Spring can be winter’s mongrel when it comes to extreme fishing tournaments through snow, sleet and harsh winds, and only a true fishing enthusiast would be caught on the water in it. What are you doing here? It’s what you ask yourself on a freezing hell boat launch staring down into the icy depths. It’s all good the cold as hell shock, being outdoors in a boat chasing the bass in layers of clothing that make you durable. The second day of the LBAA Women’s Pro Tour on Neely Henry was warmer, sunnier, and less bulky in terms of clothing worn.
Pam Martin-Wells “ the fish whisperer” heard the bass telling stories of the tough big mudder and the place that would deliver that takes place in Mother Nature she brought 20.66 back to the dock, her two-day total. Lisa Johnson in second place, led the first day with 10-15 and finished the tournament with 12-95. Kim-Bain Moore in third place, another Pro angler feeling her primal fishing genes exhausting the limits caught 9.68.
Diane Uebelhack brought 5.91 from the icy liquid waters on old man Neely Henry and came in first place. Linda Sands exhausting the limits weighed in with 5.45 total tournament weight for her seat in second, and Vicki Henderson took third place with 3.31.
