A Check On Day One
Casey Scanlon poses with his Weigh-to-Win check.
On an auditorium stage inside the Wagoner, Okla., Civic Center, B.A.S.S. pro and BoatUS ANGLER member Casey Scanlon was awarded a paycheck in front of hundreds of his fellow competitors long before anybody made a cast at the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Central Open on Fort Gibson Lake.
Scanlon posed quickly for photographers and accepted a round of applause at the pre-tournament meeting while holding the oversized check for $300. He received the bonus from BoatUS ANGLER for his participation in their "Weigh-to-Win" program and his win at the most recent Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Central Open on Table Rock Lake.
“You can’t beat ‘Weigh-to-Win’ for the price of the membership,” said Scanlon, who mowed lawns and did landscape work in Kansas City before turning pro. The 28-year-old Scanlon demonstrated wisdom beyond his years by signing up for both the BoatUS ANGLER Unlimited On Road and On Water Towing Services for just $72.
While thankfully, he’s yet to need mechanical or towing assistance, Casey fishes and travels to and from tournaments with confidence knowing BoatUS ANGLER will be there should he need them, and with $300 in “Weigh-to-Win” money he’s already quadrupled the money he spent to become a member.
His win at Table Rock not only put $300 worth of “Weigh-to-Win” money in his pocket, but qualified him in the 2013 Bassmaster Classic on Oklahoma’s Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees. If he wins the Classic, he’ll put an additional $1,500 in his pocket as a registered member in the BoatUS ANGLER “Weigh-to-Win” program.
For now, he’s just grateful to make a living as a full-time pro. “This life beats mowin’ grass any day of the week,” he concluded.

Stay In Contention With BoatUS ANGLER Membership
"This spring while fishing Kentucky Lake, I was 50 miles from the ramp and I had a motor trouble on tournament day. I immediately contacted the 24/7 TowBoatUS dispatch center and before I knew it, the tow boat was on its way. With the help of TowBoatUS and the local tow boat captain, I was able to return to the ramp in time for the weigh-in. Without your services, I would not be in contention for qualification for the Bassmaster Weekend Series regional championship this year. I cannot say enough good things about your services and I will be telling everyone I know to become a member. BoatUS ANGLER rocks!" —Travis Cockburn— BoatUS ANGLER Member
