2013 Bassmaster Classic Grand Lake O' the Cherokees - Tulsa, OK, Feb 22 - 24, 2013

Lane ready to defend his title

Connor Edmonds ‏@bassinNC

What technique have you started to dial in on since you've been in the Elites?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

The drop shot and the jerkbait, due to the fact that we fish a lot of clear water.

Connor Edmonds ‏@bassinNC

Was it a tough transition from a flippin' stick to a drop shot rod?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

Yes! There is a monumental difference between the two. From line size, to feel, to the way you land a fish.

 

Zach Meadows ‏@zsmeadows

What is your favorite setup for throwing a frog, and when is the earliest time of year to start?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

Start when the water hits 58 or warmer. 50-pound Stren Sonic Braid on an All-Star Flipping Frog Rod and Revo MGX 7:1

 

hunter goad ‏@Hunter_Goad

Mostly flipping at the classic? or what cover will you be looking for?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

Not planning to flip but if conditions set up to flip, I will be encouraged. I'll be looking at docks & willow trees.

 

Tyler Meadows ‏@GTylerMeadows

Who would win a wrestling match between you and bobby?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

We have tried that a few times, and usually the one who starts it ends up the winner. We've both won and lost!

 

Adam Smith ‏@AWsmithBassman

I fish the rock river, IL. big but no backwaters. fast current Any tips for bigger bites? I catch a lot of shorts.

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

Try a bigger size bait and maybe go a little deeper.

 

Jim Sexton ‏@James_Lynn

Chris who would you put on your 5 person Fantasy Fishing team for the Classic?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

Jason Christie, Edwin Evers, Mike McClelland, Bobby Lane & the kid from Auburn @wmattlee

 

Marc Henderson ‏@bassmonkey1975

What's your go to bait? And why

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

Fast Lane prototype tubes will be hitting the stores soon. I promise you they will catch fish.

Marc Henderson ‏@bassmonkey1975

Cool

 

Kenneth Gobble ‏@kengobble

Which events this year do you think play better to your strengths and which event do you not look forward to?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

I look forward to them all! The ones that will fish to my strengths are the Sabine River, the Alabama River & West Point Lake because I can get into the shallow waters and work hard to catch fish.

 

Gus Chavira ‏@GusChavira

Whom do you fear most fishing against you in the same area you find a good fish? Guy that makes you look over your shoulder?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

Bobby. We fish so much alike. Knowing he's fished that area, it would hurt me to fish that area.

Gus Chavira ‏@GusChavira

I thought you might say that. Thats kind of cool and challenging at the same time.

 

Corey Locker ‏@CoreyLocker

When you're having an "off" day what are some things you do differently to get a bite

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

Sometimes you just turn around in a circle & then go back to what you were doing & refocus your mental attitude

Corey Locker ‏@CoreyLocker

That's definitely something I've learned from our couch this last year! It plays a big factor . Thanks

 

Marty Ballard ‏@Saints859

You're allowed 3 baits on a lake you've never seen. What would you choose?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

A Luck E Strike jerkbait, an RC2 and a couple packs of Fast Lane baits.

 

Zach Meadows ‏@zsmeadows

If you had to throw one bait during the month of March, what would it be and why?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

During March, I would get packs of the new Fast Lane baits because fish are spawning.

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

If you put the bait near them while they're spawning, you'll catch fish. Slower is better.

 

Cole Campbell @Cole_Campbell10

Smallmouth or largeheads?

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish

Largeheads! But smallmouth are fun to catch.
