I said yesterday in my blog that I thought this tournament was going to come down to consistency, and that 14 to 15 pounds a day would walk away with it. Hopefully that's true, because I caught 14 1/2 pounds yesterday and almost 15 pounds today, so hopefully I can keep catching them.
I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. I have two hard days of fishing ahead of me and I just need to keep running the same gameplan.
There are some opportunities out there, and I had the potential today to catch a 17- or 18-pound bag, but I lost a really big fish. That happens. I'll just keep chipping away at it.

I'm in 6th place after the first of 4 days at the Lake Lanier Forrest Wood Cup in Georgia. But the standings differential is a lot tighter than the weight differential, because I'm 7 1/2 pounds behind the leader Jacob Wheeler, and that's a monstrous lead on this lake. My goal is still to become the first back-to-back Forrest Wood Cup champion in history, and I certainly don't expect Jacob to catch 22 pounds each of the next 3 days, so I just hope I can keep catching good bags and chip away at his lead.
Jacob's big weight is sort of like my big day 1 last year at Ouachita, and just like when I won, this year's going to boil down to who can be consistent and keep catching some big bags. I really do think consistency is going to make a big difference. I could catch 20...
