Lanier, which was named after American poet Sidney Lanier, last held a B.A.S.S. event in 2006. That Southern Open was won by Ryan Coleman with 36 pounds, 10 ounces.
Go back another decade to the 1990s, when Lanier was a familiar venue for Georgia Invitationals and Georgia Top 100s. A number of familiar names won events here, including O.T. Fears, Mickey Bruce (twice), Tom Mann Jr., Kevin VanDam, Gary Klein and Roland Martin.
