Notes from the 2015 Bass Pro Shops Southern Open #1 field.
See how Daniel Lanier and Richard Howes' day went down on Lake Toho!
Win, lose or an even draw – that’s what two pro anglers had to deal with on what would have been the final day of the Bass Pro Shops Southern Open.
Redemption is sweet, and Daniel Lanier of Winter Springs, Fla., almost tasted it today on the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes.
From 29th to first place, Rick Howes leads the way into the final round of the Southern Opens.
Daniel Lanier's 9-pound, 4-ounce lead at the end of Day 1 on the Kissimmee Chain is the biggest I can recall. To find a bigger gap you have to go back to a 10-bass or even 15-bass limit.
The story of the day was a fairly tight-lipped fishery as the Southern Open began on Lake Tohopekaliga in central Florida.
Harris Chain boasts some "Bassquatch" at the years' first Bass Pro Shops Southern Open final weigh-in.
