Chat with Kim Bain-Moore
An Australian native, Bain-Moore caught her first fish at the age of four and has kept casting her reel. At age 19, she left her local fishing waters and flew to Los Angeles to pursue a career in professional bass fishing. Her first largemouth bass was an 8-pounder that she caught in the California delta. That same year, she traveled to Lake Michigan for the 2000 Bassmaster Classic and was wowed by the energy and excitement of the men?s event.
As a 28-year-old, Bain-Moore realized her dream and became the first woman in the event?s 39-year history to qualify for the previously all-male Bassmaster Classic. She finished 47th at the Shreveport, La. event and is now competing on the 2009 WBT.
After building a successful career, Bain-Moore now works with Evinrude, which is also making history by celebrating 100 years since founder Ole Evinrude invented the first outboard engine in 1909. Check out the story at Evinrude100Years.com
