You're our most Twitter-chatted pro so far, @ChrisLaneFish! This is our fourth chat with you. You're becoming a pro at this.
No, y'all are pros at this! I just respond to the fans' questions!
Have you decided to do anything fun with your winnings from St. Johns?
I haven't had time to think about it, but I'll probably take the family on vacation.
Chris, are you looking forward to the Delaware River?
I've never been there, so yes! I like having new experiences.
Did you think your area held the caliber of fish it did?
Yes, I did. Anywhere in Florida you can expect a big bite.
Did you test out “Bam!” or “Boom!” before arriving at “Pow!” ?
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.
Chris, how do you enjoy the GoPro cameras in your boat?
You don't really play to them, it just allows for the opportunity for good coverage that you wouldn't normally get.
What Elite Series fishery are you looking forward to visiting on the trail this year?
We've done my two favorites already, but heading forward I'm excited about visiting Toledo Bend.
Ice just left here in Iowa. Should crank baits be my main focus for catching bass? What other baits would work?
Yes, crankbaits would be a good pick.
What gear changes do you make from St. John's to gin clear Table Rock?
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.
Chris, who would you pick for your Fantasy Fishing team this week?
Florida is always dominated by guys from Florida. Why don't guys from other states defend their home waters as well?
Florida is so much grass and vegetation that if you don't grow up there, it's difficult to figure it out.
Were you happy with the way your town rallied around the Classic at Guntersville this year?
That was pretty awesome! It was an emotional day.
Chris, how did you feel when you realized you had a sack that big?
It felt fantastic but it's a 4 day tournament, not a 1 day tournament. I knew I had more days to fish.
Did you realize it was over 37 pounds?
I did. The big fish were biting that day. You don't get many days like that!
What are your top three baits for pre-spawn fishing?
You gotta go with a swimmin' frog, a stick bait and a Rat-L-Trap or rattle-type bait.
Thank you sir, good luck the rest of the season.
