2007 Champion’s Choice
Lake Champlain water levels are around three feet lower than they were for the Elite Series event in 2006. The anglers aren’t concerned though and still expect an amazing catch over this hot July weekend.

With a second place finish, Skeet Reese inches past KVD for the lead in the Angler of the Year Race. This one will come down to the wire. With another tournament just a week away, KVD will try to get it back within his grasp next weekend in Buffalo, New York.
KVD just a few pounds away

Even though KVD won’t be fishing on the final day, finishing in 27th, he was just a few pounds away from the top 12. This incredibly close tournament will be a tight finish to the end. Stay tuned for updates from KVD as we get them.
Day 2 and 3 good, not great for KVD

Lake Champlain was hard to read under stormy skies, and the debate raged on whether to focus on large mouth, or small mouth bass. The few at the very top of the leaderboard seemed to focus on the largemouth, though coming across a fish above the 4 pound barrier was hard to do. Kevin turned in decent hauls of 15-13 and 13-4 on Friday and Saturday. But Timmy Horton kept the heat on the field consistently averaging 20+ pound outings. Steve Kennedy is going to need a monster final day to win, and keep your eyes on Britt Myers who has been increasing his totals every day to sit at #3.
Day 1 all knotted up—16-3

The top of the leader board is up for grabs on day 2 after a day 1 frenzy. Steve Kennedy and Timmy Horton sit atop the board with solid 21 pound outings, and the rest of the top 30 are all within a few pounds of each other heading into a stormy day 2. The rain clouds are moving in, causing low light conditions which are great for some big fishing. Lake Champlain is just heating up, stay tuned through the weekend.
