VanDam's worst finish here? Third place

Jun 7, 2015

BASSTrakk currently shows Kevin VanDam in third place. Incredibly, that would match VanDam's worst performance in an Elite Series event at Kentucky Lake.   He was well aware of those past performances here when he said at yesterday's weigh-in, "The worst I've ever done here is third. So I'm going to try to at least do that. After not going to the Classic last year, I want to have a strong finish to the season."   KVD won here in 2010 and 2008. He was second in 2009. He was third in 2006.

Evers' epic flurry continues

Jun 7, 2015

And the fish are getting bigger.    Edwin Evers just boated bass No. 13 in his flurry. All have come in the past 30 minutes. All from the same spot.   This one was at least 4-8. Our panel of judges, sitting 30 yards from the action, believe he has at least 21-8 in his livewell. There's nothing in his livewell less than 4 pounds.  

Mercer shows off bizarre chops on LIVE

Jun 7, 2015

Dave Mercer’s latest LIVE on-the-water report made him look a bit like Andrew Zimmern of TV show Bizarre Foods. Sure, they sport the same hairstyle, and now probably have eaten similar oddities.   Mercer had found a cicada, a big-eyed, creepy looking and sounding bug, and had it on his finger to show the world what kind of food the fish might be feeding on. Different Cicadas emerge from the ground every 13 or 17 years, and Mercer found a “new friend,” even letting it crawl on his nose.
