JVD is still catching 'em

11:38 am EDT, Aug 11, 2013 | By Steve Wright

Jonathan VanDam is still catching fish, but nothing that has helped him lately. It's doubtful he'll leave this area where he has been all day. He knows there are big fish here. In fact, he just saw one. As JVD was reeling in his last fish, he said, "It's got a giant [swimming] with it!"

VanDam said this is where he, Pipkens and Hawk have been all week. And the area is big enough that there haven't been any turf wars. VanDam confirmed that he and Pipkens were just visiting earlier, no problems.

VanDam said he lost two big ones early this morning on the Coffee Tube, then switched to the Dream Shot and started putting them in the boat. The two Strike King soft plastics have been his main lures this week.
