BASSTrakk shows Kevin VanDam with 22 pounds, 4 ounces at 10:30 this morning. To repeat what he said upon landing the 6-plus-pounder earlier, "Wow."
And while we're repeating KVD's words, it's worth repeating what he said yesterday about his goal for today: "It's hard to catch 25 pounds here. So if I can catch 23 pounds, and I've two-pound lead..."
Kevin VanDam's lead over Jonathon VanDam was 2 pounds, 7 ounces going into today. BASSTrakk shows him with an 11-pound, 5-ounce lead now over second place Jamie Hartman. With a 3 p.m. check-in, there's a lot of time for KVD to put this tournament even further out of reach. You can bet he won't be ordering pizza. Brandon Palaniuk has the big bag of this tournament so far with 25-0. VanDam's already caught the big bass of the tournament today. No one will be surprised if he adds big bag to his accomplishments on Day 4.
