A Day With KVD On Wheeler and What I Learned

By Christopher Tate

First, to let everyone know, I have never been a Marshal for the Elite Series before the Wheeler Tournament. I signed up to be a Marshal using the Bassmaster.com website (at the cost of $125). A random drawing was held the night before the Elite Tournament for pairing with one of the competing Elite anglers. I was totally shocked and excited to be drawn as a Marshal for the greatest angler on the Elite Series-Kevin VanDam, or “KVD”.

John Crews Soars Into Elite Series Lead On Wheeler Lake

DECATUR, Ala. — By nature, fishermen can be storytellers, and the top-shelf professional anglers who make up the Bassmaster Elite Series are no exception. Before the tournament began, the vast majority of the 108-angler field claimed the three official practice days were very unproductive — if not downright difficult.

It’s standard procedure for tournament anglers to hold their cards close to their chest, especially during the days leading up to official competition. However, practice was certainly difficult for some at the Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Elite at Wheeler Lake.
