Where will the cut line be?

Since the weights last week at the St. Lawrence River and this week at Lake Champlain have been so comparable, it's worth a look to see where the Top 51 cut line might be after today's weigh-in.

At the St. Lawrence, 51st place on Day 1 was 17-10. Double that and you get 35-4. The actual cut weight ended up being slightly less - 34-13.

Yesterday here, 51st place was 16-9. Double that and you get 33-2. It looks like it will take an average of 16 1/2 pounds a day to make the cut at Lake Champlain. No one would have predicted that before this tournament started.
