For Greg Hackney, like the other competitors in the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Championship, Day 2 on Bays de Noc will be all about the numbers.

ESCANABA, Mich. — Greg Hackney had numbers in mind while thinking about what it would take for him to win the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year title this week at Lake Michigan.

Those numbers were 20 and 18, in that order.

“I thought if I caught 20 pounds the first day and backed it up with 18 or 19, I’d be alright,” said Hackney about his game plan for clinching the coveted AOY title.

After Day 1, the number 18 made him breathe a sigh of relief. That was his five-bass total weight Thursday, exactly.

“They actually weighed about two pounds heavier than what I thought I had,” Hackney said. “That helped my feelings a little bit when I weighed in. (Friday) I’ve got to catch 20.”

Todd Faircloth’s number Thursday was 20 pounds, 15 ounces. That allowed him to cut into Hackney’s lead in the AOY race.

Faircloth was in third place, 17 points behind. Now he’s in second place, 10 points back.
