Lake Champlain and Lake St. Clair were the last two regular season events for the 2017 Bassmaster Elite Series.
Davy Hite and Ronnie Moore break down the Toyota Angler of the Year race with just one regular season event left, plus the AOY Championship. Brandon Palaniuk has pulled out to a 40-point lead over Jacob Wheeler and Casey Ashley.
Aaron Martens completed a historic comeback as the Top 51 fished the final day and he rose from 19th to win on Lake Champlain. The Elite Series event was shortened to three days after high wins forced a cancellation of Day 1.
The final day of Bassmaster LIVE had numerous big moments and fish catches on Lake Champlain as the standings were neck and neck.
Jacob Wheeler caught a smallmouth that was almost 5 pounds as he made a big upgrade.
Brandon Lester filled his limit with good smallmouth and then looked for a big largemouth bite. This wasn't the giant he needed, but he looked for a cull using a different pattern.
Brandon Coulter rallied after a tough Day 1 and made the Top 51 cut, in part, because of this fish.
Jacob Wheeler hooked up with numerous fish and filled his limit in a span of a few minutes on the final day at Lake Champlain.
Matt Lee started fast and put three fish in the boat quick.
Brandon Lester loaded the boat with a quick limit and these were the two best fish of his morning limit.
