My name is Beckie Joki. I live in northern Wisconsin and have been into competitive bass fishing for several years. I fish with two different clubs here in Wisconsin. This year I will fish with the Park City Bass Anglers, a TBF-affiliated club. This will be my second year fishing with that club, and I’ve enjoyed my time there so far. I would also like to get more involved in the Antigo Bass Warriors club. It is a new club and I think they have a lot of potential to be a great group who have a lot of fun together.
I will also look into fishing some other opens and things of that nature this year. This will be a strange year for me because my boyfriend, Rod, who got me into tournament fishing to begin with, is having some health problems right now. I m unsure he will be able to fish an entire tournament this year. But we will see what happens. I look forward to the season, regardless of how many tournaments I will be able to fish.
I also put out a weekly email newsletter called Wisconsin Tournament Tales. In that newsletter I showcase as many tournaments from around the state as I can find and from which I can get timely results. This has turned into a large project, but one that I truly enjoy. It’s fun to report on all of the tournaments, from the club level and high school fun-timers tournaments, all the way up to the big tournaments with thousands of dollars on the line. I believe that anglers at all levels deserve recognition for their efforts, and I believe Wisconsin Tournament Tales does that.
I started Fish Like a Girl to show women, and all anglers, that fishing is a great sport to get into. And I hope to give you all some tips and tricks that will help you be more successful on the water.
