I know there is more on the line at the last event of the 2017 #WTKF trail, but who else is pumped about the Angler of The Year race coming down to the last event of the year with the top two anglers pretty much controlling their own destiny. Don’t forget about the two TOC $200 gift cards and the one $100 TOC gift cards that will be handed out as well. I don’t think there is anybody out there that saw the AOY coming down to the last event after the commanding lead Shane Hunter started off with this year. Whoever wins the AOY title and the new Lure 11.5 presented by Happy Trails Outdoor Goods & More is definitely deserving of it. Take a look at what these anglers have done this year so far and tell me they wouldn’t have earned every bit of the title.
I know both of these anglers have had limited time (if any) on the bodies of water that are legal in the San Angelo Road Runner coming up on Jully 22nd, but I have no doubt they will both find fish. The question is who will be able to take the pressure when it is all on the line and turn in the biggest sack to claim the crown.
Here are the scenarios that could cause some fireworks and a possible fish off for the title of 2017 WTKF 2017 Champion.
Here are the scenarios that would cause a fish off for the AOY.
- Shane finishes 1st and Daniel finishes 2nd.
- Daniel finishes 3rd and Shane finishes 2nd or worse.
Here are the scenarios that would seal the deal for Shane.
- Neither angler finishes in the top 3 and points would remain the same or unchanged.
- Daniel Finishes 3rd or worse.
Here are the scenarios that Daniel would need to sneak by Shane.
- Daniel win 1st and its all his.
- Daniel finish 2nd and Shane does not win.
Also on the line at the 2017 San Angelo Road Runner are two paid TOC entry fees for the top two anglers of the year. One might think that these two guys above have it in the bags but don’t count out Layne Grant. He might think he is flying under the radar, but I see you down there. With a win he could bump Daniel down to third and a 2nd place finish would force a fish off for the $200 TOC entry fee prize.
Then we also have the $100 entry fee for the TOC that also includes 2 free nights at the Scenic 515 Cabins for the angler that finishes in the highest place, but is not in the top 5 in AOY race.
