A 34th-place finish a few weeks ago at Ft. Loudoun–Tellico was apparently just a hiccup for Brent Ehrler, because he's back on his blistering pace that had him ranked No. 1 in the world 2 1/2 months ago. On a day when many in the field struggled, he caught 18-11 and vaulted into the lead after 3 days of competition at the Ouachita FLW Tour.

And he did it shallow with a topwater. It's a popular pattern

this week, but only a handful of pros have been able to work the bite all day long and he's one of them. Maybe it's the particular area of the lake he's in, maybe it's his chops – either way, he looks strong with just one day left to fish.

His big bag pushed him past Scott Suggs, who led as the field blasted off this morning. Suggs kept to his deep-water routine but came in light with 10-13 after an 8-ounce dead-fish penalty.

Keith Monson kept up his end of the bargain and brought in a respectable 13-pound bag to make the second Tour cut of his 5-year career. In 3rd, he trails Ehrler by 2-04. The heartbreaker for Monson was that he lost a big one with about 30 minutes left that would have likely given him the lead.

David Dudley stunned the field with the day's heaviest bag (18-13), which moved him up 13 spots into the 4th-place position. Ironically, Dudley's best pal Jacob Powroznik turned him onto the pattern late in practice, and Dudley's move into the Top 5 pushed Powroznik out. Powroznik finished 6th – 7 ounces off the cut pace.

The final angler who'll fish tomorrow is two-tour pro Ish Monroe, who weighed 14-02 today. He was in 7th when the day began.

Along with Powroznik, Roy Hawk also fell out of the cut. Hawk rocketed up to 4th yesterday, helped by an 8-pound bite, but finished 7th after a 10-15 limit today.

For reference here's a look at the current Top 5, with distance from leader noted in red.

1. Brent Ehrler: 46-06
2. Scott Suggs: 45-10 (0-12)
3. Keith Monson: 44-02 (2-04)
4. David Dudley: 44-01 (2-05)
5. Ish Monroe: 42-02 (4-04)

Three distinct patterns seem to be in play. There's Suggs and his deep stuff – tree-fishing and worm-holing.

There's the all-day shallow topwater bite, which Monroe's working for sure, and probably Ehrler.

Then there's the shallow light-line finesse bite, which Dudley and Monson are on.

Which one will prevail? Impossible to say and the weights are all close. A 19-plus-pound bag from anyone tomorrow would likely be enough to clinch the win.

The lake will be extremely busy on the Memorial Day Saturday. Suggs, for one, will have cruisers and pleasure-boaters running all over his stuff. The bank-fishermen will more likely face local fishing pressure. So even though the field is cut from 137 to 5 boats, crowding will be a factor.

A note of interest: Ouachita gets notoriously tough on any easterly wind. It came out of the east today, and is predicted to be light out of the northeast tomorrow.

Also, Bryan Thrift will still lead the FLW Tour Angler of the Year (AOY) race after tomorrow's competition, but Ehrler gained enough ground with his top 5 to move up to 2nd in the race. Ehrler will trail Thrift by no more than 24 points after tomorrow.

Ehrler Realistic

Sometimes pros give the political answer: They're fishing against other great anglers and they're not sure what'll happen the following day.

In Ehrler's case, he seems genuinely sure that he has no idea what to expect tomorrow. He's throwing a topwater, which means the distinct possibility of lost fish. Plus the water continues to drop, the fish are moving, and Memorial Day boat traffic could easily muddy the shallow water.

But he's fished by the seat of his pants for most of the past 2 years and it brought him to No. 1 in the world.

"I feel pretty good, but to win this one would be tough," he said. "It would take getting the right things going. I know what I'm going to do, but I just don't know if I can get the bites doing it. I could catch 5 pounds tomorrow, I could catch 20. I don't have one brushpile or something that I can pull up to and know I can catch a 3-pounder. It's not like that. I'm just fishing.

"Losing them's always going to be an issue," he added. "That's just inherent with (a topwater). The other thing is the fish are moving, and they're real finicky here. It's not consistent. They can be very finicky on wanting to bite. That's what makes it really tough."

Scott Suggs will stick with him gameplan and fish the lake the same way he always does (deep).

He does think he'll be able to run his areas more easily with all but four other pros now eliminated, but he's concerned about "the boat traffic in general."

"Everyone in the Top 5's a threat. And the way I'm fishing, anything can happen. I can catch 3, Suggs can catch 20, Ish can catch 20. Anything can happen. It's going to be a shootout tomorrow.

"My expectations are obviously big. I want to go out and win. But again, I'm looking at the reality of it. I'd be fortunate to catch a few fish, and if I get a few good ones in the boat, I can win the tournament."

2nd: Suggs Will Stick With it

Suggs, a local, won the 2007 Forrest Wood Cup here on the same type of pattern he's running. He got rattled on day 1 when a 90-minute fog delay put a wrench into his plans, but he said he was never rattled today. He just ran his stuff and stayed with it.

He did lose a good fish early this morning that would have helped tremendously. Other than that (and the dead-fish penalty), he's not sure why he came in so light today.

"I ran the exact same stuff and I don't really understand what happened," he said. "I ran that deep-tree deal early this morning and I had the opportunity to have a better bag. I'd caught a limit every morning pretty early, and this morning I had my fifth fish on – well over 3 pounds. She never jumped or anything – she just pulled off by the boat.

"Then I went on through my other stuff and wound up catching one more keeper doing something else. I only had six keeper bites today, but I'm not changing anything tomorrow. It's all I know and it's the way I fish this lake. If I get beat by somebody doing something else, I'll get beat, but I'll stay with my gameplan."

That said, part of his gameplan tomorrow will be to hit a few historic holes if he needs to. He went and looked at some today, but couldn't get on them due to other boats. Those boats weren't set up on the spots like he'd be, though, so he thinks he can run-and-gun for a few key bites tomorrow.

3rd: Monson Seeks Consistency

While Suggs and Ehrler have both had ups and downs over the 3 days, Monson's been consistent. He opened with 16 pounds, weighed 15 the next day and came in with 13 today. If he can tickle the 15- or 16-pound mark tomorrow, which is the best he's done on any practice or competition day, he'd certainly put the heat on Ehrler and Suggs.

Keith Monson lost a good fish late today, but overall, he's been consistent in the mid-teens.

As far as what he's doing, he's one of the finesse guys. The fish have pulled out of the bushes, he said, and he's sitting back and making long casts. Interesting too is that he found a late bite today and yesterday. He won't have as long to fish tomorrow – day 4 is always a short day – but it could all easily come down to the final 30 minutes.

"I'm excited – it's been a couple of years since I made (a cut)," Monson said. "That's too long to go between them. I'm really excited about having a shot at winning. I think if I get a couple breaks here or there, I have a shot. The worst I can finish is 5th, so I'll be going for it.

"I lost a real nice one coming in today," he added. "I would have had about 3 more pounds. And I had two dead ones the first day. With all the bad things that have gone against me, maybe good things will happen now."

The Kentucky resident did say he was a little rattled this morning with the camera on him and he probably fished too fast. But he did come across a school late in the day with a toad in it, and he hopes he can get that school to light up tomorrow. Plus, he was one of the last boats out this morning and his first four or five stops were covered up. He should have a free go at those areas tomorrow, barring local traffic.

About what a win would mean to him, he said the finances "would be great," but it's more of a personal thing. "That's what we fish for – we shoot for the top. Now I have a legitimate shot to do it. It would be very gratifying."

4th: Dudley Committed

When big money's on the line, and Dudley has a genuine shot to win, he generally does. He's won an AOY title, the Forrest Wood Cup, the Ranger M1 and has pulled about $2.5 million dollars out of FLW Outdoors competition.

Despite past winnings, he feels the economic pinch like everybody else, and his desire to win tomorrow is clear in his voice and candor.

"This is financial," he said. "I've won about everything there is, but right now, at this time of my life and with what's going on, this would be a financial win vs. anything else."

So far, some lost fish have stood between him and the lead, although the same could be said for everyone else in the Top 5. A 4-pounder broke him off today that could have put him into the 21-pound range, and he also got stuck with a small fish. So he's definitely on quality.

David Dudley says his buddy Jacob Powroznik helped him dial into a little better quality during practice.

And it was best mate Powroznik who helped him find it. "It would have been fun for TV if we both would have made it," Dudley said. "But I hate that he missed it. I was catching them pretty good in practice, but he helped me out – he helped put me on a little better quality than I was catching.

"I feel good about tomorrow though. I really do. You never know how it's going to play out, especially here where they're jacking with the water level and everything. But I feel good."

He's committed to his shallow bite tomorrow, he noted, but he's seeing fewer and fewer fish each day. He thinks the quality's still there to win – evidenced by his 18-13 bag today – and he thinks he can repeat or better that weight if things "go right."

5th: Monroe Finally Made it

Prior to today, Monroe had won a Stren, a Western FLW Series and two BFLS, but he'd never made an FLW Tour cut over the 2 1/2 years he fished the Tour. That changed today when he made the cut in 5th.

"Yeah, I finally made one on the Tour side," he said. "This is my third year fishing the tour – basically my 15th event. My run with FLW has been pretty strong – I think in 60 tournaments I've had like 18 Top 10s with four wins and $450,000 in winnings – but it feels good to make it on the Tour."

As noted, he's fishing a topwater. Specifically, it's a Paycheck Baits Repo Man. Paycheck is a new company owned by Bub Tosh, and he's working with Hideki Maeda of Japan to bring baits over. Maeda is well-known in fishing circles for originally working with Andre Moore and Reaction Innovations on the Vixen, Beaver and other baits. Maeda and Moore have since parted ways.

"I've got about the same amount of bites every single day," Monroe noted. "And I've had the opportunity for 17 to 20 pounds every single day. Landing them's tough. I've got the right equipment – the Daiwa Fle-X-Lite rod has been huge for me. I'm fishing with braid and the rod's graphite but very close to fiberglass. But anytime you're fishing with braid, especially in the post-spawn, you're landing some and losing some.

"I was 7 1/2 pounds out of the lead this morning, and now I'm 4 pounds out. Anything's possible here. We're going to have a lot of boat traffic, but I set myself up a gameplan for making the cut for boat traffic and I think it'll play to my advantage. I have several areas I've kept in my back pocket and some certain ways I want to fish.".

About what a win tomorrow would mean for him, he said it would be a financial and personal triumph. Given the reality of today, he knows how tough the sponsor market will be. The win would prove to him that he's back in the groove, and also allow him some more bargaining power during the off-season. As well, the Top 5 all but assures him a berth in the Cup, and he's close to making the Bassmaster Classic through the Elite Series.

"I want to make both, because then you have something to offer sponsor that a lot of other guys don't," he said.

Notable

> Day 3 stats – 94 limits (16 more than yesterday), 14 fours, 10 threes, 9 twos, 6 ones, 4 zeroes (1 fewer than yesterday).

> Powroznik said he feels great about his finish despite being first out of the cut. "If somebody told me that I was going to finish 6th and I didn't have to come, heck yeah I'd have stayed home. I don't think I could have won. This is Memorial Day weekend, and this morning, I had a pontoon boat pulling two tubes around my best stretch for 30 minutes, with waves crashing in and everything. The fish are up in 1 foot of water, so I'm just thankful for where I finished."

> Hawk (7th) noted: "I'm pleased with my performance for sure. I was really blessed yesterday with that big bag. That seems to be my thing on tour this year – I need to have one of those giant days to keep up with these guys."

> Dave Lefebre (30th) is asking for prayers for his grandmother, who had brain tumors removed last night. "A prayer for my grandmother Dorothy would really be appreciated," he told the crowd.

> Jay Yelas finished 50th and was the last pro to get paid. Overall he's disappointed. For his post-tournament report, click here to go On Tour With the BassFan Big Sticks.
