What was the key to success for your Toledo Bend tournament?
My co angler and I decided on fishing the back of Hurricane Creek. While many other anglers were in there fishing the open flats, we concentrated on button willows (buck brush) in 3-4 ft deep water. We pitched numerous soft plastics deep into the brush, I finally settled on a 7” lizard made by Fancy Girl Custom Baits in a color I requested, green pumpkin with red and copper flake. I would pitch deep, getting the bait over a tiny twig, let it go to the bottom. Pick it up a few inches, shake, and let settle back to the bottom. I would do this 6-8 times, pull over limb and repeat until it was clear if the brush. The bass would find it, aggravated, would attack the lizard and eat it. I lost one big fish trying to wrestle it out of the thick brush.
How does it feel to be sitting on top of the field of some great lady anglers?
I feel blessed, the lady Pros I compete against are some of the best anglers I have competed against! So, I have developed patience and determination. Slowing down and dissecting every piece of cover. I’m sure I will be unseated during the year as I am fishing against some truly exceptional anglers.
Wendy’s current sponsors are?
I would like to thank my sponsors who support me every year. River valley crankbaits, Fancy Girl Custom Baits, and TRC Rod covers
