A little more about limit streaks

KVD has the record for limiting 57 competition days in a row. On the bad side of that stat is Brent Broderick, who once went eight consecutive competition days without catching a 5-bass limit in 2011.


The next longest streak of limit futility belongs to Grant Goldbeck, who went seven straight competition days without getting to cull, also in 2011. Only three other anglers have gone as long as six competition days in a row without a limit — Jon Bondy, Boyd Duckett and Jeff Reynolds.


These streaks of no limits invariably happen late in the tournament season, when the weather gets hot and the fishing gets tougher. Having even two consecutive days without a limit in the early part of the season is very rare. That's when the bass are up and eating and maybe even spawning. Everyone catches them then.
