The Fishing Trophy  
Hall of Fame

This is the hallowed page of honor at the Purple Sage Fishing Site, where we pay homage to the members of the team who have distinguished themselves in the sport of fishing. Here, we will acclaim notable accomplishments, and special awards, such as the Master Angler Award as issued by many States of the Union.

Date : July 26, 2003
Location Caught : Prarie Hollow Lake,
James A. Reed Wildlife Refuge
Jackson County, Missouri
Overview : Katrina caught a Ten Inch Blue Gill using a chartreuse and red, rubber jig on four pound test line. Another nine and a half inch Blue Gill, (just shy of the award size,) was caught by Katrina about 100 yards east of the first fish, using a red worm and hook. Katrina also caught and landed several respectable size Large Mouth Bass during the same afternoon. All fish were caught and released.
Award Presented : Missouri Master Angler; 10 Inch Blue Gill
Technique for Success: Light weight spinning tackle. Four to eight pound test line is used, deepening on condition. Katrina likes the “sparkly – squishy” lures.
