I met Bud Pruitt a few years back.  I didnt know who he was but we got to talking and i knew he was from down south right away.  He was very nice, and he was telling me some secret stuff about Lake Erie.

As it turns out he was the guest MC for the Wonderland Tournament and when it was my turn to go up on stage, he talked me up big and told those other guys to watch out for me in the years to come.  that made me feel pretty cool.  Plus, its nice that he would just talk to a nobody like that.  especially before a big tournament.  I see some of the more famous guys sometimes at events, ABA always gets a well known pro at the weigh down at nationals.  IT always seems like those guys only talk to the leaders, or the well known locals.

Kevin Vida is cool too.  I talked to him a few times at BFL tournaments.  He is a funny guy.  a lot of people talked bad about him like he was arrogant or something, but he was the most down to earth guy i seen there, well him and Lt Dan. 

I guess if i had to pick a favorite tho, it would have to be Van Dam.  I mean if i could pick one persone to fish with out of all of them, i would pick him hands down.  Second place would be Aaron Martens.  He is a bad mofo too.

I've never known Kevin Vida to be anything but very nice and friendly.

Kevin Vida has fished our Sanford Lake Charity Open Tournament (www.teambass.net) each of the last 4 or 5 years.  He's always been a stand up guy and was critical in helping us recognize the guys cheating (per archived post)  I see he will be speaking at a WalMart down south in a week or two, sometimes you forget he's as big in the sport as he is.  By the way he still hasn't pulled a check from one of our tournaments!!  8)

I've only met Vida one time and he was a nice guy.  It was impressive a few years ago in the everstart to see the fish he pulled out of the river.  I also saw Woo a few years back at Bassmater U, I took more notes during his seminar than anyone else.  I thought he did a good job of promoting his sponsors while still giving a good seminar.  Some of those guys just show up and talk about their sponsors and it gets old real fast.

It's a fine line to walk, for sure.

I guess Kevin is at Lake Murray right now getting ready for the latest event. Hopefully, he whacks 'em (he has had some real good big tournaments - maybe he's laying off of them at Sandford??? - or you guys are just too rough on him ;)).
