Shaye Baker and I spent a couple of hours on the Sabine River today, saw a bunch of Elite Series anglers and no fish catches. So we decided to hang out with Chris Lane for our last 30 minutes. Lane said he had two fish in the boat - one good one, about 3 pounds and another about
1 1/2 pounds.
We did see Lane catch a short fish. We were about to head in when Lane said, "Hang on a minute, and I'll catch a 2-pounder for you."
He liked the looks of the mat coming up in front of his boat. And, right on cue, Lane delivered. Although the fish didn't quite weigh 2 pounds, it was a keeper.
That's three fish for a still-smiling Chris Lane.
