Anglers fishing all three 2015 Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Southern Opens presented by Allstate are being challenged with devilishly diverse fisheries.
Chris Lane spent his time in the minors then toiled for several years in the big leagues, but now he’s found the juice and has become a feared power hitter on the Bassmaster Elite Series. Lane is batting an impressive .300 in the past 10 regular season Elite events, with last month’s Sabine win completing a triple crown of victories. This week Lane has a home game on Lake Guntersville, where he moved his family five years ago. It was there that his life situation settled, where he developed other aspects of his game and regained his fishing mojo.

Anglers are bracing for a tough, competitive tournament when a couple of keeper bites could make the difference between a big check and a middle-of-the-pack finish.
