Before I give my "vote for me" speech, I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Kevin VanDam on winning the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year title again.
I was reading some of the Bassmaster.com stories on the events of the Arkansas River Elite Series Diamond Drive, and I got fired up!
Not that bass fishing doesn’t have him, it just makes a good title.
When things appeared dismal, David Walker broke through with first tournament victory
Even before the Bassmaster Elite Series season finale began last week, Kevin VanDam garnered an award.
Powered only by his trolling motor, Randy Howell piloted his boat on windy Wheeler Lake for four miles to reach the support crew that could repair his boat’s gearing.
On stage last Saturday during the Bassmaster Elite Series event in Decatur, Ala., not far from his home, Tim Horton was so moved he stopped speaking.
J. Todd Tucker didn’t miss a beat. He launched his campaign the day before fans were invited to begin voting June 21 for the final four anglers who will compete in the Toyota Trucks All-Star Week.
This win takes a huge weight off of my shoulders. I don’t have to crunch numbers or ask what if anymore. I’m in.
I wound up ninth place in Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year points, and only the Top 8 are automatically entered into All-Star Week. However, I’m not sunk yet.
