Ott DeFoe doesn’t like to talk about his chances of winning Toyota Angler of the Year. That’s understandable. The season is at the turning point and there is much work to be done.
One thing DeFoe can talk about. That’s his tournament earning this season. DeFoe is now the only Elite Series angler to earn a check at every event this season. Jason Christie and Todd Faircloth both missed the first cut at Dardanelle, ending their continuous run of checks this season.
On the dark side, there are four anglers who’ve yet to cash a check this season. They are Jay Brainard, John Hunter Jr., Koby Krieger and Gerald Spohrer.
