In the sports world, we cover quite a few fishing tournaments throughout the year and typically we show the prize winners holding up their big catch.
Usually those winners are male. But not this week in Athens.
Pam Ridgle of Brownsboro won the Athens Bass Club Tuesday night tournament by catching a 21 1/4 inch, 5.3 pound largemouth bass.
Quite a few women fish, but female anglers are not always in the spotlight. KLTV 7Sports asked Pam how it felt to be the first woman to win the tournament.
