We ran a poll on Bassmaster.com last week that was very interesting to me. It went like this:
Who would you LIKE to see win Toyota Tundra Angler of the Year?
A. Rick Clunn 16%
B. Charlie Hartley 15%
C. Michael Iaconelli 9%
D. Gerald Swindle 11%
E. Kevin VanDam 49%
I selected the answer choices not based on how well they're doing this season, but on personality types. Clunn gave me an older pro well known for his cerebral approach to the sport. Hartley is a classic underdog, an Everyman. Ike is the edgy guy taking things in a new direction. Swindle is the class clown. VanDam is the Type-A personality.
