The Bassmaster Classic media coverage focuses all efforts on the anglers fishing to win that coveted trophy and title. This year, I decided to put some focus on the women behind the Classic anglers, their wives, their rocks, and their biggest fans.
Fishing the Bassmaster Classic, the Elite Series, the FLW Tour, etc., isn’t just jumping in the boat and taking off down the lake. It is a much greater equation. Most of the time the angler’s wife, who, in most cases, is also their business manager, heads this greater equation up. Godfrey Winn said, “No man succeeds without a good woman behind him. Wife or mother, if it is both, he is twice blessed indeed”. For this series, I interviewed five blessings of the 2015 Bassmaster Classic anglers; looking into what makes anglers wives so important to their fishing.
