Bobby Lane lead wire to wire and took his first BASS Elite series victory at Kentucky Lake this past week.
His 97 pounds, 9 ounces was enough to hold off the legnedary Kevin VanDam.
Things were plenty stressful on the final day for Lane. A two hour fog delay kept the anglers at the Paris Landing takeoff. Once the field was finally released Lane had to contend with approximately 120 spectator boats parked around his honey hole. He still managed to catch 16 pounds 15 ounces from the ledge he had fished all week.
VanDam's second place finish helped him to extend his lead in the Toyota Trucks Angler of the Year race. He now leads 2009 Classic Champion Skeet Reese by 15 points.
