B.A. Fishing began with a determined three year old who refused to let go of her Mickey Mouse rod. “I got one, Dad!” she said with teeth clenched. Her Dad looked over with doubt, thinking it was the usual snag. To his surprise, the rod pulsed and the little girl reeled with all her might. Moments later, dinner was on board. It was a flounder, and a nice one at that measuring in at 24”. Bri has been hooked ever since.
As she grew up she grew as an angler too, trying all kinds of tackle, rods, reels, and searching for spots. Every experience was different than the last, each teaching her something new. A passion grew to explore more. People often discouraged her, "it isn’t safe!” they said and still say. But that hasn't stopped her. After she moved to Florida, she was determined to get on the water and discover the vast Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterways. She bought a paddleboard, a milk crate, and PVC pipe for rod holders and was off; in search of the biggest fish she could find.
Snook, jack, and tarpon became primary targets. The hope was finding a monster that would take her on the paddleboard ride of a lifetime. One day, a 41” snook found her hook, and Bri was off. Soon she added kayak fishing to the arsenal and found herself on her first sailfish sleigh ride. Once she got on the Sea-Doo FISH PRO her adventures expanded. She chases mahi-mahi, dives for lobsters, and coined the phrase “ocean camping” by camping on the water on an inflatable dock. The adventures haven't ceased with B.A. Fishing, and there's still so much of the world to explore. Come and see an authentic female angler who is determined to experience the wonder and beauty of pure adventure and saltwater fishing.
