Day 4 with Chris Lane at the Plano Bassmaster Elite at Lake St. Clair
The weather was mild but the tension was palpable at the final-day launch on St. Clair.
For anglers wanting to make the run south to Lake Erie this week, they've had to navigate the Detroit River's "Miracle Mile," a stretch of particularly rough water often crowded by freighters, yachts, and various large pleasure boats.
Keith Poche is attempting to make the biggest move up the AOY points standings this week. He came into this event hanging by a thread, ranked 67th. But if Poche finishes in 10th place or better today, he will advance to the AOY Championship. In the process, he will knock Ish Monroe down to 51st place, and out of the field advancing to Sturgeon Bay in two weeks. If you remember how Poche and Monroe started the season in Bass Pro Shops Southern Open at Lake Toho, you might imagine Poche has some extra fire in his belly today.
