PRO STAFF | Crystal Coley, Angler Profile
I’m a 33 year old mother of 2 boys.
YEARS BASS FISHING
I live in Ticonderoga NY, nestled between 2 lakes. Lake Champlain and Lake George! I started fishing when I was 8, my father taught me how to fish. Fishing has definitely changed my life in ways only I can understand. It is my passion.
This year I started tournaments on Champlain and so far, so good. I will continue to fish them the rest of the year. I am also planning a charity event for early fall and I am beyond excited to announce it! I am also working with the Essex County 4H kids teaching them how to fish and safety awareness.
My mother passed away when she was 40 from cancer; when I needed her the most. There wasn’t as much awareness as there is now. When I was 25, I had cervical cancer and went through treatments. That’s when I found out about Pink fishing. I am honored to be a part of their family. I have been with Pink Fishing for 2 years now and it’s been the time of my life. I received Member of the Month for August, and Member of the Year 2015. My main goal is to always create awareness. If my mother was diagnosed 3 months earlier, she would still be here… early detection is key. This year will be better than last, and last was pretty unbeatable. I look forward to a great year ahead!
