Second Tournament In The Books!

Second tournament of the year took place at Stockton Lake on May 18 & 19th. The weather was much better than Table Rock – no snow! It was cloudy and a little windy on the 18th but at least the rain held off until weigh-in. Would like to welcome Shelly Russo and Karen Hutter, the club’s newest members, who fished their first tournament with the club – welcome aboard ladies!!!



Leslie Anderson brought 4 to the scale on Day 2 for 8.6.  Combined with the 3 on Day 1which weighed 4.77 – she came out in first place with a total weight of 13.37.  Lucky lady also won the big bass pot on Day 2.


On Day 1 Pam Dugan brought 1 to the scale for 1.63 and 2 on the second day for 4.8.  Her total weight of 6.43 garnered her a second place win.





Alyssa brought this 1.98 to the scale on Day 1 and won the big bass pot for the day!


Shelly weighed in 1 bass at 1.60 on Day 1 and on Day 2 brought two to the scale.  Her total weight for the tournament was 4.33.  This was Shelly’s first tournament with the club and she took third place!  Congratulations!




Karen Menger weighed in 1 keeper  at 1.54; Bonnie Katke weighed in a total of 3.83.

The club’s next tournament is at Bull Shoals Lake on June 8th & 9th.  And don’t forget about the Open Buddy Bass Tournament being held in October at Lake of the Ozarks.

Until next time, tight lines!

First Tournament of 2019 at Table Rock Lack


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

2nd place –  Lynda Gessner

3rd place – Karen Menger

Better Days Ahead

This year has been rather hard on the club. Members have been dealing with health issues and loss of family members. Unfortunately, our website has taken a back seat. However, we are looking forward to 2019 being a better year and hope to get back on track.

Our next meeting will be held on December 5th at  Sport Café off of Hwy. 70 and St. Charles Rock Road.  Meeting will start at 7:00 p.m. but feel free to come early to get a bite to eat and chat with members.

We have a tentative tournament schedule with an Open Buddy Bass Tournament in October at Lake of the Ozarks. As soon as the schedule is finalized, it will be posted. We are also hoping to get all of the tournament information posted on the event calendar.

February 23, 2018 will be the club’s annual Mouse Racing Fundraiser. Please check back for information concerning this fun event.

We hope every one has a happy Thanksgiving and a Blessed Christmas.

Bull Shoals Arkansas -It was HOW HOT?!?


Temperatures were definitely HOT, but so was the fishing!  We had a total of ten dedicated lady anglers, in six boats, on the water dark and early, in order to beat the heat and put a few fish in the live well.

Day 1 of the tournament resulted in a total of 20 beautiful bass being brought to the scale for check-in.  Seven of our 10 competitors caught fish.  The total weight for Saturday was 30.17 pounds with Big Bass going to Sarah Butler.  Congrats Sarah on your 2.69 pound fish.


Day 2 was a little tougher but they took it in stride.  Sunday afternoon found 12 fish at the scale, caught by seven ladies again.  On this day, three new ladies brought in fish that had been shut out on Saturday.  Better late than never girls!! *wink*  Although down slightly in weight, we still had a total of 24.69 pounds of bass to be weighed.  Shout out to Robbie Hartline for your 3.32 bass to win Big Bass on Sunday!


Top 3 finishers for Bull Shoals tournament are:

#1 – Lynda Gessner with 12.71 lbs
#2 – Mickie Wolfenbarger with 9.15 lbs
#3 – Danalee Lofton with 7.71 lbs

Honorable mentions for 4th place going to Robbie Hartline and 5th place going to Leslie Anderson.  It is always nice to share the cash, so better luck next time!

All but one lady managed to catch at least one keeper to bring to weigh… Even in the heat!  You know they are dedicated.  Way to stick with it!  No doubt, we will work on that because we want a PERFECT record when it comes to EVERY angler bringing in a fish to weigh.  All in all, we put another successful tournament in the books for our little Gateway Bass ‘N Gals club.  Thanks to all who participated and assisted in making it happen.  We appreciate all the hard work!

We especially missed all of our members who were not able to make it to this event.  We sure hope to see you at the next one!

Now we can start looking forward to our annual BUDDY TOURNAMENT being held at Table Rock Lake in September!  Spread the word!!!  This is our only open tournament for the year so we hope to see a crowd show up to compete and have fun!

And for the club ladies, updated standings are coming (in case you wonder where you fall in the points for the year so far).
