How Started Bass Fishing: My mom took me fishing. Twenty years ago, my husband and I started team tournament bass fishing. Currently, we fish the American Bass Anglers Couples' Team-SC Division.

Career Dream: Have already realized three: (1) to fish WBT as a co-angler; (2) to place in the Top 20 — placed 4th at Neely Henry, my first WBT event; (3) to win an event (Lake Maumelle, Little Rock, Ark.); and (4) to fish and do my best at the 2009 WBT Championship on the Red River.

Career Highlights: Fishing with some of the most awesome lady anglers! I've learned so much by being a co-angler.

Favorite Bass Water: Lake Greenwood, S.C. (my two biggest bass came from there)

Big Bass: 6-pound, 3-ounce largemouth from Lake Greenwood, S.C., using a Booyah spinnerbait (chartreuse and white)
