News Release: “A Blond And Her Boat Fishing Trips”
Professional angler Patricia Strutz is on a mission to get more women on the water. As a fishing school instructor she encourages, educates, and provides opportunities for women to take up the sports of boating and fishing.
Her ‘A Blond & Her Boat Fishing Trips’ offer all-women’s, couples, and mixed group fishing excursions to Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Canada. Coupled with other top pros, Strutz teaches both boating and fishing skills, “We’ve found that the greatest deterrent for women learning to fish is actually their lack of boat operation skills. So, in addition to fishing techniques, we teach things such as launching and loading a boat, running a trolling motor, and reading a depthfinder. I always like to say that we offer the chance to ‘learn to back up your boat & trailer without your husband yelling at you!’
Sponsored by companies such as Shimano, Frabill, and Mepps, these venues walk new anglers through the myriad of equipment choices on the market. Advances in gear have made outdoor tackle much more female-friendly, and Strutz gladly showcases these products.
Different levels of fishing experiences are offered; from a Women’s Beginner Bass Trip on small Northwoods lakes to an advanced Couples Chasing Muskies Trip held on trophy potential waters. Most popular are the Musky Huntress Trips. “In addition to the all-women’s trips, we do offer couples and mixed group trips. It is our aim to teach gals these wonderful outdoor sports and thus encourage more couples and families to take them up together.”
The group atmosphere fosters a sense of confidence and genuine camaraderie. Many times at the end of the trip participants are exchanging phone numbers and planning future fishing trips. Sprinkled into each outing are campfires, outdoor cooking, and wildlife identification & appreciation games… truly a complete Northwoods experience.
