Lady Anglers Compete in Truly Ladies Classic Tournament

ALPENA, MI – With the 48th Annual Brown Trout Festival coming to a close, the ladies had the chance to head out onto the Alpena water on Friday to compete in the Truly Ladies Classic after being postponed due to wind conditions on Thursday.

The Ladies Classic tournament kicked off at 6 am on Friday and concluded at 4 pm. Women anglers were seen hauling in coolers full of catches as they waited for their turn at the weigh-station. Each team of women could only hope that their hooks were enough to top the leaderboard.

Last year’s winner, Marie Mellen, had high hopes for her team at the weigh-station. “Last year we won first place, and we’re hoping to come back with another first place title,” she said. “The scales will tell.”

The scales certainly did tell all at Brown Trout’s Truly Ladies Classic. The leaderboard is as follows:

  1. Angela Tanner, 76.85
  2. Meghann Varnum, 74.55
  3. Angela Soltysiak, 71.85
  4. Juanita Karsten, 70.5
  5. Dawn Martin, 67.1
