The Gateway Bass ‘n Gals started out their 2019 tournament season at Table Rock Lake, on April 13 and 14th.
The weather made it very challenging, especially on Sunday but luckily this group of ladies are not only tough, but are also a determined and dedicated group of female anglers. As one angler stated, “We are like the US Mail…no rain, wind, sleet or hail (or in our case snow) will keep us from the glory of hooking that Big Bass.”
Pictured here is Leslie Anderson (who also fishes with the Women’s Pro Circuit, the Lady Bass Anglers Association). On the first day she weighed in 1 fish at 1.92 lbs. On the second day she had 3 keepers that came in at 6.28 lbs. and also claimed big bass on day two which weighed 2.44 lbs. Leslie’s total weight for both days was 8.20 lbs.
Lynda Gessner (who also fishes on the Women’s Pro Circuit) had two keepers on the 1st day at 3.41 lbs but only had 1 keeper on day two. Her total weight for the tournament was 5.32 lbs.
Karen Menger weight in one bass on the first day at 2.22 lbs which also happened to be Big Bass for the first day of the tournament.
Cuban Weathers-Curcuru weighted in one fish on day 2 at 2.11 lbs.
The weather may have been challenging, but the food was awesome and the camaraderie was the best part. We would like to thank Bonnie, Brenda and Alissa for braving the cold and being a part of our first 2019 Bass ‘n Gals Tournament.
Results: 1st place – Leslie Anderson
