2012 Elite Series Toledo Bend Battle Toledo Bend Reservoir - Many, LA, Jun 7 - 10, 2012

Not fishing today, but Bobby Lane has an impressive streak

I mentioned the record that KVD set yesterday (17 straight Top 50 finishes). There's another angler out there stalking a record, though he has quite a ways to go. Yesterday Bobby Lane caught a five-bass limit for the 34th consecutive competition day. He didn't qualify for the Top 50 cut, so he won't have a chance to add to his tally today, but Lane is one of the best at putting five keepers in the boat every single day.

 

In fact, Lane kicked off his Elite Series career with 47 consecutive limits. That's second best all-time behind — you guessed it — Kevin VanDam, who posted a string of 57 straight limits between March 2008 and June 2009.

 

There have only been eight streaks of 40 or more, and two belong to KVD. If Lane can keep his streak alive for another six days, he'll join VanDam as the only two anglers to have two such lengthy runs.
