Finally, five for KVD

Kevin VanDam has tried a variety of tactics to fill out his limit, and the latest switch finally paid off. The 3 1/2-pounder latched onto a hardbait, one with Kevin's name on it, most likely. The fish should give him 38 pounds and move him into the top 20 at this point. 

"I lost a big one just now," he told me a few minutes later. "That's three big ones I've lost this morning. It's incredible how hard these fish fight!"
