Wow, we have an interesting straw poll going on in the comments section below. I just found particulars on the Toyota Trucks All-Star Week and want to relay them to you all. Voting won’t start until June 21, this Tuesday, but 12 of you are going to be awfully pleased.

In the Toyota Trucks All-Star Week Fan Favorite Angler Sweepstakes, of the Bassmaster fans who voted, 12 will be randomly selected and paired to virtually compete with the 12 Elite Series anglers. The “virtual competitors” will follow their angler daily on Bassmaster.com, and the fan paired with the eventual winner will win a fully rigged Triton 18XS boat with a Mercury 150 Optimax engine.

All 12 fan finalists will win a prize pack from Berkley and Havoc worth about $80, so there’s some incentive to vote. (I think you’re allowed to vote once a day from June 21 to July 10.)

The four Toyota Trucks All-Star Fan Favorite Anglers and the 12 fan finalists will be announced live on Bassmaster.com July 13.

The 12 anglers will compete July 23-24 at Lake Jordan, Wetumpka, Ala., with the bottom four to be eliminated. The eight advancing finalists will be seeded in a bracket-style head-to-head tournament July 29-31 on the Alabama River out of Montgomery, Ala., with the winner taking the $100,000 purse.

Not sure yet. Either Skeet, Hackney or Martens
I think Martens would have the best shot at winning.

Surprised to see so many guys voting BP. IMO he needs to get a couple years under his belt before he’s thrown into the “all-star” status.

Uhh, what about KVD!  Next Skeet, Evers, and finally…wait for it…Rick Clunn.  I’d like to see Clunn against a smaller field.  Plus, I don’t want to see a bunch of flippin’ and fairy wandin’.

Evers is already in

The list of eight initial qualifiers was topped by Kevin VanDam of Kalamazoo, Mich., newly crowned 2011 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year. The other seven set for the postseason were Edwin Evers, Talala, Okla.; Gerald Swindle, Warrior, Ala.; Ott DeFoe, Knoxville, Tenn.; Steve Kennedy, Auburn, Ala.; Terry Scroggins, San Mateo, Fla.; Casey Ashley, Donalds, S.C.; and Davy Hite, Ninety Six, S.C.

Zona did an interview with KVD and He was one of his picks…So that carries some weight.. at least wtih me it does.

Seems there are in “groups” of four - you can only pick one person from each group

You’ll have to see if two of your picks are in the same group (like mine were for group 4 downer)

I voted for Ike, and Rojas too. I also picked Jeff Kriet, and Boyd Duckett. I know those two don’t have the flash as some of the other guys, but I do think that both of them are solid anglers.

Hope you catch your biggest bass ever on your next fishing trip.

I voted for:
Region 1 - Mike Iconelli
Region 2 - JVD
Region 3 - Russ Lane
Region 4 - Skeet Reese

I’m not a big fan of any of the guys in Region 2 so I pick JVD.  Russ Lane is local so he should do good.  He won last years event on Lake Jordan.  Skeet had a melt down last year when they were here so he should get a chance at a redo.  And for Mike…......well, Mike just needs a break somewhere to get his mojo back.  He has lost his mojo.  I think KVD stole it.  I think KVD stole every body’s mojo.  KVD has got some serious mojo goin’.
