Kevin VanDam is one of the most successful professional bass anglers today. Even for someone like myself who doesn’t closely follow professional bass angling, I’m well aware of who he is. I had the good fortune of running into Kevin at the ICAST show in Las Vegas a couple years ago. I was writing an article about the Best In Show products at the show and talked to Kevin about the new offering from Humminbird. I found him to be very friendly and a pleasure to talk to.

In this video, he goes on camera with a young angler to talk about a new crankbait from Strike King. The encounter turns into an impromptu full-length primer on crankbait fishing. Nice video, kid. Enjoy.
