Whitaker on the board

The Bassmaster Angler of the Year race is now very much watching on a daily basis, as the season gets closer to the final event. Normally, every lost fish can be costly. The less-than-desirable fall fishing could be another factor making some anglers nervous.

Jake Whitaker is 18th in the AOY standings, but he's struggling on Lake Guntersville. That's not very fair to say, as most everyone else is, too.

Whitaker finally broke the ice with this keeper caught at 10:15 a.m.
