See what JVD did on Day Four to win the Green Bay Challenge.
The pros changed it up today, with several seeking out other spots when their good ones seemed depleted.
The young pro started the day in the lead. Fishing was slow for him in the morning, but it picked up at midday.
Jonathon VanDam just put another 4 1/2-pounder in the boat. "We're going to make them earn it," said VanDam about his fellow competitors for the Green Bay Challenge title. He said he is going to cull his one small fish, then head to Green Bay. We think he has 21 pounds now, minimum.
Jonathon VanDam just missed one he claimed was as big as the TV camera. That's pretty big! He is literally stalking these fish right now.
James Overstreet and I are watching one incredible show. We would compare Jonathon VanDam right now to a kingfisher wearing Strike King polarized glasses, looking in the shallows, waiting to strike. According to VanDam, there are plenty of fish to get this job done.
Earlier today I did a video saying I felt Jonathon VanDam was spinning out. Well, I need to give him some credit now. We have seen him struggle with missed opportunities and yet now we are seeing a true professional just one fish away from a possible victory. Two hours left and he is on some giants!
Aaron Martens has 16 pounds in his livewell now.
No matter what happens today, Dean Rojas is on a roll. Rojas has now made four final-day Elite Series cuts this season, starting the season with an 11th-place finish on Florida's St. Johns River, then missing two straight top 50 cuts before rebounding to finish fourth at Tennessee's Douglas Lake, 38th at Toledo Bend Reservoir and eighth at La Crosse.
