Those that follow this podcast also know I do a weekly Monday Night Live Series called The Women's World of Fishing Monday Night Takeover on YouTube and other social media platforms with fellow angler Barbara Harris. This series has been a lot of fun and informative for anglers of all skill levels.
Recently, we were super fortunate to be able to feature on of the winningest female pro bass anglers of all-time, Pam Martin-Wells. To wrap up The Cane River Series of episodes I want to highlight this conversation with Pam as an encore episode of the podcast. It was such a great conversation and Pam is an incredible wealth of knowledge when it comes to bass fishing, I felt it was definitely worth featuring on The Woman Angler & Adventurer podcast as well. Even if you caught the live video, it is worth another listen or two, and be prepared to take notes like I did!
On this week's episode of the show, I have the opportunity to feature one of the most respected anglers that fishes the Women's Pro Bass Tour, Lady Bass Anglers Association Tournament Trail: Alisa Johnson. Alisa has been fishing with the LBAA for 9 years now. She started out at the back of the boat and got to fish with a lot of the Pros that she now competes against as a boater.
She learned a lot from these ladies over the years and it's evident that she's putting the knowledge she gained to great use. She's a consistent angler and I'm so excited for you all to get the chance to meet her as we chatted backstage right before she had to weigh in at the Cane River Wildcard tournament on Day 2.
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.
How is it June already and this is the 1st time we've had the opportunity to take the Lance Truck Camper Mobile Podcast Studio AND the Key West 230 Bay Reef to a Women's Pro Bass Tour Tournament? We've been building and building for this moment since last fall and the time has FINALLY come.
Just in time for the Wildcard Tournament on Cane River in Natchitoches, LA. This is the final event of the year before the Fall Classic on Logan Martin in Alabama...will I qualify? To put it out into the Universe, I already set up our reservation at an RV park for that event after learning my lesson this year with the craziness of the industry. This was one of the major reasons this is the 1st time this pair is traveling together to a tournament.
