KVD Comeback? We ask Zona! “Blue Ridge Brawl” preview

ESPN2's Mark Zona joins Lazy Ike and Rich to preview the Bassmaster Elite Series “Blue Ridge Brawl,” set for April 15-18 on Virginia’s Smith Mountain Lake, site of a KVD victory in 2009. More than 200 points behind Skeet Reese in Toyota Tundra Angler of the Year race, can King Kong KVD climb back to the top with a repeat performance on Smith Mountain Lake? The Bassmasters will be fishing the lake about 10 days earlier than they did last year. With water temps at about 60 degrees this week, the bass might be moving up shallow to spawn. Then again, maybe they won’t. Following a long, cold winter that atypically dumped snow all over the South, most spawns predicted to happen in professional bass tournaments this season did not materialize. Rich sticks with KVD and Skeet Reese, while Lazy Ike takes KVD and The Hack Attack, Greg Hackney. Yeah, yeah … those are the easy picks. Who else should you put on your roster? Tune in and find out! Next week, we'll air our interview with Zona about his "World's Greatest Fishing Show."

    Thanks for the comment. I agree on all points about Zona! We have more from that interview on the production spool right now. Should be posting it in a couple of days — much more talk about all his antics on “World’s Greatest Fishing Show.” If you like bass fishing shows, check out the sneak preview for our new web TV show “All About Bass” … Thanks for listening! — Lazy Ike
