Growing up on a farm in southwest Missouri, I have memories of fishing in creeks, rivers and farm ponds with my Dad from as early as four or five years old.  I have been in the Gateway Bass n Gals since 2009.  I decided to join because it gives me the opportunity to learn a lot from the other ladies and to fish different places.  My favorite way to fish is with a Texas rigged worm.  I’m still learning the proper way to use some baits/techniques, but I’ve come a long way from fishing with a worm and a bobber with my dad.  My favorite lake that we fish is Kentucky Lake because I always seem to fish well there and weigh in fish on tournament day. When I’m not bass fishing, I also love to fish for trout on the White River in Arkansas.
