Salty Girl of the Month – Taylor Schulze
Taylor Schulze from Texas is only 13 and started fishing when she was 2 years old. She enjoys fishing with her brothers in the tanks & on the river at her grandparent’s house near Rockport, Texas & loves to fish in Baffin Bay. When she was small she even filled up the bathtub pretending to be fishing and was found sneaking a fishing line into our family’s fish tank.
Taylor’s favorite memories of fishing was when she caught her monster bass and going out on her first tournament with her mom’s fishing team, "Just Hook'n" and winning the Babette division of Babes on Baffin Blue Fishing Tournament. Her favorite captain is Capt. Chad Verburgt and fishing on the Rockport Redrunner, a Carolina Skiff. Taylor is always learning something new from Capt. Chad.
Taylor's most unusual catch was when she caught a little puffer fish while her favorite fish to catch and eat is Redfish or a Mangrove Snapper. Taylor is a strong advocate of releasing fish back into their habitat. She always is fishing with her lucky reel & Redtail rod with all her crazy fishing buddies. Taylor loves to have Takis (a type of hot chips) on board to munch on and a radio so she can sing along & do her fish dance.
Taylor’s tip for anyone who is starting to fish is to be confident and it's not the amount of fish you catch or the size of the fish, it’s to have fun. Her most important tip, I think we all share is what happens on the boat stays on the boat. Her most recent award was for the longest fish in the Babes on Baffin Blue Tournament. She won an award with a custom rod.
