With an amazing 90 lbs. 3 oz. of smallmouth bass, BASS Elite Pro Kevin VanDam demonstrated how fantastic a fishery NY’s St. Lawrence River is as he won the July 20-23 BASS Bassmaster Elite tournament out of Waddington, NY. VanDam’s total weight was one of the heaviest ever recorded by an Elite Series Angler weighing in only smallmouth bass. The great success of the BASS pros further justifies the St. Lawrence’s position in the top 12 bass waters in the nation.
