This week's special guest, Nebraskan Jennifer Mues, is one busy lady. She's a Professional Kayak Angler, a Podcast Host herself (of the Bass Fishing Dads Podcast), Social Media Consultant, and Sponsored Angler & Regional Team Leader for Bonafide Kayaks. If all that didn't keep her busy enough, she's also a busy wife and mother.
In this episode, Jennifer talks about how she got into kayak fishing, her journey to fishing the 1st official Kayak Fishing Event at the Bassmaster Classic, which was earlier this year at Possum Kingdom Lake in Mineral Wells, TX. Plus she shares a harrowing story that happened during practice fishing for that event which very easily could have ended in tragedy.
Welcome to Episode 201 of The Woman Angler & Adventurer Podcast! We're moving on to another epic 200 episodes! I can't think of a better way to kick things off than with my special guest this week, Becky Iaconelli!
I'm sure you're already familiar with the Iaconelli name, via of course the famed bass angler Mike, affectionately referred to as "Ike." Becky, Mike's wife, does A LOT behind the scenes to help Mike's career as far as sponsorships, marketing and much more.
Welcome to a milestone! The 200th episode of The Woman Angler & Adventurer podcast. Since this show launched back in 2018, we've had only a few West Coast anglers on the show- not nearly enough. So I can't think of a better way to celebrate our 200th episode with another West Cost angler- Clara Ricabal!
Clara's origins are from Cuba, so she's bi-lingual and part of Takemefishing.org's Women Making Waves campaign, as well as their Vamos A Pescar initiative to help get more women and minorities involved in the sport of fishing.
This week meet a TakeMeFishing.org Women Making Waves WaveMaker Nicole Jacobs. Nicole's main mission is to promote equity and inclusion in the world of bass fishing. She executes her mission very well despite juggling fishing some big pro bass tournaments, being a single mom, and going to grad school!
One of the main slogans on this show has been "if she can do it, you can do it" and that's what this episode is all about. Sharing Nicole's story in order to encourage you to chase your fishing dreams!
