Fishing enthusiasts who want their 15 minutes of fame may get their chance through the BoatUS “Best Catch” Photo Contest.

Former pro angler and fishing personality Mark Zona hosts the Bassmaster Elite Series and his own “Awesome Fishing Show,” and the winner of the contest will spend a day fishing on camera with Zona.

During May anglers can submit a past or present photo of any catch to the contest and could wind up fishing with the “Z-man,” as he’s known to fans. Full contest details and rules can be found at BoatUs.com/Catch.

BoatUS said the grand-prize winner will be provided $1,000 for travel expenses and will head to Zona���s favorite lake in Michigan. Also part of the top prize is a one-year, unlimited water towing membership with services from TowBoatUS, with Unlimited Trailer Assist providing as much as 100 miles of on-road towing for trailers and tow vehicles.

The winner’s package also includes a BoatUS membership and an annual membership to FishTrack — a fishing, weather and navigation-planning tool. Winners will be chosen and notified by June 9, and photos will appear in BoatUS Magazine.

BoatUS said Zona is one of the most recognizable faces in outdoor television.

“I don’t want our winner to have the trip of their life,” he said. “I want them to leave and feel like they had an out-of-body fishing dream.”
