A battle of attrition

While one or more anglers could assert themselves into the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year race here at the Alabama River, it’s certain that a few will take themselves out of the hunt with a poor performance. It’s been a strange season with some tough fishing and big turnarounds, but the AOY race remains a battle of attrition.


If you see one of the AOY leaders fall flat on the river this week, finishing around 70th or worse, it’s a pretty good bet that they’ve taken themselves out of the race for this season. It’s that competitive and that uncompromising.
