Win a Day on the Lake with Shaw Grigsby

In a sport that has a lot of good guys --- tournament bass fishing --- Shaw Grigsby is one of the best. That’s why I encourage you to enter a photo/essay contest for the chance to go fishing with the Florida pro.

Winner gets a trip of three days and two nights to Florida for two to fish with Shaw on one of his favorite lakes. (That's not Shaw in the photo. It's the Activist Angler. See last paragraph.)

Contest is sponsored by Markel, Shaw’s insurance company and the official insurance partner of TakeMeFishing.org.

To enter, all you have to do is upload a photo of you and your boat that represents your favorite fishing or boating spot, and accompany it with an essay of 25 words or less on why this is your ideal spot.

Photo above is one of my favorite places for bass fishing --- Mexico, especially Billy Chapman’s Anglers Inn at Lake El Salto. This photo was taken at Lake Mateos, where Billy also has a resort. Right now, he’s preparing his Amazon peacock bass fishing operation for the coming season. Can’t wait to get down there with him.

B.A.S.S. Pros Still Are the Good Guys

I've been impressed with the "quality" of those who bass fishing professionally since I started attending Bassmaster Classics back in the mid 1980s and met guys like Shaw Grigsby, Denny Brauer, Stacey King, and Rick Clunn. And I'm not talking about their fishing ability.
 
 
I'm talking about their character, their generosity, and their willingness to do good works. I still remember fondly when I asked Shaw to help with a kids' camp in Mississippi and he accepted without hesitation.
 
I'm happy to know that the "quality" still is there today --- and Shaw still is hanging in there --- as BASS reports below about a visit by some pros to Tulane Hospital for Children:
