From BoatUS

ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 5, 2011 -- He’s outspoken and enjoys watching Caddyshack and reruns of South Park. He’s also a frustrated weatherman, a wanna-be bounty hunter, and listens to Men at Work. But most importantly, he’s the self-proclaimed “knucklehead” host of TV’s Bassmaster Elite Series and hosts his own “Awesome” national TV fishing show that airs every Friday at 8 p.m.

Fishing legends such as Kevin VanDam and Bill Dance have experienced a day on the water with this acclaimed and irreverent television fishing show personality. Now you too can win a fishing trip with Mark Zona, known as the “Z-Train,” simply by becoming a BoatUS Angler member at However, anglers must join by the contest entry deadline of July 31, 2011. The winner will be notified by August 10, 2011, and will receive a $1000 prepaid Visa card (to be used for fishing trip transportation and lodging) and a BoatUS Angler “prize pack.” The trip will take place in Mark’s home state of Michigan.

Zona, also a former tournament angler, says he’ll “be nice” to the winner regardless of fishing ability, and says his “Awesome Fishing Trip” will be the trip of a lifetime – even centuries – but he does not promise any kind of guaranteed catch. “I’m going to show the lucky winner all of my favorite local fishing holes and hope for the best, and then I will have to erase their memories somehow,” chuckled Zona.
