Marianne Huskey made fishing history when she won the Anglers Insight Marketing (AIM) Angler of the Year award. This marked the first time in the history of major professional fishing tournament circuits that a female angler has won an Angler of the Year award.

"It means so much to be the first woman to ever accomplish this," said
the Lund Boats pro about being the very first woman to win angler of the
year in either a professional walleye or bass circuit. (Think about how
many years, tournaments and tours that covers.)
"I hope this
helps change the mindset for some women, giving them the confidence to
take the boat out and fish on their own," continued Huskey. "A lot of
women just feel like 'it's not their place.'" Huskey's historic feat
proves nothing could be further from the truth, as she went up against
the best walleye anglers in North America.
