It's difficult to make any kind of an educated guess about what today's 35th-place/Day 2 cut weight will be. There was a two-way tie on Day 1 for 35th place between Ed Loughran III and Jeff Gustafson with 8 pounds even. Based on what's been visible on "Bassmaster LIVE" and the ever-changing weather, which now includes patches of blue sky, it seems tougher than yesterday.
So my uneducated guess is 15 pounds. And the biggest question of all in the Toyota Angler of the Year race is this: Will leader Scott Canterbury make the cut today? Canterbury has finished no lower than 22nd place in only one tournament this season, when he was 49th at Lake Fork.
