There are times when a home-lake advantage evaporates. It often happens when conditions take a screwy turn and the fish disperse. Or when a community hole begins to dominate, and the local pros are locked out because they didn't start there.

But this week's Norman FLW Tour is set up perfectly for locals. The fish are just about to come up and spawn, and they're holding on traditional staging spots – isolated, deeper structure and cover elements that are difficult to map and plan for during 3 days of practice.

So it's not much of a surprise to see that three locals made the Top 5 cut today – leader Bryan Thrift, 3rd-place Andy Montgomery and 5th-place Brian Travis. The three cut their competitive teeth on Norman and surrounding lakes, and fished against each other

in buddy and regional events for years.

What is surprising, however, is the extent to which Thrift is dominating the event. He's running from staging spot to spot, and also hunting kicker largemouths. The strategy resulted in a 16-00 limit today. When added to his 16-09 bag yesterday and his 13-01 day-1 catch, he leads by a relatively massive 5-02.

It's "relatively massive" because events here are typically determined by ounces, not pounds. And his lead is so significant, the rest of the field has largely resigned itself to fishing for 2nd place.

There does remain the possibility that someone could haul in a big sight-sack tomorrow, if the fish suddenly move onto beds. Even then, 18-pound limits on Norman are extremely rare – Montgomery said in a lifetime of fishing Norman he's never caught one. And if Thrift can catch an 8-pound limit, he'd force 2nd-place Rusty Trancygier into needing a 13-pound bag.

Trancygier caught that today and yesterday, but Thrift has yet to weigh less than 13 pounds, so it would likely take a total implosion on his behalf to let this one slip away.

Trancygier, a sixth-year pro from Hahira, Ga., made his first-ever Tour cut today, and it's a big come-up from his 138th-place finish a few weeks ago at Table Rock.

"I don't really think I can change anything I've been doing," Trancygier said. "I caught 20 to 25 keepers today – I just never got a big bite. My co-angler had a 6 1/2-pounder in the first 30 minutes. If I could have gotten a big bite like that, I could have made it really interesting."

"I've been in 2 feet of water or less the whole time," Trancygier added, noting that he fished a Senko on Wednesday, but later switched to a spinnerbait and shallow-running crankbait under the clouds.

Montgomery, in general, is fishing differently than Thrift. Montgomery's working a jig and focusing on numbers. That pattern spit out 12 1/2 pounds today, which kept Montgomery in 3rd – the same spot he was in yesterday.

In 4th is California pro Rusty Salewske, who's smoking a crank in dirty water up in Mountain Creek. His trouble is lost fish – more specifically, lost big fish – something that's common with the technique. Still, he weighed 13 1/2 pounds today and rocketed up 13 spots to make the cut in 4th.

And former TBF National Champion Travis, in 5th, is the final pro who'll fish tomorrow. He's fishing like Thrift – running and gunning – and actually met the leader on the water at one point today. Travis began the day in 13th, but sacked 12-07 to make the cut.

Here's a look at the final five. Total weight is followed by distance from leader in red:

1. Bryan Thrift: 45-10
2. Rusty Trancygier: 40-08 (5-02)
3. Andy Montgomery: 38-15 (6-11)
4. Rusty Salewske: 36-03 (9-07)
5. Brian Travis: 35-06 (10-04)

Thrift says he's both nervous and excited – a feeling that's difficult to describe.

First out of the cut was Andy Morgan, who made a valiant comeback after a four-fish day yesterday – the result of mechanical trouble with a borrowed boat. He caught 13-02 today on docks and improved 15 spots, but finished 3 ounces short of 5th.

Salewske and Travis replaced Jason Christie and Greg Pugh, who both fell out of the cut today. Christie finished 17th and Pugh 12th.

Thrift Stoked

For Thrift, a win tomorrow would certainly cement his arrival inside the top tier of the sport. He's had several tickles with greatness in the past, including a runner-up finish at his first-ever Tour event – the Travis 2007 FLW Tour. And he's currently ranked 18th in the world, although he was ranked as high as 12th a few weeks ago. But pro bass angling is about winning, and so far, such a mark has eluded him.

"Right now, I'm hoping I can catch them tomorrow," he said. "I've never been in this situation before. I'm a little bit nervous.

"It would mean a lot to me to win," he added. "I've been close so many times. I've got a couple of 2nds already, and I'd love to win one this early in my career and get the confidence going that I can close the deal out."

He elaborated on his strategy: He's running and gunning until he boxes a quality limit, then he's slowing down and picking through an area in search of a big largemouth bite. He nailed a largemouth kicker every day so far and his bag today included a 4 1/2, buoyed by three 3s and a 2.

Rusty Trancygier's on a shallow bite, and he'll stick with it tomorrow.

Yet he remains wary of the chance that someone could whack a big sack tomorrow – especially Montgomery or Travis. "I'm good buddies with them both, and they know this lake better than anybody out there," he said. "Someone could definitely come in with a big bag tomorrow."

Rather than a spawning wave, he's most worried about someone catching 17 pounds of staging fish, because he doesn't think the fish are ready for a massive bank move yet.

About his post-weigh-in emotions today, he said: "I'm nervous and excited at the same time. I don't know how to explain it. There's really no explanation for it. This lake can mess with you bad – throw you a curveball. You're catching big fish everywhere, then the next day you're not. I don't know why, but it's weird like that sometimes."

3rd: Montgomery Realistic

"It feels good," Montgomery said once he was safely inside the cut. "I've made a cut every year, except last year I didn't. So it feels good to make one this year. But Bryan's figured out a little something different than me. I'm flipping docks with a jig, and I'm fishing a part of the lake that I catch more fish in. He's fishing water where the big ones live."

About whether or not he's got a shot to win, Montgomery said: "Bryan needs to have his alarm clock not go off – that's pretty much the only way anybody's going to catch him. He's going to have a limit, and that'll weigh at least 10 pounds. I'm 7 pounds back, so that would mean I'd need to catch 17 pounds tomorrow. I've caught 16 1/2 on this lake, but never 17 or 18."

His key is sun. If it's sunny, the fish pull up under docks later in the day. That's the only way he can think of to perhaps catch two 5-pounders tomorrow, which he thinks he needs.

4th: Salewske Missing Fish

As noted, Salewske could have been close to Thrift if he'd hooked and/or boated more of his bites this week.

"It feels awesome to make the cut – awesome – but I don't think I can beat Bryan," he said. "I talked to him a little bit – he's one of the nicest guys on the planet – and as good as he's catching them, I don't think so. Actually, he's worried a little about tomorrow. I don't know what that means – maybe something changed for him. But he's the man to beat by far, while the rest of us are just fishing for 2nd. But hey, if I make the Top 5, that's as good as it gets."

As noted, Salewske's burning a crankbait in dirty water up Mountain Creek. But part of that fishing style is dealing with lost fish, and he's had plenty of that.

"I'd be giving Bryan a run for his money if I hooked them all. Every day I've lost two or three big ones. I'm winding a crank as fast as I can and ricocheting it off anything I can find. It's a complete reaction bite and the fish don't always get it in their mouth. I did land a big one today hooked in the gill-plate – a 3 3/4-pounder.

"Where I'm fishing you can't see 2 inches deep, and it's amazing they can find that crank, but they can."

Andy Montgomery's flipping docks but is realistic – he says he's 'pretty much fishing for 2nd' tomorrow.

"I'm just going fishing tomorrow, because I know I'm pretty much fishing for 2nd. So there's no pressure on me. I've already made a big check and I'm just going fishing."

5th: Travis Pumped

Travis made his tour-level debut at the 2008 Forrest Wood Cup and finished 8th. But this marks his first regular-season Tour cut.

"Oh man, it's fricking awesome," he said. "And on your home turf, it's even better. I live 15 minutes from Norman, and Bryan and Andy and I all grew up fishing Norman and fishing team trails against each other. It's a pretty cool deal and I actually met Bryan on the water today and we told each other what we had. He said it would be cool if all three of us made the cut."

Travis did confirm that the current pre-spawn conditions favor locals, because "there are certain areas and places where the fish are, but without local knowledge, I don't think you could catch them there as well – get the better bites. I've run a lot of new areas trying to find fish, but every fish I've weighed in I caught on a place I've caught them on in the past. In fact, I was up at 3:00 in bed last night all nervous – trying to think of places my brother and I fished years ago. And I caught fish on some of those places today."

He said he burned two tanks of gas running from spot to spot today, and traveled from the dam all the way up the river past Buffalo Shoals.

"Bryan would have to zero, and I'd need to have a really good bag to win," he added. "I don't see that happening. Norman just doesn't have the 25-pound bags. I think 18 may be doable, but catching him? I don't think that's going to happen. I made it to the dance – that's the main thing."

6th: Morgan Bummed

As noted in yesterday's coverage, Morgan broke down early on the morning of day 2. He had fishing line around his prop and it broke the seal. He called his buddy Larry Nixon, who came to pick him up. But as it turned out, Nixon gave Morgan his boat, and Nixon fished all day in the crippled rig (Nixon caught just one fish the first day, whereas Morgan was in contention to win).

Morgan showed the strength of his pattern today with a 13-pound limit, but fell 3 ounces short of the cut. A limit yesterday would have put him in.

"I don't feel good about it at all," he said of his finish. "I really am frustrated. I've had so many close calls at Norman – I've now finished 11th, 6th and 2nd. So I've been one place away from where I needed to be 3 years in a row. It's just frustrating."

To add further frustration, he bounced a 15-incher off the side of the boat yesterday right before he came in. That fish right there would have put him in the cut.

7th: Monroe Back in Focus

Two-tour pro Ish Monoe is "okay" with his finish, simply because it shows he's back on track. He had a disastrous home-state campaign the past few weeks with BASS's California swing, but a 7th-place finish here put him back on the right path. And he did it on a single day of practice.

"I told my co-angler today that I think I used up all my luck in '06," he said. "That year I qualified for both championships by one place and won two tournaments. I just think I used it all up.

"A good example is today. I got snagged on a stump and I was trying to pop it off and it wouldn't come. I moved up and looked down and a 4- or 5-pounder was staring at my crank. It I'd had any luck, the crank would have popped off and the fish would have smacked it.

"But I'm okay with the finish because like I said, I knew my mindset in California was wrong, and this has got me back into the mindset of not fishing one event, but a whole season. Championships are what's most important, and you can't win championships if you're not in them."
