Kevin VanDam and Davy Hite are best friends on the Elite Series. They travel together and room together all over the country.
While Hite has been renewed this last season, VanDam has been on a tear. There was a time in the early 1990s when Hite was the guy tearing up the competition, winning 8 events and two Angler of the Year titles. The two staunch competitors have an interesting relationship.
In our conversation with Hite yesterday, he talks about VanDam and what makes him special as an angler and a competitor.
