FORSYTH, Mo. — Vicious Vision adds a fourth contender in the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GoPro to its roster with the signing of David Kilgore.
Kilgore qualified for the event by winning the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Southern Open presnted by Allstate on Logan Martin in May 2013. David is a perennial contender in the Southern Opens and has been invited to join the Bassmaster Elite Series Tour three times. Living about an hour from the lake, he brings a wealth of knowledge for the Guntersville-based Classic to be held Feb. 21-23, 2014. Kilgore will be running a Vicious Vision-wrapped boat in that event.
“When I talked to the guys at Vicious about their new line of sunglasses, I was immediately intrigued," said Kilgore. "After trying them, I knew I wanted to be a part of the team. In a game of ounces, these glasses could make the difference between seeing that one extra piece of cover or a slightly deeper weed line than some of the guys not using the Xperio UV technology. Everyone in this field can fish and is capable of winning this event, so you have to grab every advantage you can.
"I think these glasses are a true advantage and I can’t wait to get out there and prove it!” added Kilgore.
“David has been fishing for the guys at Vicious Fishing for years" said Dr. Doug Jordan, owner of Vicious Vision, "so when they brought David to me I was already confident in his ability. He is a known threat in that area — especially on Guntersville. Every year he proves himself in the Southern Opens and we don’t expect him to do any less in 2014. Plus, we are very excited to have a boat wrapped in our brand going to the biggest stage in fishing, the Bassmaster Classic."
