Female Anglers – Special Edition of Ike Live!

Pittsgrove, NJ, March 3, 2015. Three professional bass anglers—Pam Martin-Wells, Trait Crist and Nicole Jacobs—join Mike Iaconelli on the Female Anglers Special Edition of Ike Live!, Sunday, March 8, at 7:00 pm ET, live-streaming at MikeIaconelli.com. A free-form fan call-in/tweet-in follows at 9:30.

IKE LIVE - March 8 - to pubsPam Martin-Wells, winner of a WBT championship and four BASS events, has dominated women’s bass fishing for a while now. She is the all-time money ­­­­leader on the WBT and the only woman to make the top 25 in the Bassmaster Classic, against a field of top male anglers.

Trait Crist turned to bass fishing to fill the competitive void she felt after lettering in basketball, volleyball and golf in high school. She started fishing bass tournaments in 2012, and now—with eight sponsors backing her, she fishes the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens in hopes of qualifying for the Elite Series and Bassmaster Classic.

Last May, newcomer Nicole Jacobs placed 14th in a field of 187 co-anglers at her first tournament, the Bassmaster Northern Open #1 on Lake Douglas in Dandridge, TN. Like every pro, she studies the lake’s topography, conditions and pattern; practices with different lures, and develops a plan.
