Angler Highlights

Hi! My name is Debbie Oswalt. I am from Sibley, Louisiana. I will be fishing as a co angler
for the first time this year (Caddo Lake, LA on 3/2018). Also, my first tournament ever! 
I am married to my husband, Rowdy.  We have two kids, Amanda and Colt who have given us the greatest gift ever......GRANDKIDS! 6 grandgirls- Mallori, Mackenzi, Montgomeri, Emma, Ella and Ryann. They mean the world to me!!!! And yes I have introduced fishing to all of them at a very young age! (I just need a bigger boat! lol)
I have been a member of the Krewe of Gemini since 2006 but my true passion has always been fishing!!!! I have been fishing for about 8 years or so. I haven’t been in any kind of tournament until now (unless you count the “tournaments” between me and my husband every time we fish!!)
We live on the lake and I love to come home from work and fish off the pier or jump in the boat and fish until dark!
I look forward to this year and being a part of the LBAA. Meeting lots of women who have the same passion for fishing and learning new things and of course meeting new friends!
My motto has always been “Yeah, I fish like a girl!!”
I want to thank my beautiful friend Rachel Jones for introducing me to the LBAA and for the great time we have had together talking, learning, laughing and of course fishing!! I couldn’t have asked for a better friend for support and encouragement! And again I thank you and love you “Felicia”, from you “Gina”. #BBFB
I want to thank all my family and friends for your support and cheering me on with their love, patients and understanding. And for helping me with my dream! 
I would also like to thank the following sponsors for their support and encouragement. I appreciate every single one of you and without you this would not be possible!!
