Top 10 cutline prediction: 61 pounds

This week's Elite Series tournament has fished strikingly similar to the 2017 event on the St. Lawrence River. That tournament two years ago provided a fairly accurate gauge for the Top 35 cut yesterday. In 2017, 35th place after two days was 36-3; yesterday it was 36-14.

In 2017, 10th place after three days was 60-8. So the semi-educated guess on 10th place today should be somewhere in that neighborhood. Let's say 61 pounds.
