It was a hot and humid grind, but we all survived and I'm bringing you a quick recap of my experience on this week's episode! I also had a couple conversations from backstage during weight-in on Day 2 with a couple other anglers, Noella Mclaurin and Shannon Wells to share a little bit about their experience.
While it didn't end well at all for me, I am happy to say I earned enough AOY points throughout the season to qualify to fish The Classic on Logan Martin in September! That was one of my major goals this season, and with it being my 1st as a boater and all the challenges I had to overcome throughout the year, I am very happy to have made it.
Trait Zaldain has had a lot going on since she was last on the show about a year ago. I figured it was a good time to catch up! If you missed the last time we had her on, you can check that out here which was in person at The Bassmaster Classic in Birmingham, AL.
Since then, she and her husband Chris Zaldain launched a new show called Zaldaingerous Presented by Amazon that you can watch on YouTube. We chat about that, recovery from injury, the 2021 season, what her tournament preparation process is like, their new puppy and more!
