BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) -- Chris Lane has a narrow lead after two days of the Bassmaster Classic.
Lane of Guntersville, Ala., brought in 19 pounds and four ounces of bass on the Red River on Saturday to run his total to 35 pounds, eight ounces overall, one pound better than Greg Vinson of Watumpka, Ala.
Alton Jones of Woodway, Texas, Lane's brother, Bobby, of Lakeland, Fla., and Edwin Evers of Talala, Okla., round out the top five.
The competition ends on Sunday. The winner takes home $500,000, while second place is worth $45,000.
Day 1 leader Keith Poche fell to 10th place after an 11-8 haul Saturday. The native of Natchitoches, La., located 70 miles south of here, is a little more than six pounds behind Chris Lane.
The top 14 anglers are within eight pounds of the lead.
Kevin VanDam's run at a three-peat and a record fifth Classic title is in serious danger. The Kalamazoo, Mich., resident is mired in 18th place with a 24-15 total.
Takahiro Omori, the 2004 Classic champion, was the final angler to make the cut at 23-12. Michael Iaconelli, the 2003 winner, tied Omori's total, but lost the third tiebreaker (Omori had the biggest single-day catch -- 13-14 on Friday).
Denny Brauer, who won the Classic in 1998, also missed the cut.
