24-Month Points History
This chart represents the points earned for each of the 28 events Chris has participated in over the past 24 months.
Chris is averaging 654.706 points per event over the past 24 months and 607.828 points per event over the past 12 months, for a generally down trend.
Trends: Our trend feature compares an angler's average points from the prior 24 months to the average points from the prior 12 months to establish whether the angler's recent performance exceeds or falls behind that of a longer span. If the recent average is within 2.5% of the average for the longer period , we consider the angler's performance to be steady, as indicated by an almost equals to sign.

We said if anyone had a chance at ending the revolving door at No. 1 it was Kevin VanDam.
Well, he’s finally made his move in the Majors World Ranking.
When Bass Rankings launched, people were beside themselves that KVD was ranked third. Our argument (and really, it wasn’t an argument. Just facts) was that his poor beginning to the 2010 season was weighing him down. However, with the 2010 Clear Lake event dropping last week (VanDam’s worst tournament in the last two years), combined with his eighth at Lake Okeechobee this past weekend, VanDam jumped from third to firmly into the No. 1 position, with his best time of year about to begin.

We couldn’t believe it, but it’s 100-percent true. It’s been nearly 10 years since the last time the Elite Series has been to Lake Okeechobee.
Actually, the Elite Series has never been down there, because BASS didn’t call the tour that back in 2003. That’s how long it’s been.
So how do you go about predicting favorites on a body of water that 1) is notorious for having temperamental fish 2) many pros haven’t fished competitively on in nearly a decade 3) most pros know well? We’re glad you asked.

Talk about a double-edged sword.
On one hand, it’s nice to see the Major tours heading to new venues like Hartwell and the St. Johns River. On the other, it makes it a tough task to pattern pros with so little data (only three Major or Minor events have been held on the St. Johns since 2000).
But we will try our best. So let’s dive into the BASS Elites Series on the St. Johns River.

Winning the Bassmaster Classic has a way of accelerating a pro’s career.
In the case of Chris Lane, he may not have needed the extra horsepower. His career was already speeding up in the right direction.
While few if any had Lane as a favorite heading down to the Classic at the Red River, according to the numbers, perhaps we all should have. After taking his lumps his first five years on the BASS Elite Series, Lane has emerged as one of the hottest pros in the sport, even before his Classic victory.
It’s time to take a look at the rise of Lane from punching bag to champion.
