“The wind didn’t blow today and it allowed me to slow down and fish the way I wanted to,” she said. “By 10 a.m., I had four fish and was looking for a fifth. Everywhere I went, there were other competitors on the spots I wanted to fish. Finally around 1:30, I started culling as I was able to get on a couple spots and let it (the worm) do its thing.”
She used a Tiki Stick worm rigged wacky style in New Orleans color.
Alabama’s Kim Bain-Moore took second with 22.41 pounds.
