The company’s pro staff is charged with the responsibility of helping design the lures they fish with and win tournaments with to promote the Strike King brand.” We asked Kevin VanDam how involved is he and the other Strike King pros in bringing new lures to the marketplace, and what’s the role of the Strike King pros as lure developers?
