Born and raised in Fort Worth, TX, Trait has the competitive spirit and the determined drive to potentially make history. She took 4th in her first tournament ever – The 2011 Texas State Bass Tournament – and her second tournament happened to be the Open on Lewisville in 2012. Since then she’s been one of the only women to compete exclusively on the on the Bassmaster Open Tour Circuit.
Trait is the type of angler who would rather be thrown to the wolves when it comes to competition. She could have eased her way into the pro tour by being cautious, but her background in athletics, business and finance gave her the confidence to jump in head first. She now boasts a plethora of sponsorships, and is pushing herself to become the first female to break through to the Elite series. Be sure to keep up with Trait on her Facebook page.
