Win a very nice bass boat, and then give it away to a less fortunate fisherman...

A Jasper man surprised everyone at the final weigh in of the Big Bass Splash on Sunday when he suddenly decided to give the boat he had just won to another man, who had also fished in the tournament.

Fred Tillman McMahon told the crowd that he decided to do so after he learned that Albert Jenkins of Port Neches had fished the entire three days of the event from a dock, instead of being in a boat like McMahon and the others who had competed in the event.

McMahon, who is reportedly retired from ExxonMobil, made the announcement shortly after he won the Triton bass boat in a drawing at the end of the annual event held on Lake Sam Rayburn.

McMahon said “I thought I would never do this, but I won the boat at the McDonald’s Big Bass Tournament and then gave it away to a man that did not have a boat and he fished three days off the dock. I feel blessed.”

Almost everyone that had attended to watch the presentation of awards and prizes stood and cheered when McMahon made the announcement.
