Cloud hovers over Toho

Cloud hovers over Toho

Lubbock, Texas resident Jeff Cloud, who's fished numerous Bassmaster Opens over the past decade but has never logged a Top-20 finish, took over the lead today at the Lake Toho Southern Open in Florida with an 18-06 sack that pushed his 2-day total to 34-12. He'll start the final day with a 2 1/2-pound advantage.

Day-1 leader Todd Auten blanked and fell all the way to 28th place. Kota Kiriyama, who began day 2 in 2nd place, weighed three fish for 4-06 and plummeted to 19th.

Cloud's closest pursuers are three Floridians – Phillip Cury with 32-04, John Brazzell with 31-06 and Garrett Rocamora with 30-03. Van Soles, who's in 6th with 29-06, weighed the biggest fish of the tournament today – a 10-07 bruiser that he caught while punching with a 2-ounce weight.

Russ Lane (9th, 28-02) was the only tour-level angler to make the Top 12.
