Massachusetts resident David Cioppa was the winner of Humminbird's "VanDam Your Boat" promotion and will receive the same Humminbird electronics that Kevin VanDam used to win his third straight Bass Angler of the Year title.

Cioppa's name was randomly selected from more than 218,000 entries.

"Given Kevin's great popularity, we knew having him associated with this promotion would make it highly successful," Humminbird senior business director Jeff Davison said in a statement. "The large number of entrants also demonstrates how popular Humminbird products and Side Imaging technology have become with anglers."

Johnson Outdoors Marine Electronics Inc. consists of the Humminbird, Geonav, Minn Kota and Cannon brands.
