KVD with two

Aug 22, 2013

We start to idle away from KVD when he sets the hook with his long baitcasting rod. He's into a good bass and takes his time with it. After working the bass at boatside for awhile, he swings what looks to be a 4-pounder over the side with his rod. The bass is quickly fixed to a culling float and dropped into his livewell. We move a quarter mile or so to where JVD is fishing. He's drop shot fishing and has four in the box. Two of them will go 4 pounds. "They look terrible," JVD says.

Browning has two

Aug 22, 2013

Stephen Browning's second keeper of the day is reportedly a good one.

KVD hanging tough

Aug 22, 2013

We've been watching KVD casting and winding for several minutes without a fish. That doesn't seem right, given that he's the No. 1 bass angler fishing the No. 1 bass lake in the country.

Dennis Tietje has... a small catch this time

Aug 22, 2013

Dennis had to measure his second keeper. Said it's the smallest fish he's caught all week, even though it's a 14-1/2" smallie. Photo by Bassmaster Marshal Trait Crist.
