Fast Lane

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.

Data Overload: Bassmaster Classic

Every tournament has its favorites to win. Some look at local pros as the favorites. Others go by past performances. Yet others simply go on hunches.

We go by numbers, and we have plenty of them. Hence the series “Data Overload.”

Before every Majors event, we want to use our database of stats to figure out who really are the favorites at any given event. We want to know if locals really hold the edge, or if time of year makes a difference with certain pros. We don’t want opinions. Just stats.

Are you ready? Then let’s start crunching for the Bassmaster Classic.

Movers & Shakers: Minors Update, Classic Preparation

Last week was a busy one. The next two will be worse.

In the last week we had a new No. 1 angler in the world (Kevin VanDam), some major shifting in the Majors World Ranking and now, we’re only days away from the Bassmaster Classic.

Before we talk about our Classic coverage, we did want to touch upon the Bass Open from a week ago. With all the chaos following the FLW Tour Open at Okeechobee, the Central Open at Lewisville kind of got lost. So we wanted to find it. It is a Movers & Shakers article after all.

That means, for the first time since Bass Rankings’ launch, VanDam is the No. 1-ranked angler in the world.

The Best on the Best

Choke Canyon. Amistad. Falcon.

Each lake by itself is one of the top bass fishing destinations in the country. Combined, they represent the best chain of lakes in the world right now.

No other river chain offers the chance to catch as many or as big a fish as the triple threat running up and down the Rio Grande River. They are the best of the best.

So after the FLW EverStart last weekend, we wanted to know who was the best on the best.

Movers & Shakers: Steady Week for Minors

Don’t worry Minors anglers. We didn’t forget about you.

In Monday’s Movers & Shakers article, we focused solely on the Majors instead of the usual double duty. But when a new No. 1 Majors angler in the world is crowned, we had to devote the entire article to Mark Rose.

Now, it’s the Minors’ turn.

Best in the Sunshine State

Considering Chris Lane and Brandon Medlock have each won two season openers in the last three seasons, we started thinking about the best anglers in the state of Florida. Not necessarily guys who live there, but guys who excel in those early season events in the Sunshine State. So we decided to look into it.
