Kevin VanDam and family had a successful hunt on a recent trip to a private lease in south Texas.
Sometimes it’s fun to do something a little off the beaten path, and that’s exactly what I did this week.
Did our family have a good time last Monday evening! Nicholas, Jackson and my nephew Steve fished a local tournament here with my old bass club. It's a typical Monday night event, about 3 1/2 hours long with most of the club members qualifying as regulars.
In this photo gallery, you'll find images from Elite Night at the 2009 Bassmaster Classic on the Red River, near Shreveport, Louisiana.
After winning the 2005 Bassmaster Classic, Kevin VanDam and family were honored by Walt Disney World Resort.
"I have been totally shocked at the magnitude of what winning the Classic has meant." VanDam says. "Without a doubt, bass fishing is far more mainstream than ever before."
