The greatest angler of all-time--Kevin Vandam. Vandam has won the Bassmaster Classic 4 times, Bassmaster AOY 7 times, FLW AOY once, and has amassed close to $6 million in career earnings. A disappointed KVD weighed over 23 pounds.
Day one of what will perhaps be called the greatest smallmouth bass tournaments of all-time. Over half the field weighed more than 20 pounds in rough conditions on Lake Mille Lacs. Mille Lacs is the finest smallmouth fishery in the world, and it showed, with bag after bag of beastly brown bass brought to the scale.
