KVD streak on the line

May 10, 2013

Even the best of all time have a bad tournament now and again, but it’s been a long time since Kevin VanDam missed the first cut in an Elite Series tournament.   You have to go back more than three years to find the last time KVD failed to earn a check in an Elite event. He finished 57th at Pickwick Lake in 2010. Since then, he’s been in the money a record 24 straight times. That string is in jeopardy today.

"Sick" from school

May 10, 2013

The kind of water flowing out of the dam has the locals out. While I watched Kennedy, 12-year old Shane McGinty was casting into the current. He had a Scrounger rigged up on a Y-rig with some slip sinkers to get it down in the current. Pretty ingenious. But I didn't see him catch one I did ask him why he wasn't in school? "I was sick this morning," he said. "But I'm better now." "Uh-huh" was all I could come up with.

With a vengeance

May 10, 2013

The Coosa River is flowing with a vengeance thanks to all that rain last week we had to deal with at West Point. We've been watching guys come and go from the dam. They are jockeying around each other hitting eddies as the water pours over the dam. I watched Steve Kennedy catch one across the river. It looked to be a good chunk. He didn't cull with it and it's too far to find out what he has. But at the minute that's the only keeper I've seen boxed.

We just stumbled on JVD

May 10, 2013

We just happened upon JVD, who is just downriver from the Union Station Train Shed, where the weigh-in will take place later today. Looks like it's been a rough day for the youngster. He said he has a couple fish but that it's been tougher today on him. "I think a lot of the spots are worn out today," he offered. Farther down the Alabama we go.
