Video: Be Safe on the Water!
Kevin VanDam, #1 angler in the world, started boating with his dad at age 3 and thus began his love of boating and fishing. When he's not on the professional fishing circuit, Kevin spends as much time as possible with his family out on the water, instilling the same love and passion for boating and fishing in them that grew in him as a young boy. Kevin's love for the water even inspired him to have a lake on his own property and he remains a huge advocate for and a vocal supporter of boating and fishing (America's No.1 participation sport).
In the world of professional bass fishing, Kevin VanDam is at the pinnacle of his career and the best in the world. He's the complete package - fierce competitor with multiple championships, ambassador to the sport, and family man. VanDam was honored with the first-ever Outdoorsman of the Year ESPY trophy at ESPN's televised awards program in 2002. Van Dam has earned berths in 21 consecutive Classics since he turned full-time pro in 1992, the longest running Classic qualification streak of any active pro. In 223 career Bassmaster events, he's won 20, finished second 11 times and landed in the top 10 an amazing 91 times!
