Ott DeFoe has motored into the back of Possum Creek, where he started yesterday, and got on the scoreboard a lot quicker than he did on Day One. He landed a 1 1/2-pound largemouth at 8:10 a.m. Then he followed up with a 2-pounder at 8:17.
DeFoe entered Day Two in second place with 11 pounds, 3 ounces., almost 6 pounds better than Skeet Reese's fourth place total of 5-11. And that's what it's all about today — making the top four and advancing to the Evan Williams Bourbon All-Star Semi-Finals Saturday at Decatur Lake, where the previous two days' totals will be zeroed.
DeFoe, who won this event last year, won't need much more than he's already got now, if anything, to assure himself a spot tomorrow.
