Once Upon a Time in the King’s Court

Although Elvis has left the building, Presley is still reverently called the King of Rock ‘n Roll. At the 2011 Bassmaster Classic in New Orleans, some of his competitors gave tribute to the winner Kevin VanDam (center left) by calling KVD the King and wondering doubtfully if there is anyone who can challenge him for bass shing’s throne? In this same small area, Aaron Martens (2nd place) and Derek Remitz (3rd place) shed all three days. Over KVD’s left shoulder is Brandon Palaniuk (4th place). Boyd Duckett (6th place) wasn’t all that far from the group on Day Three when Duckett cracked the biggest single sack in the Classic. To his majesty’s right is Scott Rook (7th place). Below KVD’s royal sceptor of a shing rod lies Jason Williamson.
