Not sure what to think about this...
« on: July 12, 2014, 11:34:08 PM »

Not sure what I think about showing this on the Bassmasters for many reasons...? This is the part of the sport I never like much. What do you think? From:

That happened way too much this weekend at the bass event on Sanford. Seems like alota guys don't care if you are working along a bank. They just slid right in front of us within 50 feet and moved down the bank in the same direction. Did have 1 team ask us if it was ok if they went between us and shore pitching at docks. We were fishing the other side deep in the river channel.

To me it's part of the tournament deal. Ike wasn't fishing this spot earlier in the tournament and he shouldn't try to roll in on guys that have been there every day. KVD just let him know that it wasn't cool. Ike took the tone wrong and KVD disagreed - oh well. Like KVD said, they don't have a good relationship to begin with. I'm sure that's why it was a little heated.

KVD seemed like a douche when I watched the clip.  Why ask Ike a question about whether he thought it was cool and just be direct with him?

It seems as tho he told him he wasn't part of the community because Ike wasn't fishing that area and a few other anglers had been fishing it a lot. When those guys get on big fish the areas to catch them tend to be pretty small. I have no problem with what KVD did, I wouldn't want my spot to get all messed up either

I don't think KVD was wrong, it's just the way he did it that rubbed me the wrong way.

Seemed out of character for him.  Probably why it made the show with the hundreds of hours of video they had.  It got them what they wanted people are talking about it.  WWF fishing is next.
