Lane holding out for bigger fish

7:33 am CDT, Jun 23, 2012 | By Jim Sexton

Chris Lane was fishing with a frog, then switched to a creature bait. He's targeting holes within the hydrilla. He has already caught five fish, but he's tossed them all back in. Here's why. We're on the Minnesota side of the Mississippi. And there is no culling in Minnesota. Sure he can cross back over to Wisconsin and cull, but it looks like Chris is swinging for the fences. Go big or go home. He's in the Top 50 and he's not going to get into the Top 12 unless he catches some bigger fish. So he's releasing the small to medium fish.
