Monday Trivia – Another Female First (July 15, 2013)

Female Symbol2[Answer this week’s Trivia Contest correctly and receive a $25 Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits e-coupon, good for anything on the GYCB website. Answers and winner to each week’s contest are revealed on Thursday the same week.]

As we’ve discussed previously here on the Bass Fishing Archives, Vojai Reed, wife of 1986 Bassmaster Classic champion Charlie Reed, was the first woman to compete in a Bassmaster Tournament Trail event. She finished 37th in the 1991 Missouri Invitational and went on to compete in a total of seven B.A.S.S. events.

The Invitationals consisted of a pro-on-pro format, and existed concurrently with tour-level pro-ams. That leads to this week’s question:

Who was the first woman to compete as an amateur in a Bassmaster tour-level tournament?

The answer and winner will be given on Thursday. Good Luck!

    I just read that Charlie Reed died last week. My father fished with Charlie several time from the early to late 90’s when he would come to Buggs Island for tournaments and he was without a doubt one of the nicest guys (especially pro fishermen) that I have ever met. I was a young kid but he left an impression on me. Just thought I’d throw that out since Vojai Reed’s name was thrown out there in this contest.
