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.

I’m writing this one a little early so I don’t know who won the Bassmaster Classic Wild Card. We do know who didn’t, however. That would be me.
I'm an angler, so of course I want to win. But I'm also a writer, so I appreciate a good story. No good story ever began with “He won.”
