If there's one particular circumstance that favors Tommy Biffle, it's rapidly rising, off-color water. Biffle's one of the storied kings of the big stick, and he proved it today at the Wheeler Bassmaster Elite Series in Alabama when he walloped nearly 20 pounds after the water rose 18 inches to 2 feet over the past day and a half.

The catch moved Biffle up from 6th into the lead spot, where he enjoys a 2-07 advantage over 2nd-place Takahiro Omori.

Omori caught about what he did on day 1 (16-01 today vs. 17-08) to retain the 2nd-place position. Notable about Omori is that he's not catching numbers, and caught just six keepers today.

Bradley Hallman made a big move today. He began the day in 28th, caught 17-13 and rocketed up to 3rd. Hallman finished 2nd by 1 ounce last year at the Wheeler

Eastern FLW Series, which was held in late March. A culling error cost him the win there. He's doing exactly what he did at that event – fishing docks in a backwater – but burned through all his water today and isn't sure whether his spots will replenish overnight.

Mark Tucker was another who made a huge move. Tucker sacked an 18-07 limit today, which pushed him up from 45th to 4th.

Mike Iaconelli brought in 12-12 today – about 4 pounds lighter than his day-1 weight – and slipped one spot to 5th.

Todd Faircloth climbed a few spots with his second consecutive 14-plus-pound bag and is now 6th.

The giant wildcard right now is the cut. Typically after a cancellation, the Top 12 fish the final day. But in a break from tradition, BASS will launch the Top 50 tomorrow, with the Top 12 perhaps to fish Monday.

Monday's weather forecast, however, calls for potentially scary conditions – the same conditions that caused the day-2 cancellation (heavy west winds pushing against a heavy east-flowing current). BASS said it will decide tomorrow whether to end the event after tomorrow's weigh-in, or retain the Top 12 anglers to fish Monday.

The tournament could therefore be decided tomorrow. BASS will reportedly put cameras on the Top 6 boats in order to prepare footage for The Bassmasters TV show.

Several pros noted their frustration with the lack of consistency regarding the cut. Last week at Dardanelle, for example, day 3 was cancelled. Only the Top 12 fished the final day. This week, BASS retained the full field on day 3, and is unsure for now about how or when the event will end.

Hallman, for one, reserved judgment on the cut process, but did note he purposely burned through all of his water today thinking he had to make the Top 12 to fish tomorrow.

And regarding the current Top 12, here's a look. Total weight is followed by distance from leader in red.

1. Tommy Biffle: 36-00
2. Takahiro Omori: 33-09 (2-07)
3. Bradley Hallman: 30-14 (5-02)
4. Mark Tucker: 30-00 (6-00)
5. Mike Iaconelli: 29-13 (6-03)
6. Todd Faircloth: 29-13 (6-03)
7. Rick Morris: 28-12 (7-04)
8. Edwin Evers: 28-12 (7-04)
9. Randy Howell: 28-04 (7-12)
10. Gary Klein: 28-03 (7-13)
11. Stephen Browning: 27-15 (8-01)
12. Mark Menendez: 27-01 (8-15)

Along with Hallman and Tucker, others who moved into the Top 12 today include: Edwin Evers (25th to 8th), Gary Klein (16th to 10th) and Stephen Browning (41st to 11th). Browning's currently 3rd in the BASS Angler of the Year (AOY) race and he certainly helped avert what could have been a substantial dip in his standing. Note too that points leader Kevin VanDam is currently 49th.

The following pros (in addition to Jones) fell out of the Top 12 today: Skeet Reese (8th to 45th), Jason Williamson (9th to 27th), Tim Horton (10th to 31st) and Ish Monroe (10th to 41st).

Biffle's bag didn't include a 5-pounder – he lost a fish of that quality at the boat, and also broke off another big one that wrapped him.

If the event does end tomorrow, it would be difficult to pick against Biffle. Again, these conditions are tailor-made for his style. The fish are wanting to spawn, and the rising water gives them a perfect opportunity to move shallow into the cover.

But if the event does stretch to Monday, that would likely hurt Biffle as it would give the other pros at least 1 more day to learn the bite and chip away at his lead.

Biffle Understands The Opportunity

When asked how often such an opportunity presents itself – to be in the lead with rising, off-color water during the spawn – Biffle said: "Not very often. Not very often at all. And not nearly often enough."

He added that he had "no idea" such circumstances would develop, since the water was dropping rapidly during practice.

"I could only hope that it would (rise)," he said. "When I saw the water this morning, I knew I was going to catch them. I was furious yesterday when they called it off, because I could have caught them yesterday too. Before when we'd been here and the water got up, it wasn't the right time for it to be up, and then it would be down the next day. I was afraid that was going to happen this time – that I'd get there and it would be high and dry.

"But I don't think they're going to sink it down – it's too close to the time for it to be up (for summer pool)."

He didn't weigh any giants today. His bag was more about consistent quality. His biggest was 4-plus, and he said he caught more than 30 keepers. He did, however, lose a 5-pounder at the boat, and he broke off another fish that wrapped him in wood.

About whether he thinks the event should stretch to Monday, he said: "No, it ought to end tomorrow. The only reason for that is not because I'm leading, but because they've never gone to Monday for the whole career I've been fishing.

"And it should have been 50 (fishing) today, just for the fact that at Dardanelle, they cut it to 3 days didn't let the 50 fish. I was in 35th and probably could have moved way up in the points. (He's currently 38th in the points.–Ed..) They need to get their act together and do everything the same all the time, because it's real unfair. It's nothing but for TV. It's nothing like it used to be."

2nd: Omori Lost Lower Unit

Omori's story has been consistency. He weighed 17-08 on day 1, then 16-01 today, and sits well within reach of Biffle.

Omori noted that, like day 1 when nearly all his weight came from a brief flurry before a storm hit, he didn't catch a lot of keepers today either. In fact, he only caught six keepers.

Takahiro Omori isn't catching a lot of fish, but is catching the right ones.

"I think I made a good adjustment today," he noted. "I moved shallow. The water came (up) a bunch. Some places were muddy, but most of my stuff was just the same water-color wise."

He had his weight at 1:00, and while en route to a new area, struck a submerged object. That wrecked his lower unit and Jared Lintner ran him in to weigh-in. Omori said the Yamaha technicians will have him up and running for tomorrow.

He's not going to think about the cut, he added. He just wants to fish.

About whether or not he thinks he can win, he said: "Right now, I don't know. I talked to Tommy (Biffle), and this is his kind of fishing. (I'll) just keep an open mind (and) just try to make some good adjustments. Whatever happens, I'll do the best I can."

3rd: Hallman Burned His Stuff

It's no coincidence that two Oklahomans – Biffle and Hallman – are the Top 3. The state's known for rapidly rising, off-color water.

In Hallman's case, he caught nearly 18 pounds and moved up from 18th to 3rd, where he trails Biffle by 5 pounds.

"It feels good," Hallman said. "I was really working hard. I thought they were going to cut to the Top 12 today, and I put myself in a hole the first day. So I really ran everything that I possibly thought had big fish in it today.

"If it ends up that we fish Monday, I should have probably spent time looking for something new," he added. "But I'm really excited. It was a long day. It wasn't like I was catching the fire out of them like everybody else was, though. I started out with 8 or 9 pounds and then it was just cull and cull and cull and if you get lucky you get a good bite."

He fished mid-lake today, just like he did last year at the Series when he finished 2nd, and also ran 30 miles up the river. "I'm running a pattern for pre-spawn fish that works in this lake at this time of year."

About whether or not he thinks he can win, he said: "I don't know. I'm not even going to think about it. I'll just go fish for that next bite all day long, keep my head down, and try to stay in a high-percentage area with big fish. I have some areas that have big fish. It's just whether I can get the big bites.

Bradley Hallman thought BASS would cut to the Top 12 today, so he burned through everything he had.

"I don't have anything I haven't gone through," he added. "I'll just go through everything again tomorrow and hope it reloads. I don't know that it will. It did last year. It's the right time of year, so it could.

4th: Tucker Relieved

Tucker saw 25-pound bags the first 2 days of practice, but because of the weather, he fished something different on day 1 and put up a so-so 11-09. But he got back to business today, slammed 18-07, and moved up to 4th where he trails Biffle by 6 pounds even.

"I'm relieved," Tucker said. "I really messed up the first day. The weather conditions threw me off a little bit. But today it got back to kind of what it was the first day of practice and it worked out pretty good.

"I spent a little too much time in a couple areas though. I think I could have upgraded if I moved on. But the main thing was I was just trying to make the cut. I figured if I was catching them, everybody else was whacking them too. There I go to thinking again. Sometimes you outthink yourself."

He noted he's doing "something a lot of guys are not doing," and he's catching them the way "he likes to catch them" in the mornings. Then he's changing to something different. He likes the confidence of having a limit in the box early, which is why he's using that one-two strategy.

Regarding his thoughts on BASS's cut decisions thus far, he said: "It's silly. I mean, ever since I've been fishing these tournaments, we've always sent the Top 50 home with a check and fished the Top 12 (on the final day). I don't understand why there's confusion right now. I'd much rather have the Top 12 fish tomorrow.

"Yes, I'm in (the Top 12), but why give someone else another day when we didn't get that opportunity at Dardanelle last week. I was sitting in a position last week where I could have made up some ground, but then they cut to the Top 12. It's really aggravating that they're toying at it like this and making it up as they go. It's not right."

6th: Faircloth Happy

Todd Faircloth's 14-14 limit was 1 ounce less than what he weighed yesterday, and he moved up six spots to 6th.

"I'm real tickled with it," he said. "I've gotten lucky and caught a big one both days, and that's what's made the difference for me."

He "completely changed up" today, he noted, and caught every fish from spots that had been high and dry on day 1.

"It's definitely changing out there, but it's a lot of fun. I caught a lot of fish, and ran around and fished different water. Who knows, maybe tomorrow I'll pull up on a stretch and catch a big sack."

His biggest today was a 5-09, and he trails Biffle by 6-03.

About whether or not he thinks he can win, Faircloth said: "I definitely would have to have a really good day and (Biffle) would need to stub his toe. This is fishing, and anything can happen, but this is playing right into Biffle's hands. He's one of the best in rising-water conditions, and when he's flipping, he's in his comfort zone. Unless they pull the plug on the lake, he's going to be pretty stout."

Additional Notes

11th: Stephen Browning
(Browning weighed 16-04 and improved from 41st to 11th.)
"I made good decisions today. It kind of got off to a rocky start this morning with some electronics problems, but I got them squared away and then just got real fortunate. I changed some things – made a bait change – in the same area I was fishing yesterday. I went from getting 20 to 25 bites (on day 1) to getting 12 to 15 bites today, but they definitely got bigger. And I do like the decision to allow 50 guys to fish tomorrow."

  • 16th: Alton Jones
    (Jones weighed 8-12 and fell from 1st to 16th.)
    "My primary area where I caught 17-12 on day 1 was blown-out red mud this morning. It was an unfishable type of mud. I don't really know if it'll settle out in time. Then finally, this afternoon, I found some fish, but obviously, I didn't have a big bite. But I did catch one about 3 1/2 late in the day. I won't move around as much tomorrow. I'll stay put a little more and see how it goes."

  • Boyd Duckett
    (Duckett weighed 4-11 and fell from 17th to 79th.)
    "I made a lot of bad decisions today. I went all over the lake trying to fish areas where I thought big fish would move shallow. I wasn't willing to get out on a point and catch a limit, so I stayed with it and stayed with it and flat ran out of time. I think it was the worst day of fishing I've had in 3 years. I broke lines, fish got off, I missed hooksets. It's devastating to your season. If you want to fish the post-season and have a shot at AOY, you can't have a day like that. You know it's happening, and you're aware of it. It's maddening. It was one of those days."
