The total catch? 50 pounds. The total winnings? $103,000.
Just seconds before Chris Lane reeled in his tournament winning bass he said, “Just one more and it’ll be one hundred grand.” Chris believed in himself and his talent.

Sabine River is 510 miles long located in Texas and Louisiana. Chris Lane led on day one and by day two had five “keepers”, but he never stopped searching for the bigger fish, despite leading the tournament.
At some points it looked like Chris was driving a race car, rather than his boat. His passion is well-known throughout the pros and fans alike.
It’s no wonder Chris is a Bassmaster Elite superstar, especially when you look at the words that are taped inside his windshield, “Focus…Find…Figure Out…Enjoy.”
In 142 tournaments, Chris has finished in first place 7 times, finished in the top ten 25 times, and finished in the top fifty 91 times.
The man from Guntersville, AL is certainly making his wife and four children proud.
