What you should know about Rhonda:

How Rhonda started fishing

My Dad took me fishing when I was little and have loved it ever since.  


Aspirations or goals with fishing

Too be the first woman to win an ABA National Tournament.  


Favorite way to fish

Soft plastics and top water are my favorite but to be honest whatever the fish are biting! 


Most exciting fishing experience

Winning my first AFT tournament out of my own boat on Weiss Lake and being inducted into the ABA Hall of Fame is a moment I will never forget!!!


How Rhonda preps for a tournament

Three favorite search baits

Crankbait, topwater and chatterbait


Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.

The day started slow and didn't have a keeper the first 2 hours.  So I moved and caught my first keeper and then broke off my favorite crankbait.  Tied one I've never used before and started catching them almost every cast.  Moved to another row of deeper docks and caught my biggest fish 7.06 largemouth.  It was a day I could do no wrong and won the tournament.  Figured out what dock posts they were on and continued to catch fish almost every cast.  Those days are few and far between! 


Most challenging part of tournament fishing

Making time to pre-fish! 


When tournaments don't go my way

Its junk fishing 101 when the fish won't cooperate! 


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Start as co-angler and learn everything you can!  Most anglers will share their knowledge with you!
