Congratulations to Chloe Turner! She is our Baitshop.com Beauty of the Month for October. You can find her on Instagram @chloerturner! Read below to learn more about this awesome female angler, and congratulations Chloe!
1. Tell us a little about yourself!
Hey there! My name is Chloe, and I grew up in Tyler, Texas. I am a proud Christian. I graduated from Texas A&M (Whoop!) and now sell exotic game animals, as well as guide hunts.
2. When did you start fishing? And who got you into the sport?
I started fishing when I was very, very young. My mother actually got me into the sport. Every weekend we would go to our ranch and catch bass, and catfish. We would also go to Lake Tyler and Lake Athens from time to time. From there, I was pretty much hooked! As I got older I traveled to Cabo, Key West, St. Petersburg, Destin, etc and found an addiction for saltwater fishing.
3. What is your favorite fish to catch?
I don’t think I could pick one because every species has its own unique attraction to it! But I’d have to say Blue or Striped Marlin. Everyone always says that once you deep-sea fish, it breaks you on bass fishing, but that is certainly not true. Seeing a bass hit a topwater is just as fun as seeing a marlin jump out of the water.
4. What is the most difficult fish to fight?
I would definitely have to say either an amberjack while deep dropping, or a blue marlin. Both fights are an absolute blast. They each fight differently, but they sure make you wish you didn’t skip arm day! I’ve also fought some pretty hard tree stumps lol!
5. Do you have a favorite lure or bait?
It just depends on what I’m fishing for. If I’m bass fishing, I love the Sexy Shad by Steel Shad Lures. As far as topwaters, I like the Evergreen OB Popper Custom Topwater Bait by Daiwa. Deep-Sea fishing-wise, I like using a live bait, such as ballyhoo.
6. Do you have a favorite place or spot to fish?
Cabo San Lucas or Key west for sure!
7. What are some of your other favorite hobbies?
I do commercial, fashion, promo, and print modeling. I am very into fitness, and watching football. Hunting, is another huge passion of mine. I also love spending time with friends and family.
