KVD practicing now?

Kevin VanDam is in the lead according to BASSTrakk right now with a strong 24 pounds. That is probably going to hold on Day 1, but for sure keep in the Top 3 or 4. He's spending time checking spots, graphing structure looking for another backup pattern. It's always good to have a few contingency plans.

He spent about ten minutes fishing a particular spot and caught a fish on every cast, but most of them were white bass--those don't weigh.

KVD has been quiet over the last two seasons, but he smells blood in the water now. Could this be the resurgence of the legend?

It's Day 1, time will tell.
