The Douglas Lake Challenge results shook up the leaderboard in the 2012 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year race. With his fifth-place finish Sunday, Howell earned enough points to take over. He now sits 26 points ahead of David Walker of Sevierville, Tenn., who moved up one tick into second place. Former points leader Brent Chapman slipped to third.
Rookie Brandon Card of Caryville, Tenn., continued his climb up the points ladder. He not only remained the clear leader in the Bassmaster Rookie of the Year contest, he shot from 11th into fourth place in the overall points race, a remarkable accomplishment for a first-year Elite pro.
