Oneida Picks

The Bassmaster Elite Series wraps up its "regular season" this week on New York's Lake Oneida. After that only the Top 12 Anglers will compete for four tournament days on four lakes for the chance to be the 2009 Bassmaster Elite Angler of the Year.

This event has some intrigue, because Classic births and automatic re-qualifications for next year are on the line. Here are my Top 5 picks for the tournament in no particular order:

Dean Rojas: He won last year, and he is right below the Classic cutoff. He's going to be fishing hard this week.

Aaron Martens: He said he is going to focus on largemouth, and he's now in 5th place. I'm sure he would like to move up a little closer to the top.

Timmy Horton: Now sitting just below the Classic cutoff. He has alot to lose, and should make a great effort this week.

Ish Monroe: Having a pretty horrible year. He's now in 80th in points. He doesn't have much to lose, so he'll be going for the win. Last year Rojas won with the frog, and Ish has the new Phat Frog, which these bass have never seen.

KVD: He's KVD, no explanation needed.
