Despite a slow start, Brandon Perkins has put himself back in the unofficial lead heading into the afternoon.

With several anglers behind getting off to a fast start, leader Brandon Perkins has worked his way back into the mix, giving him a sizable lead going into the afternoon. Perkins is listed on the Weigh Live Tracker as having four bass for over 17-pounds, giving him a 10-pound plus cushion.

Reams and Corbishley have continued to catch fish, culling up a little bit since the morning update. Reams is sitting in second-place with over 20-pounds on the day, while Corbishley is stilling at almost 18-pounds.

Other notable big movers include Todd Goade, Gary Adkins, Sheldon Collings and John Cox (Florida). Goade struggled on day one with only 7-pounds, but has since weighed in 18-pounds plus on day two and is looking at over 15-pounds today. Gary Adkins and Sheldon Collings both got caught up in the lock mishaps on day one and were unable to weigh in. Unofficially, they both sit within the top 15 with a great comeback in this tournament. Debary, Florida John Cox was only able to weigh in 2 bass on day one but has moved into 17th overall with over 15-pounds on the final day thus far.
