Shaw Grigsby Jr talks about how he went from racing motorcycles to tournament bass fishing at the 2014 ICAST show.

Shaw Grigsby Jr.’s been a stalwart on the professional tournament scene since 1977 but did you know that he started because he didn’t have a motorcycle race one weekend? Prior to that weekend he’d fished about once a month with his father but his primary hobby at the time was motorcycle racing.

Well, after Grigsby fished his first event with a close friend, his hobby soon changed.

We had an opportunity to talk with Shaw at ICAST 2014 about that first tournament he fished and here we share it with you. It’s amazing how one event can change a person’s life. If not for his buddy, we may never have known of Shaw as a bass angler.  Click on the link below for the full video.
