Chris Lane Leads Wire-to-Wire
Unforgiving Sabine River yields Lane's seventh BASS title
Amassing his seventh B.A.S.S. title, Chris Lane of Guntersville, Ala., totaled 50 pounds even over the four-day B.A.S.S. Elite Series event on the Sabine River system this past weekend. He won the event by a margin four pounds. Despite harsh, rainy conditions, Lane punched his ticket to the 2016 Bassmaster Classic on Grand Lake O' the Cherokees.
Lane utilized the strength and versatility of Stren 50-pound Braid to secure victory. Lane said, "The line is the immediate connection between you and the fish. That is why I chose Stren. Whenever you target fish in heavy cover the line can't fail."
"This event was tougher than the last time we visited the Sabine," said Lane. "I like this style of fishing. I'm pretty used to tough conditions, but when quality bites are difficult to come by it definitely tests your mettle. It is a great feeling to get a ticket punched to next year's Classic early, but there is a bunch of work to do. The season has only begun."
Next up for the Elite Series is the April 9-12 on Lake Guntersville, Ala. This also happens to be Lane's home waters.
