    Went to the Basschamps tournament at Arbuckle Lake, Oklahoma and got a picture with the legend Kevin Vandam this last weekend...

    The local casino held a "Fish & Chips" promotion where the bass fishing tournament portion was during the day and a poker tournament afterwards...

    Thought it was pretty neat to see alot of the big names; fishing and playing poker in Oklahoma..

    Thanks Kenny for sharing. Kevin is a legend for sure. He has done it all in bass fishing. The thing I like about him is that it has never went to his head. He will take time to talk to you and answer questions.

    A couple of years back I watched KVD at a tourney while fishing, it made me tired just watching him.We stuck around for about thirty minutes and he never stopped casting and cranking.He had about 75-100 boats around him.He was talking to the crowd while fishing.This was on Ky lake we started home after doing some crappie fishing. We headed back through the canal back to lake Barkley.Before we got back to the ramp we saw about 20 boats watching another angler so we stopped to see who it was.It was Rick Clunn ,no boats were closer than 150 yards. We might have been there for five minutes.All of a sudden Rick yelled at the group that he can hear us and he wanted silence.Man I swear it was like a golf game I never heard anyone say anything.I know Rick has won alot of tourneys but I never felt the same about him after that.Found out later that KVD won that tournament and yet he was talking with the crowd like it was just a day on the lake.

    I was really hoping to see Mike Iaconelli here too! The guy is a riot! LOL :smile2:
    There were quite a few pros here too... Skeet Reese.. Rick Clunn.. KVD are the ones that I could recognize..

    I must say Rick Clunn's boat looked more like a Cattin' boat than a bass boat.. :eek:oooh: Wish I got a picture of it.. But it looked like a deep V
