Seth Feider came into Neely Henry Lake with a 4-point lead over Patrick Walters in the Angler of the Year race. Walters just missed the Day 2 cut, by 3 ounces, and Feider finished 12th yesterday. With their results final, Feider now officially has a 41-point lead over Walters, who remains in second place. Two of the top five AOY contenders are competing today, Brock Mosley and Jason Christie, so their points aren’t final. Based on the Day 3 standings, here is how the top five AOY contenders stack up:
Angler Pts. Margin
Seth Feider 525 ——
Patrick Walters 484 - 41
Brock Mosley 464 - 61 (Based on 8th place after Day 3)
Brandon Palaniuk 462 - 63
Jason Christie 456 - 69 (Based on 5th place after Day 3)
There are three tournaments left in the 2021 Elite Series – Lake Guntersville, Lake Champlain and the St. Lawrence River. Feider would undoubtedly take his results from a year ago at those three events, when he was 11th at Guntersville, 2nd at Champlain and 18th at the St. Lawrence River.
