HIGHLIGHTS: Chris Lane's Drainage Pipe Run

EUFAULA, Ala. - It's always important to get off to a good start in Major League Fishing, and Chris Lane showed us exactly why in the very first period of Stage One of the 2020 Bass Pro Tour.

The Alabama pro rolled up to a drainage pipe churning water into Lake Eufaula, Power-Poled down and rattled off impressive bass after impressive bass. Check out this highlight reel as Lane jumps out to a commanding lead in the first Qualifying Round of the 2020 season.
