St. Johns and the Century Club

No angler has ever reached the 100-pound mark (four-day event and five-bass limit) at the St. Johns River. Chris Lane needs just 1-4 to exceed the heaviest catch ever recorded at the St. Johns in the 4-day/5-bass limit era. That record (77-1) was set by Edwin Evers in 2011. If Lane breaks the 100-pound mark, the St. Johns River becomes the eighth venue to produce a Century Club entry. The others are Falcon Lake, Clear Lake, Lake Amistad, Santee Cooper, Lake Guntersville, the Kissimmee Chain and Lake Okeechobee. If Lane breaks the mark, Florida will be the only state with three Century Club venues (Texas has two).
