Kevin Van Dam Kevin Van Dam won his fifth Angler of the Year award.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Wednesday, we have a special chat when newly crowned Angler of the Year Kevin VanDam stops by to chat about his fifth career title.

VanDam won the title after winning the season's final event in Montgomery, Ala. by catching 10 bass in two days, totaling 30 pounds, 6 ounces. Then, Skeet Reese, who entered the season's final event in first place, finished sixth, giving VanDam enough points to sneak past Reese in the final points standings.

VanDam, a Kalamazoo, Mich. native, has been fishing professionally since 1990 and is one of the most decorated anglers in history. He won the B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year award during his first year on the pro circuit in 1992. He also earned the Outdoor Sportsman of the Year by ESPN (2002) and received his first ESPY trophy.

Send your questions now and join VanDam at 3:30 p.m. ET!
