Judy Antle makes last BASS tour stop in Georgia this week
In Sept. 18-24 Issue

By Derek Aaron

Times Journal Sports Editor

Judy Antle headed out last week to fish the last stop on the Women’s Bassmaster tour for 2008 at Clarks Hill Lake in Evans, Georgia.

She said the Georgia/South Carolina lake has been experiencing low water levels and the actual launch is experiencing low levels where ladies can’t launch the boats.

They will be launching from other sites around the lake but the weigh-ins will be held at the lake’s Wildwood Park.

Antle said Academy SPorts is the sponsor of the Women’s Bassmaster Tour with the final day’s weigh in held has the Academy Sports store in Evans.

The fishing dates for the tournament are Thursday and Friday this week with the top 20 from those days moving on to fish Saturday.

The creel limit is five fish a day, 12” long largemouth bass, smallmouth or spotted bass.

Antle said this is the deciding tournament to see which women will be the first to join the male participants in the Bassmaster Classic.

“I am excited any time that I can go fishing,” Antle said. “I leave the husband at home to care for the dogs and work, he is a trooper to let me go and enjoy my fishing and visit with my friends from all over the world.”

Antle said the tour has lost several women to cancer this year and that they will be missed.

“The average age of the women on the tour is 45 and this is mostly due to ability to travel from home after the children are grown,” she said.

“I am fortunate that my employer, Roy Lee Helm, American Cable, understands my passion and works with me to allow me to travel 4-5 weeks a year fishing.”

She said she is still working with many local business owners for the 2009 season.

“I hope that I will have a wrapped boat and truck come spring of next year,” she said.

Anyone of interest to help support or sponsor Judy can get in touch with her at American Cable.

She said she would like to thank American Cable, Unlimited Marine and and Tim’s Bait & Tackle for their support and sponsorship this year.

“They have made the tour a pleasure by the help they have given me,” she said.

Also, Judy and her husband, Henry, qualified for the $30,000 MidWest Classic to be held on Kentucky Lake and also the $30,000 Renegade Classic.
