Country music superstar Luke Bryan is a busy man these days, but he still finds time for a little fun here and there.
Bryan recently spent some time on the water participating in one of his favorite activities and that is fishing. The country singer and songwriter didn’t go alone either as he had premier sportsman Kevin VanDam along for the ride. The two friends appear to have found some success on the water in their fishing trip.
Bryan took to social media for a little humble bragging about his biggest catch of the day. With VanDam by his side, the singer holds up the supersize fish for the photo op. He is quick to give his fishing partner the credit for reeling the monster bass.
“Thanks Kevin VanDam Fishing for a great day on the water,” Bryan says in the post’s caption space. “So fun learning from you buddy.”
