J Todd Tucker on a good pace

On the subject of anglers who are due for a good tournament, J Todd Tucker is currently in 23rd place with 16 pounds, 8 ounces, according to BASSTrakk.

As we've stated many times on this blog, BASSTrakk is very much unofficial. But if that's correct, it would be Tucker's biggest single-day catch of the year and could set the stage for his best finish in a while.

Tucker's last Top 20 finish came in 2012, though he did earn a check earlier this year at Winyah Bay for finishing 40th. He came into the Cayuga Lake event ranked 103rd in the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year standings.
