A little overnight cold snap did nothing to slow down Brett Hite on day 2 of the Lake Okeechobee FLW Tour.

After weighing in the second-heaviest stringer in FLW Tour history on day 1, Hite was under the gun to not fritter away such a dynamic start to the event. He came through with a stout 23-08 bag that gave him a whopping 58-07 at the halfway mark, a total that has him 12 1/2 pounds clear of his nearest competitor reigning Forrest Wood Cup champ Randall Tharp.

Seemingly nothing has gone wrong for Hite so far. He hasn't lost a fish. He's weighed in numerous 7-pounders and he's more than halfway to the century mark and possibly his second career Tour victory.

"To have a 30-plus pound day followed by a day in the mid-20s, that's pretty awesome," Hite said. "I'm just going fishing and having fun. I'm fishing real loose and I'm definitely not uptight. I'm just relaxed and confident and am fishing the way I like to fish. I have a lot of confidence in what I'm doing."

Tharp, who's no slouch at Okeechobee, is doing his best to stay within reach of Hite. He sacked 22-01 today to push his total to 45-14. Matt Herren, who's fishing his first FLW Tour (non-Open) event since 2008, is 3rd with 41-03 after a second straight 20-pound day.

Coincidentally, Hite, Tharp and Herren are all slated to fish both the FLW Tour and Bassmaster Elite Series this year.

Leon Williams, a 69-year-old Tour rookie, caught 22-05 today and rose to 4th with 41-02. Greg Bohannan, who started the day in 2nd, slid three spots to 5th with 40-13 after his weight fell off by more than half.

Here's a look at the Top 10 after the halfway point of competition, with deficit margin from Hite indicated by red numbers in parentheses:

1. Brett Hite: 58-07
2. Randall Tharp: 45-14 (12-08)
3. Matt Herren: 41-03 (17-04)
4. Leon Williams: 41-02 (17-05)
5. Greg Bohannan: 40-13 (17-10)
6. Brent Ehrler: 39-15 (18-08)
7. Stetson Blaylock: 38-13 (19-10)
8. Larry Nixon: 38-07 (20-00)
9. Fred Roumbanis: 38-04 (21-03)
10. James Watson: 37-14 (21-09)

An overnight cold front that dropped temperatures into the low 60s was accompanied by some decent wind today and that had some anglers saying the bite was much tougher. As is typical at Okeechobee, though, many anglers who struggled out of the gate figured something else out today and had much better results. Conversely, several pros who brought in hefty bags on day 1 saw their spots dry up and their weights fall off.

Not surprisingly, a combination of moving baits and flipping and punching baits are getting the job done for most remaining in the field. Those doing their business in the historically productive areas like Harney Pond and North Shore should have more room to work tomorrow after those locales produced the majority of money finishes this week.

Among the big climbers today was Brent Ehrler, who seems to have Florida figured out once and for all. He followed up a 16-pound day 1 with a 23-plus sack today to make the weekend in 6th. Stetson Blaylock put 10 extra pounds on the scale today and shot up to 7th.

Kerry Milner, who won the BFL All-American last year and went on to finish 4th at the Cup, made the Top-20 cut in his first Tour event, thanks to a 24-pound stringer today. Peter Thliveros climbed from 129th to 18th on the strength of a 25-15 bag that was anchored by an 8-15 brute that was the day's big fish. This marks his first Top-20 cut since 2011.

Ryan Chandler, who started the day in 3rd, managed just two fish for 10-03, but it was enough to make the cut in 16th.

Those whose weights fell off significantly and dropped out of contention were: Rich Dalbey (6th to 22nd), Michael Wooley (6th to 29th) and Michael Neal (12th to 28th). Jacob Wheeler's 27-14 was the day's big stringer, but he wound up 21st and missed the weekend by 6 ounces.

Tomorrow's forecast is calling for more pleasant conditions with partly cloudy skies and a daytime high of 83. Winds, however, are expected to blow out of the southwest at 10 to 15 mph. The Top 10 following tomorrow will advance to Sunday's final round, when the winner will be determined by highest cumulative weight.

Hite Honing In

> Day 2: 5, 23-08 (10, 58-07)

Hite said he didn't notice any significant differences from day 1 in how the fish set up, but he did say the reduced boat traffic will be beneficial.

"It'll be nice to not have as many people running around in the area," he said. "Having 180 boats in the field is brutal. It'll be nice to slim it down and just hone in on a few spots."

Matt Herren's new approach to fishing in Florida is paying off this week.

After catching close to 60 pounds over the first 2 days, one would think Hite may have tapped into a new section of the lake or figured out a new way to catch pre-spawners. To the contrary, he's been hunkered down in one of the historically most productive areas of the lake on the west side and has no designs on abandoning it.

"They're areas I've fished a lot at Okeechobee," he said. "It has the biggest amount of grass and the biggest population of fish."

He felt that the cooler temps this morning had the fish on their heels, but they eventually cooperated.

"I caught a nice one right off the bat and that settled me down a bit," he said. "I told my co-angler to not expect to get into a flurry where we catch 20 pounds off one spot. It's all about plucking one here and there and just consistently catching them throughout the day."

He knows that he needs to continue on that same path for 2 more days despite the sizable cushion he has.

"I just need to go fish the best of my ability," he added. "I know I'm on the right track. I figure I need to catch between 20 and 25 each day to be right there. When you have a 13-pound lead, if you can pound out those 20-pound stringers, it's going to be tough to catch me."

2nd: Tharp In Comfort Zone

> Day 2: 5, 22-01 (10, 45-14)

Tharp is enjoying what's shaping up to be a duel this weekend between he and his friend Hite.

"He's beat me by one place a bunch of times and I've beaten him by a spot or two before," Tharp said. "Whether it's for 49th and 50th or 2nd and 3rd, you always like to beat your buddies."

Right now, Hite has the upper hand, but Tharp is settling into a familiar groove at Okeechobee this week, fishing some thick, gnarly cover that others aren't willing to devote similar chunks of time to.

He said he had three "real good fish" get off today, one of which he never saw.

"They bit pretty good again early, then there was that midday lull," he said. "I had the bites to have a real big bag. It wasn't anything I did wrong. It wasn't equipment failure or anything like that. I just hope I get fortunate to catch them all tomorrow and hopefully get them all in the boat."

He said he should have his spots to himself tomorrow as Randy Haynes was the only other competitor in the vicinity today.

He caught five off his first spot today and left with about 18 pounds. He then moved in to the part of the lake where he won the 2012 Tour event and picked up two of his big fish, including a 6-08.

"There are certain areas on this lake where I know they pull up on first," he said. "They're worth checking every day because if you hit them the day they move up, you could be looking at a 40-pound bag. It's just a waiting game. They're coming and it's just a matter of when they're going to get there."

He went through about 12 keepers today, but he isn't interested in sorting through 2-pounders.

"If I need to catch 12 or 15 pounds, I feel like I can do that in an hour, but I don't have opportunities to catch big ones doing that," he said. "There are no secrets here. I've been seen everywhere I've been by lots of people. It's just not a lot of people are willing to stick with it like I am. I'm just that stubborn. I might come in with nothing tomorrow, but I might not."

3rd: Herren Having a Blast

> Day 2: 5, 20-13 (10, 41-03)

Historically, Florida has been a house of horrors for Herren.

A change of attitude when it comes to fishing in crowds this week has led to a change in outcomes so far.

"I'm tickled to death right now," he said. "Normally, I'd be gone by now being in Florida. My stats down here are pretty bad. The biggest thing has been just making the right decisions and not trying to do too much.

"Maybe I've started to learn from my mistakes down here. I've always caught a lot of fish here, but a lot of Florida is about the decision-making process and patience and understanding the fish. More than anything, that's what's helped me this week."

He said he's also been more willing to fish around other competitors, which is saying something considering there were 178 boats on the lake the first 2 days.

"Historically, I don't like fishing in crowds," he said. "This week, I just took the mental attitude that I don't see anybody or anything and I'm just focused on my fishing and nothing else."

He's catching plenty of fish that don't matter size-wise, but he is connecting with five to seven good fish a day and his execution so far, save for one instance, has been flawless.

"The fish keep changing every day," he said. "It's like they're doing something different each day and that's been the real challenge trying to figure out what their next move is. They seem like they're trying to come in off the big lake now, so I'm going to live or die where I'm at."

4th: Big O Kind to Williams So Far

> Day 2: 5, 22-05 (10, 41-02)

Williams, a 69-year-old Tour rookie from Fairfield, Ky., is excited to get another day on the water.

"Old men can still find fish," he joked. "I've fished Okeechobee quite a few times and I hate to call it a finicky lake but normally you can catch them one day, but not the next. So far this week, it's been good to me."

It took him a little bit of time to locate the fish in his key area this morning. Once he did, he didn't let them slip away.

"I think the wind blew on those fish all night long," he said. "Where I was fishing it had 1- and 2-foot rollers and it took me a while to find them. They had moved in close to a hard wall of grass. I thought they'd left, but I just had to fish further in and move shallower."

He went through about 15 keepers and hung in the same area as he fished day 1 despite an increase in boat traffic.

"There were a lot more boats in there today," he said. "It actually hurt the fishing. The fish shut down for about 2 hours, but once the boats started leaving there were about three of us left and they started biting again."

He said when the sun came out and wind tailed off, the bite got tougher.

"I don't know if it scattered the fish or what," he said.

5th: Bohannan Going to Plan B

> Day 2: 5, 13-11 (10, 40-14)

Bohannan had some company in his primary area today and didn't get near the number of bites he did yesterday. Still, he was able to clinch his career-best finish in Florida.

"I was fortunate to catch some 3-pounders," he said. "I didn't get as many bites today because I really hammered on them yesterday. There was another boat in there today that caught 24 pounds. I just didn't get any quality bites."

Sensing his area is about to dry up, he might do something different tomorrow.

"I'm probably going to scrap everything and just go fishing," he said.

He said he's been catching his fish on a mix of flipping baits, a bladed jig, a spinnerbait and a single swimbait.

"I'm a Beaver Lake guy," he said. "Any time I can come to Florida and stay in the Top 50, I'm tickled. Who knows, I could come across a giant bag tomorrow and make it interesting. You're never out of it in Florida."

21st: Wheeler Kicking Himself

> Day 2: 5, 27-14 (10, 35-06)

After Day 1, you had to scan all the way down to 166th in the standings to find Wheeler's name. Today, he nearly made it all the way back to the Top 20.

He continued a trend of struggling on day 1 and rallying on day 2 (he did the same thing at last year's Cup) and he's kicking himself for not investing more time on Thursday in the area that produced a hefty stringer today.

"It seems like the second day, I calm down and get into my rhythm and do my thing," he said. "Today, I went into an area where I felt like I could catch between 20 and 30 pounds. I knew I had areas that I wanted to flip, but I also figured I'd be around a lot of boats."

As it turns out, he was pretty much by himself. His first keeper was a 7-pounder and he followed that up with a 6-pounder and a 5-pounder, all flipping and punching a Trigger X Goo Bug.

"I just kept going from there," he added. "The problem was I thought those areas were going to get a lot of pressure and it turned out nobody was fishing them. I'm obviously kicking myself now for not fishing there on day 1, but that's all part of decision-making."

107th: Avena Steered Clear of Crowds

> Day 2: 5, 11-07 (10, 23-10)

Adrian Avena expected more from himself this week. The New Jersey pro entered his third year on Tour on the heels of a 7th-place finish in AOY points and a strong showing at the Forrest Wood Cup last year. He was hoping he'd keep the momentum going at Okeechobee.

It wasn't meant to be as he tallied a pair of 10-pound limits and went home with his first triple-digit Tour finish.

"It's pitiful, that's all I can say," he said. "If you look at what's going on we're a week before the moon and there aren't a lot of spawning fish. There are some up shallow, but the biggest thing here is just like any other lake that has one key area that just gets pounded."

He was referring to the North Shore and Harney Pond area, where he estimated a vast majority of anglers who cashed $10,000 checks caught their fish.

He opted to steer clear of those areas in hopes he could get on a big-fish bite elsewhere.

"I didn't want to fish in the crowds," he said. "I wanted to fish around something else on my own, something that wouldn't get a lot of pressure and that turned out to bite me in the rear."

He said he had some big fish on, but execution was an issue for him.

"I'm not used to this," he said. "I've been blessed so far and have had some strong finishes. This wasn't a good way to start the season."
