FLW Halftime

Tomorrow's take-off at Beaver Lake will start the second half of the FLW Tour season and the points race for Forrest Wood Cup qualification. With three events completed and three to go, no one is absolutely in or out based on points. That said, some have pretty substantial hills to climb while others sit in a pretty nice position.

Halfway home, the top few spots in the Angler of the Year standings are occupied by Cody Meyer, Andy Morgan (last year's 2013 AOY) and Randall Tharp (2013 Forrest Wood Cup champion).

So far the Tour has visited Lake Okeechobee in Florida, Lake Hartwell on the Georgia/South Carolina border, and Sam Rayburn in Texas, and the pros have seen three totally different types fisheries. It's been an eventful first half, with many story lines playing out. Check out FLW's Top 10 Highlights.

For the next four days, FLW Tour pros will fish Beaver, in the Arkansas Ozarks, with some anglers fishing ultra clear water in the lake's lower end and other fishing in heavy stain up the White River. The tour season will conclude with stops on two big Tennessee River impoundments --  Pickwick and Kentucky Lake -- both in June.

The championship, the Forrest Wood Cup, will be held on South Carolina's Lake Murray August 14-17.
