KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Shaw Grigsby vividly remembers his first B.A.S.S. tournament experience on Lake Tohopekaliga, site of this week’s 2014 Bass Pro Shops Southern Open #1 presented by Allstate. On Day One of the 1982 B.A.S.S. Florida Invitational his partner would be none other than Forrest L. Wood, the founder and president of Ranger Boats. Back then, Wood competed on the tour and qualified twice for the Bassmaster Classic. “I went to sleep the night before thinking about how awesome it will be to fish with him,” recalled Grigsby.

There are six Bassmaster Classic spots and one invitation to the Bassmaster Elite Series up for grabs at this week’s B.A.S.S. Nation Championship. This is a big tournament —as big as it gets for amateur anglers. It was this tournament that started my love for competitive bass fishing.
