Monday Trivia – KVD’s Records (Sept. 8, 2014)

It seems like all the talk of the bass fishing world these past 2 weeks has been centered around KVD stories. Understandably, this is due to the fact that for the first time in 24 years, KVD has failed to qualify for the Bassmaster Classic.

So given all the Vandam Internet chatter going on, we’ll jump into the mix with this week’s trivia contest, focusing on records and streaks held or challenged by Kevin. To win all the Yamamoto’s this week, you’ll need to brush up on your KVD stats and answer the following 4 questions correctly.

  1. As just mentioned, KVD’s streak of 24 straight Classics is coming to an end. However, that is only the second longest Classic streak in the books. Who holds the record, and how many consecutive Classics did that angler qualify for?
  2. One record Kevin holds is for the most consecutive limits weighed in during Bassmaster events. That record was 57 consecutive tournament days of 5-fish limits. Who is his counterpart (for the same record) over on the FLW side, and how many consecutive limits did he weigh in (hint: that streak ended in 2014)?
  3. Another record KVD holds is for the most consecutive Angler-of-the-Year awards, that being 4 titles garnered between 2008-2011. Who holds the record for the second most consecutive AOY awards (3 in a row)?
  4. Finally, Kevin holds the record for most consecutive in-the-money finishes on the Elite series, making that initial cut and guaranteeing himself a check. What is that record [how many (# of) consecutive events]?

Answers and a winner will be announced later this week (Thursday).
