Russ Lane found the money bite, but it still might not be enough to make the Top 12 cut.
Marshal Tom Marler sent us this picture of Lane with an estimated 5-6 pounder. The fish gives Lane about 15 pounds, and while he did move up from his 42nd starting position, it might not be enough. On the unofficial BASSTrakk, Lane has passed a number of anglers to jump up to 18th.
The Prattville, Ala., pro who has one B.A.S.S. victory will have to find this one's sibling, or maybe two like it, to make his 11th top 10 cut.
