Bobby Lane admits that he has a checkered past with the Harris Chain of Lakes. But during his first day of competition in the Favorite Fishing Stage Three Presented by Bass Cat Boats, he dominated the field of 40 MLF pros and ended on top of SCORETRACKER® with 68 pounds, 4 ounces.

When Group B returns to the Harris Chain on Monday for Qualifying Day 2, weights from Day 1 will carry over and the angler who wins the round will advance straight to the Championship Round. Lane is in a good position to earn the automatic advancement, he has more than a 20-pound lead over second-place David Walker.
