DESTIN — This year's Spring Fishing Classic at Bass Pro Shops, 4301 Legendary Drive in Destin, provides adults, children and families the chance to learn how to fish at Bass Pro Shops stores across the U.S. and Canada at no cost.

The free 17-day event, which runs from Feb. 28 to March 16, features fishing seminars, learning from the pros, and special activities for kids. Plus, one lucky winner will walk away with a grand prize of a new Nitro Z-7 performance bass boat.

“Bass Pro Shops is dedicated to making sure families have fun together outdoors and events such as this are the perfect way for them to learn how,” said Katie Mitchell, Bass Pro Shops spokeswoman, “With this year’s event offering new workshops, seminars, and kids’ activities, we’re expecting the 2014 Classic to be another great event.”

In addition, a lucky customer will be the national grand prize winner of a new Nitro Z-7 performance bass fishing boat, which features a 150-horsepower Mercury motor and a trailer.  The winner also gets a guided fishing trip with Bassmaster Elite Series professional angler Edwin Evers on Table Rock Lake near Branson, Mo. This prize package also includes a three-day, three-night stay at nearby Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale, Mo., and up to $3,000 for travel and accommodations. 

The total sweepstakes package value is more than $32,000.
