KVD THE BEST EVER!

KVD is a heck of a power fisherman, but I don’t recall really seeing his prowess when it comes to finesse. Based in how far aheadhe is on money earned, I can’t say he should worry about it too much though. His style seems to work in his favor well enough. He did throw a spybait for some big lake smallies a few years ago on a soinning rod, but that is about the only time I recall seeing him finesse fish. Wheeler and Martens are guys that can do it all. I think Wheeler is the most well rounded angler out there. The dude just seems to catch them everywhere he goes.

Truly good ya think, or just having a good run ?

When I think of truly awesome pro fishermen the only ones that always pop into my head are Nixon, Clunn, and VanDam.  And I don't think anyone will argue that Clunn has been the best ever, so far as a guy that can do it all, anywhere, and do it consistently.  

I wonder if there will ever be another guy like him.

I know I bought two of those wake shads, and I don't remember losing them, but I couldn't find them with a gun to my head...

I found the one I have, going to put a feathered treble on the back and replace the front hook and give it a shot one of these days.

I think there are some of these guys that will go back to BASS or FLW. This format may just not suit their style. I knew when it went to morning and no dam generation that KVD was done. To bad, but just not what he does 

So these guys are doing MLF full-time and not also doing BASS Elite or FLW?

I’m amazed that more guys didn’t go up river and throw a deep crank

i believe wheeler did with some success 

but that is kvd bread n butter the crank

I think with different rules, some more probably would have. In a best 5 derby, I'm sure deep cranking would play a part this time of year. Deep cranking doesn't get you tons of bites all day tho, it's more of a quality fish kind of deal, so I'd guess these guys just decided that playing the numbers game main lake was a better way to win than targeting bigger, but fewer, bites up in the rivers.

I don't think they can combine the two especially BASS and MLF.  When the top 80 parted ways, I think it was probably like a bad divorce.  Wife got the kids and the house and the guy got to keep a little of his future earnings.💀

They could however fish FLW as it is a pay league and all you have to do is pony up. 

I bet some will do this.

As for Wheeler, the dude is a Complete Hand.  Shallow, deep, flippin brush,  docks it doesn't matter, dude is a total stud with a fishing stick in his hands.  If you watched him throw a spook in the first movie and then watched him flip docks in the encore it is pretty evident that about 1% of fishermen in the world have that type of talent. 

On top of that he knows where they live.

My old neighbor used to fish jackpots with Wheeler back when Jacob was a teenager. Ron told me 3 or 4 years ago that he was going to rule the fishing world, that he was just super talented. Looks like he's right. Kid has to have some kind of work ethic to get that good.
