PALATKA, Fla. — Chris Lane's 37-pound, 9-ounce bag from Day 2 of the Bassmaster Elite at St. Johns River is the kind of thing anglers dream about.
And when he brought that sack to the scales, the audience jumped for joy, just like Lane had been doing all day in the boat while he was catching lunker after lunker. And, of course, he yelled "Pow!" when he was catching 'em.
Rght after he came off the water for practice at Table Rock in Missouri, Lane took fan questions in a B.A.S.S. Twitter chat, regarding that win. One fan asked why "pow" is his word of choice and not "bam" or "boom."
"I don't know," said Lane, laughing. "I speak my emotions, and that just came out!"
Hi, @ChrisLaneFish! Thanks for joining the Twitter chat, and congratulations on your big victory!
Glad to be back on Twitter, that means things are good! Happy to join everyone and what a great opportunity to win in Florida!
What's the weather like right now at Table Rock?
Cloudy, windy and hot!
I'm looking forward to it! Trying to get my first check fishing a lake in the Ozarks.
Shallow in spring for bass right?
Yes, that is correct.
What is your favorite lure for the spawn?
Can't go wrong with the new Luck-E-Strike that I used in Florida. It's a soft stick style bait that works really well.
Awesome thanks!! Good luck the rest of the year. Rooting for you! You got me the W last week in fantasy!!
Good, be careful who you pick this week!
I got a good lineup! Still rooting for you though.
Hey, @ChrisLaneFish. That was a huge sack of fish on St. Johns. What pattern do you expect on Table Rock?
Thank you! I expect a prespawn bite here.
