BASS PRESS RELEASE
|Canterbury rebounds and take AOY lead.|
Then Canterbury was thrown a curveball when the final regular-season Elite Series event was moved from Oklahoma’s Fort Gibson Lake to Lake Tenkiller, which was virtually unknown to the entire 75-angler Elite Series field. He struggled at times on Tenkiller, but managed a 19th-place finish that allowed him to maintain the AOY lead.
Electronics issues Sunday were his latest hurdle, but he’s still on top — thanks to the big smallmouth bass at St. Clair and lots of patience.
“I’m not getting a lot of bites,” said Canterbury, who quipped that he caught his best fish between takeoff and 3:30 p.m. “It’s not like it has been before when I’ve been here in June and you’re around a whole bunch of big ones.
“I’m having to move around a bunch and catch one here and one there.”
