Chris Lane said yesterday that he wasn't going to let it get in his head, the fact that he's been losing two or three big bass a day in the thick vegetation he's fishing. Well, he just had his first frustrating moment of this day. He set the hook on a big one, which quickly wound his line around some reeds. After the fish was off, Lane broke his line trying to retrieve his lure, then banged his rod on the side of the boat.
How big was the fish? Lane looked over at James Overstreet and me, then held his hands about 2 feet apart. It was a big one.
