In 2018, an idea to help grow the LBAA began with a few simple conversations followed by some outlines and finally a decision to take the next step! This idea did not stem from the LBAA owners and leadership, but from within the membership. Wendy Kendrick of Walker, Louisiana, brought forth the idea and is the contact person for all proposed and active LBAA Federation Chapters. All of the hard work and dedication has led to this moment!

The inaugural tournament of the Lady Bass Anglers Association Tri-State Federation will take place on Toledo Bend Reservoir on Saturday, April 20, 2019. It is the first of several regionally organized and located chapters to help grow the grassroots base of the LBAA. The Tri-State Federation Chapter inaugural event is being sponsored by Big Bass Mania!

The LBAA recognizes that there are many more ladies across our country who enjoy fishing than are able to compete at locations across the country. To address this and provide more ladies across the country with the opportunity to compete along-side other women, the option of regional federations has been explored and launched. The Tri-State Federation Chapter is composed of Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas and is the first to launch with interest in others starting up; maybe even in your area. Each Federation is operated independently and by anglers within a region and sponsorships are independent of the LBAA. Each federation can qualify one boater and one non-boater to the Lady Bass Classic held in the fall of each year.

As was mentioned before, there are some ladies with the desire to compete with other ladies who simply are not able to travel across the country multiple times a year to compete with the Lady Bass Anglers Association. For some, it is finances and for others it is vacation time. In both cases, a Federation Chapter offers a more affordable option and opportunity. In the case of the Tri-State Federation, members will take part in six (6) events within the region. The top eight (8) in each division will compete in an end of season event to determine which members will qualify for the Lady Bass Classic.

In the coming weeks, Federation Chapter news and information will available on the Lady Bass Anglers Association website. This will contain some basic information about Federation Chapters, including locations, general guidelines and other information that may be of interest.

Alisa Johnson and DeAnnA Lovvorn Crush It Caddo

Written by Leslie Anderson

As the qualifiers for the 2019 LBAA Classic descended upon beautiful and mysterious Caddo Lake, they were greeted with scorching temperatures and sunny skies. The anglers braved the heat, low water conditions, and maze-like channels during practice in their search for a pattern and/or regions holding Caddo hogs.

I grew up in Poor Valley Virginia and left in my 20’s to finish my education. I relocated to Sa NC where I spent 23 years. Recently, I relocated back to the Appalachian mountains and bought a small hunting cabin near the base of Mt Rogers/Chilhowie Va where I currently live with my German Shepherd, Ruger.

My name is Robbie Hartline and I live in Hot Springs, AR. I grew up in the Southwest; Texas, Arizona and New Mexico. My Dad introduced me to fishing as a child and I was hooked from the start. Our approach was quite different then. Most of our fishing was done in a lawn chair hoping to catch whatever would bite. I looked forward to every trip and even won a Zebco 33 in a derby when I was 12.
