Tour Review

Why i love the KVD Big Bass Classic -- KVD

The KVD Big Bass Classic is really exciting for me. It’s the sort of thing that gets anglers involved in our sport at the grass roots level. There are winners on an hourly, daily and overall basis. It’s supported by many of the same sponsors who support me and BASS tournaments at all levels. Check it out if you’re interested at

It’s important that we recognize things like this. Our sponsors are the companies that keep us out on the water fishing, and that make innovation possible. Let’s face it, if we didn’t have financial support from them bass fishing would be very different than it is now. That’s for sure. (Different means we’d be catching fewer fish.)

They are the ones who finance and promote new products; products that help us catch more bass. We all — professionals and amateurs alike — benefit from their contributions.
