Bassmaster Elite at St. Johns River St. Johns River - Palatka, FL, Mar 20 - 23, 2014

Why Chris Lane says 'Pow!'

Bassmaster ‏@BASS_nation  

You're our most Twitter-chatted pro so far, @ChrisLaneFish! This is our fourth chat with you. You're becoming a pro at this. 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

No, y'all are pros at this! I just respond to the fans' questions! 

 

Jennifer Dome ‏@BhamJen  

Have you decided to do anything fun with your winnings from St. Johns? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

I haven't had time to think about it, but I'll probably take the family on vacation. 

 

Tyler Reed ‏@twreed  

Chris, are you looking forward to the Delaware River? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  32m

I've never been there, so yes! I like having new experiences. 

 

Lane Kindle ‏@LaneKindle  

Did you think your area held the caliber of fish it did? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

Yes, I did. Anywhere in Florida you can expect a big bite. 

 

chris ‏@ditchell  

Did you test out “Bam!” or “Boom!” before arriving at “Pow!” ? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

Ha! Oh, man. That's a good one. Pow came out at the Classic. I speak my emotions. I didn't even think about Bam or Boom. 

 

Tyler Reed ‏@twreed  

Chris, how do you enjoy the GoPro cameras in your boat? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

You don't really play to them, it just allows for the opportunity for good coverage that you wouldn't normally get. 

 

Jennifer Dome ‏@BhamJen  

What Elite Series fishery are you looking forward to visiting on the trail this year? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

We've done my two favorites already, but heading forward I'm excited about visiting Toledo Bend. 

 

Colton Wolfe ‏@LIlWolfeMan  

Ice just left here in Iowa. Should crank baits be my main focus for catching bass? What other baits would work? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

Yes, crankbaits would be a good pick. 

 

DNM Farmer ‏@DNMFarmer  

What gear changes do you make from St. John's to gin clear Table Rock? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

You go from 65-pound Stren Sonic braid to 6- to 10-pound fluorocarbon, so that's a big difference. Water clarity is a big on Table Rock & you don't have any vegetation, so you don't have to worry about getting hung up.

 

Tyler Reed ‏@twreed  

Chris, who would you pick for your Fantasy Fishing team this week? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

The local guys @StratosMike, Jeff Kriet, Brian Snowden and @kevin_short would be at the top of my list. 

 

Lane Kindle ‏@LaneKindle  

Florida is always dominated by guys from Florida. Why don't guys from other states defend their home waters as well? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

Florida is so much grass and vegetation that if you don't grow up there, it's difficult to figure it out. 

 

Jennifer Dome ‏@BhamJen  

Were you happy with the way your town rallied around the Classic at Guntersville this year? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

That was pretty awesome! It was an emotional day. 

 

Tyler Reed ‏@twreed  

Chris, how did you feel when you realized you had a sack that big? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

It felt fantastic but it's a 4 day tournament, not a 1 day tournament. I knew I had more days to fish. 

Tyler Reed ‏@twreed  

Did you realize it was over 37 pounds? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

I did. The big fish were biting that day. You don't get many days like that! 

 

Daniel Goodwin ‏@goodwindaniel83  

What are your top three baits for pre-spawn fishing? 

Chris Lane Fishing ‏@ChrisLaneFish  

You gotta go with a swimmin' frog, a stick bait and a Rat-L-Trap or rattle-type bait. 

Daniel Goodwin ‏@goodwindaniel83  

Thank you sir, good luck the rest of the season.
