East Texas Lady Anglers

Reel Girls Fish

East Texas Lady Anglers (ETXLA)

The 2023 season was our first year as a ladies’ bass tournament trail with ladies traveling from all over to fish our tournaments on Sam Rayburn and Toledo Bend.  Our organization is comprised of ladies of ages 16 and up, from all different walks of life with one thing in common, Bass Fishing. The ETXLA ladies will be a sisterhood of strong women who compete against one another, while being ambassadors to the sport of bass fishing.  Our mission is to promote, encourage and mentor young ladies who are interested in the sport of fishing by providing a local/regional tournament trial that they can fish and gain experience, while being competitive in a friendly environment.

Reel Girls Fish!

The idea of Reel Girls Fish started in 2009 when Denise Sustaita decided to create some cute shirts, jewelry and accessories for the woman angler.  Since then Reel Girls Fish has made an appearance an numerous major tournament shows including the Bassmaster Classic and the Forrest Wood Cup and ICAST.  We strive to come out with new, fresh designs on a regular basis and hope you enjoy the products we have created.
