Have you entered the new Chevy "Win a Trip to Fish with a Pro" Contest yet? Keep an eye on the advertisements popping up on the top half of the web site pages - 3 days and 2 nights including flight, hotel and fishing equipment for 2 persons to fish with a Chevy pro in Pittsburgh at the 2009 FLW Cup August 1st to August 3rd.

I don't think you get to choose who you want to fish with if you win the contest, but I'm not sure yet how that will play out. You find out if you win around June 4th.

Thought it would be fun though to see who you would like to fish with most?!?

I choose Dion. I was actually paired up with him as a co-angler on the 2nd day of an Everstart Tourney on Champlain. However high winds forced the day to be canceled. Boy was I bummed!!

Wow, that's a really, really tough decision.  But, by the slightest of margins, I would have to go with Larry Nixon.

I also went with Nixon. I almost went with Clausen, but just couldn't pass up the legendary Nixon.

I had to choose Nixon.  I think he would be the most fun and informative of them all.  I attended a Bassmaster U a few years ago and he was part of it.  I really enjoyed listening to him talk and tell stories.  Given the chance, I would do it again in a minute.

Make it a bandwagon, I'd have to say Nixon too.  The guy is astounding at finding fish; that's one of the reasons he was so deadly in the old "megabucks" format.  From what I've seen over the years, I think he'd be quite informative & entertaining.

I can still picture him clear as day in florida with an 8# hog jumping during a fight in the pads as he turns toward the camera and says "Oh my Lord!"

Although the ultimate for me would be a day with KVD.  He's a machine out there.  The In-fisherman article on how he practices was fascinating, I want to know more...

There are several distinguished names but I have to pick the "local" and go w/ Kim.  I've got his Smallmouth Neighborhood Series (which I recomend) and he seems to just have fun while out on the water to go along w/ the knowledge.  A few years ago before a Stren Series I was next to him in the parking lot after loading and he talked w/ my wife and I for about a half hour just hangin' out and was not "distracted or bothered" in the least.

Dion was in the hotel doom next to me in detroit a few years back. He has rather "self centered" I thought. Was not impressed by him. I was impressed by Karen Savik though. I talked to her in the parking lot for quite a while...

Thanks to the popularity of GreatLakesBass.com because of all of you, I was able to get a direct entry link updated into this thread for your convenience. I think this is a pretty cool contest for any bass angler.

Hope you all entered. It would be cool to see one of you win this!!

Very interesting to see Larry Nixon is kicking butt :o !!

Im with you on that one Stricker all the way. I would only hope he had his under water camera and dive gear with him. Hook and look is one of my fav shows.

I Know he is not on the list but I would love a day on the lake with mike Ike .That guys seem like he would be a riot to fish with. He get all kinds of crazy on the boat yelling a screaming trowing rods and what not. I think it would be a blast as long as I didn't get hit in one of his hissy fit's LOL
