ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 30, 2012 – A grand prize that includes a two-day guided fishing trip this summer in the famed fishing grounds around Venice, Louisiana, and a spot on the Cabela’s Fisherman’s Handbook TV Show are up for grabs in the BoatUS Angler “Star for a Day” Sweepstakes, which kicks off today and runs through June 24.

With what some call the richest fishing grounds in the world, a vast network of fish-attracting offshore oil rigs, unusually deep waters just a few miles from the coast and a thriving Delta fishery, Venice, Louisiana, is the home port for any angler looking for a fishing trip of a lifetime.
The trip is scheduled for July 21-22 and includes a licensed guide, lodging and food (for one), and a $500 travel stipend. The lucky winner and guide will also be videotaped for an upcoming episode of Cabela's Fisherman's Handbook which showcases many of the top fishing destinations in the world.
The lucky winner will be chosen at random by June 30. Contest sponsor BoatUS Angler is the fishing division of BoatUS, providing on-the-road and on-the-water towing services helping anglers spend more time fishing and less time worrying about breakdowns. Fishing boat insurance and guide insurance is also available.
