Reflecting on the Waters: Jennifer-Lyn Bowden's 2023 Fishing Season with Grit N Glory Guided Fishing

As the 2023 fishing season comes to a close, Jennifer-Lyn Bowden, the owner and operator of Grit N Glory Guided Fishing out of Revelstoke, BC, takes a moment to reflect on a year filled with memorable moments, exciting catches, and the challenges that come with pursuing the elusive trophies of the deep.

Fishing Season Overview:
-
For Jennifer, the 2023 fishing season was nothing short of exceptional. From spring through fall, she experienced a series of highs and lows that ultimately shaped her journey on the water. The Party Girl spoon emerged as a standout performer, proving its worth for nearly three months straight. Jennifer recalls fondly the time spent in Ukee, where despite facing a learning curve, she managed to dial in her Gibbs products effectively. She emphasizes the importance of preparation and mentions stocking up on more Gibbs gear for the upcoming summer. However, challenges arose during the winter months, with fish showing a preference for bucktails. Despite this, Jennifer remained steadfast, dedicating hours to experimenting with Gibbs products to refine her approach.

Areas of Focus:
-
While Upper Arrow Lake remained Jennifer's primary stomping ground, she also ventured into new territories, including Lake Revelstoke. Despite finding it less productive, Jennifer remains determined to explore different lakes more extensively in the coming seasons. Her attachment to Upper Arrow Lake reflects her desire to establish an intimate connection with a single body of water, akin to it being her home away from home.

Species of Focus:
-
Rainbow and Bull Trout remained Jennifer's primary targets throughout the previous season. Pursuing the thrill of landing the big one, Jennifer had her fair share of exciting moments. Among them, a particularly memorable day stands out when she managed to bring a 12lb Bull Trout to the boat, a testament to her skill and dedication.
-

Top-Performing Gibbs Products:
-
Gibbs products played a pivotal role in Jennifer's success on the water, with the Party Girl Skinny G emerging as a standout performer. Its consistent effectiveness over the summer months, accounting for the majority of catches on some outings, solidified its place as a go-to lure in Jennifer's tackle box. Additionally, the Trailhead and Tailspin Skinny G's also proved their worth, contributing to successful outings and reaffirming Jennifer's trust in Gibbs quality.

As the chapter closes on the 2023 fishing season, Jennifer-Lyn Bowden and Grit N Glory Guided Fishing look forward to the challenges and adventures that await them in the seasons to come. With her passion for angling and unwavering dedication, she is poised to continue making waves in the world of fishing, one catch at a time.
