Kentucky Lake Tournament, Just a Little Wet

As you can see from these pictures, it was a rather cold, wet weekend for the ladies.  Although the fish were not cooperating, fun was had by all.

With the New Year roaring in with lots of cold weather, I am positive all the ladies are looking forward to warmer weather and getting a line wet!

The Rookie of the Year was Lulu Kaonohi.  When Lulu first joined the club she owned a Jon boat which she and her father had completely redone.  After fishing the club tournaments, she decided to invest in a fiberglass boat and now has a Stratos bass boat powered by a 115hp motor.

 

 

 

 

 

The great thing is we are all women who LOVE to fish and we encourage others who like to fish.  We are looking for a few new club members who, not only like to fish, want to have fun.  Even if you are new to bass fishing, we will help you with every aspect from what line to use to picking out tackle.  You’ll fit right in, no matter what your experience is.

We hold our club meetings at 7:00 p.m. the first Wednesday of the month at Rookie’s Bar & Grill located at 3721 New Town Blvd., St. Charles, MO 63301.  Come early and enjoy some good food!!!
