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!"

Below is the transcript from the chat in its entirety. Check out transcripts from Twitter chats with other pros here, and follow @BASS_Nation on Twitter for the latest in everything fishing.

What is your favorite lure for the spawn? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

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. 

Austin Seibert ‏@Abert43  

Awesome thanks!! Good luck the rest of the year. Rooting for you! You got me the W last week in fantasy!! 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

Good, be careful who you pick this week!

I got a good lineup! Still rooting for you though.
