, but he’s currently in 21st for the tournament according to the latest BASSTrakk readouts. A solid performance for the young Louisiana pro.

If there is any shot at all to earn a spot in the AOY Championship, he’ll need to compliment his finish here with at least a Top 10 at Oklahoma’s Ft. Gibson Reservoir in September—the final regular-season event.

Moving his current AOY standing up to 50th or better will be required. It’s possible, but a tough climb to make at this point in the season.

But that’s the beauty of this sport, you just never know.
