New day dawns for KVD

It's cooler and there's a bit more wind than yesterday, which should really play to KVD's big crankbait, offshore pattern. He said that yesterday was a grind and one of the toughest days of his career.

It was hot and flat yesterday, and the four-time Classic champion threw a Strike King 10XD on underwater humps and points. But he worked all day for only five keeper bites, which was enough to put him over 5 pounds ahead of Chris Lane who's in second place.

The forecast isn't calling for much win, but on Toledo Bend, a little can be a lot.

He dropped a small keeper into his livewell just a few minutes ago, getting his day off on the right foot. If can manage at least 17 pounds today, he'll likely clench his 21st victory.
