Lookey there! Bryan Thrift has a dandy on day two!

1:21 p.m.: The current is flowing

It's on ... the current, that is. We just got an update from an OTW crewmember, and he says the flow has begun, and the pros are reacting. They're heading for their best offshore spots in hopes that the fish will slide back into brush piles and other types of cover.

Stand by. The action should pick up.

 

12:52 p.m.: Get ready, because the current is about to turn on

1 o'clock - That's the magic hour when the current is supposed to start flowing through Lake Eufaula. If things go as they did yesterday, the bite should turn on at about the same time as the current starts flowing.

Randy Haynes reported that his fish weren't positioned on the brush, stumps and other cover where he caught them yesterday. They're roaming. When the current flows, however, it could force those fish into the cover to get out of the flows and feed. That's what everyone's hoping for, at least.

 

11:05 a.m.: The lull is setting in

Action has slowed all across Lake Eufaula. Most of the updates coming in from FLW's OTW team are reporting small fish catches and pros still working on their limits. Clent Davis hasn't even had a bite since he caught that 6 1/2-pounder back before 9 a.m.

If the bite doesn't pick up this afternoon, we could see a pretty drastic change in the average daily weights. In fact, today seems to be playing out more like what pros expected yesterday, before Davis and company smashed 'em.

 

10:17 a.m.: Davis is secure at the top, but expect to see a shakeup

Avena, Colson, Haynes, Martin, Murphy - they're all battling through slow mornings. Jeff Gustafson did catch a 4-pounder, but he's looking for more fish to go with it. And we haven't heard much from Derrick Snavely yet. We'll see what we can dig up on him.

Zack Birge and Troy Morrow have limits, but neither has much weight in the box yet.

What's it all mean? Simple: Clent Davis is way ahead of the pack. He has 16 to 17 pounds with plenty of time to upgrade. Could the local boy win it this week? Log on at 3 p.m. CT to watch FLW Live and see if he can hold the lead going into the weekend.

 

9:40 a.m.: Anglers are on the move

The local gas stations will be happy tonight becuase the 149 Tour boats on Lake Eufaula are being run pretty hard today. Pros are hopping from spot to spot, running from one end of the lake to the other, and generally just covering a lot of water.

Clent Davis is still in command, but he hasn't upgraded since catching that 6 1/2-pounder. Our OTW reporter who's with Davis says the 6 1/2-pound estimate is a conservative estimate. It might be closer to 7 pounds. Interestingly, Davis isn't covering as much water as other pros. He's spent most of the morning on just two spots.

 

8:53 a.m.: Clent Davis is way in front

He caught a "low teens" limit early this morning, but now Clent Davis is putting the hammer down. He just traded out a 2-pounder for a hawg 6 1/2-pounder. We estimate his weight at 16 to 17 pounds, and he's still got so much time left to fish. If he can get one more upgrade and reach the 20-pound mark, he'll likely take the lead into the weekend.

 

8:38 a.m.: Waiting for the bite to turn on

We've heard a few reports of big fish being caught - and lost - by top pros. Shad Schenck lost a giant, and Troy Morrow did as well. Jeff Gustafson landed a 4-pounder a few minutes ago. All their bites came within a 10-minute window.

Other than that, it's primarily a small-fish fest out on Eufaula right now. This time yesterday there was a lull in the action too, as the shad spawn bite shut down and pros repositioned to their midday areas. That's pretty much what's happening now. Boats are running in every direction all over Eufaula.

Don't think that anyone's worried, though. Many pros reported that the bite has been better in the afternoon anyway. There's plenty of time to drum up a few hawgs.

 

8:05 a.m.: Slow start for many, but Clent Davis is piecing it together

Adrian Avena, Troy Morrow and Randy Haynes are off to slow starts this morning, as are several other top-20 anglers that we've heard from. Tournament leader Clent Davis is having a pretty strong morning though. He has a limit for about 12 pounds already. Alleviating the pressure of catching a limit early should allow Davis to fish relaxed, confident and free, which could spell bad news for his competition.

Most pros we've checked with are sampling the shad spawn bite, but only when a good spawning spot fits into their rotation. The run-and-gun offshore game and shallow patterns are still holding up for the rest.

 

7:10 a.m.: Moving day begins on Lake Eufaula

After day one, the 20th-place cutoff on Lake Eufaula is 14 pounds, 9 ounces, but another 27 anglers are within 3 pounds of that mark. And just about everyone in the top 60 could put together a big enough limit today to make the top-20 cut. That means it's moving day, as pros fight to fish another day.

Currently at Eufaula are warm, overcast conditions with a steady breeze. The shad spawn bite might linger a little longer today thanks to the morning haze, and that's a good way to piece together a big limit in the morning.

Overall, however, the bigger limits yesterday were primarily caught on brush piles and other isolated pieces of cover out away from the banks. That bite was steady throughout the day, but it picks up when the current is flowing. We'll get an update on the flows and keep you posted throughout the day.

Gross Grabs Toho Lead

Day three of the FLW Tour presented by Ranger Boats on Lake Toho was tough on the leaders, but Buddy Gross stayed steady, rising to first from fifth with 19 pounds, 12 ounces. In total, Gross has amassed 62 pounds even through three days, which is just about a pound ahead of Darrell Davis, who caught 25-12 for a 60-15 total and rocketed up to second from 13th. Going into the final day, everyone in the top six is within 5 pounds of the lead, and the way the Kissimmee Chain is pumping out big ones, that counts as the slimmest of margins. READ MORE »
